Happy Holidays

I don't have a project to share but thought 
I would touch base anyways.
Just been busy doing that holiday bustle thing. 

 Decorations are up....

 Dogs were harassed....
I made like 50 cards, but most were cased, and I
would want to give proper credit to those artist...
but there was 50 and it would take 
forever to upload them all...blah, blah. 
I'm trying to cut back on the craziness that over takes
my life this time of year. I did make tags...personalized ones...
big mistake...we buy a lot of crap! LOL

I've also learned a very valuable lesson...stop
buying thin cheap paper!!! 
Don't know how many corners that
has been torn this year due to my 
fabulous wrapping I'm using it up
and buying the good stuff!

 I hope you all get the gifts you
want this Christmas! 
I get one more year of my kids gathering
for Christmas morning. 
Next year Gracee will have to stay home so
Santa can come to 
her house. So, that is my reason to celebrate...
those 3 loves of my life. 
I also wish you and your family a
healthy and prosperous New Year!!!!  
Thanks for stopping by! C~

PTI November Blog Hop

I actually get to play along this time! YAY!
The theme for the hop is SNOW!
I am one of the lucky ones whom
doesn't have to drive to work in
the snow, here in the Midwest. 
Come play along, check out Nichole's
blog. There will be a ton of inspiration
there today!! 

I heat embossed some snowflakes, then distressed
the background. Added the Freshly Fallen flakes.
Then used the sentiment from Holiday Lights!
Thanks for coming by today! Hope you have 
a lovely Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving cards

So I got some of Mo's wonderful digi
stamps for Thanksgiving card. 
I bought Nathaniel and Prudence.
I love these!! I love that Mo's images are 
so classic. I also love that they give
me a reason to pull out the copics! =)
I am always on the look 
out for stamps for Thanksgiving. 

 I hope you get to enjoy time with family
and friends. We will get to spend time with
both sides of our families. I am glad that we
all live close. So many families won't be for that I am thankful!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hey y'all! Sorry I've been MIA lately. 
Just life getting in the way of being
creative. I am currently working on 
my Thanksgiving cards...almost
done! Then I am hitting Christmas 
hard and fast! I made my favorite
'littles' some Halloween cards and
mailed them to them. They love
getting mail.
