I Believe, I Believe...

Merry Christmas Eve! Hope you are enjoying your holiday! I squeezed in one little card today using some Santa goodies from My Mind's Eye. The card base is Stampin' Up! Soft Suede, it is fast becoming one of my all-time favorites. Finally the Kraft has some competition! lol!

Okay, off to watch It's A Wonderful Life (again, it's my all-time favorite movie!) and have some Christmas Eve Chili (improvised since our travel plans had to be rescheduled & I only cook about 3 dishes!) I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I feel blessed to have so many friends out there in the cyber world, thanks for all the love! Hugs and happy stamping!

Moxie Fab: All Creatures Great & Small Challenge!

Schwooo! I barely made it for the Moxie Fab All Creatures Great & Small Challenge! I had several ideas and couldn't commit, hence the two cards. I had great fun making these while watching Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Meet Me In St. Louis. Love those classics!

How are your holiday preparations coming along?! I got a lot knocked out today, but a few more things to buy, everything to wrap, and sweets to bake. Yummmm!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Let It Snow!

Happy Sunday! I know some of you lucky peeps have snow right now, but not us in Texas! It's taking me a little while to unwind and start getting creative since school let out Friday, but I think I'm feeling it now! lol!

I loved the colors in the challenge for Embellish Magazine this week, so yummy! As I just went back to link up, I noticed the challenge was also to use snowflakes...well, I got lucky there because I hadn't read that little detail in the fine print, but just happily happened to use a snowflake! Schwooo! I guess it was meant to be! I also used the FTL 71 from the Clean & Simple blog. I love their sketches and cards!

Are you all ready for the holidays?! I'm afraid I'm not quite there yet, but I don't seem to be doing anything about it either, yikes! Wish me luck this week!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Laura's Sketch #41: Joyeux Noel

Howdy peeps! Long time, no see! For those of you still checking in, thanks for hanging with me! Between trying to keep things under control at school (keeping students busy and engaged while they are about to burst with excitement over Christmas!), plus being sick, things have been crazy! Two and a half days, two and a half days, two and a half days, lol!

We had our school Christmas show tonight and I got home late, but it's the first time I've felt up to stamping for a week, so I decided to go for it with this quick card for Laura's Sketch #41 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I had to go super simple this time with scraps I had laying on my table, but I still like it. I've been eyeing this yummy tree stamp for awhile, and I finally got it a couple of weeks ago, so cute!

Okay, off to bed, but thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are all doing well out there! Hugs and happy stamping!

Laura's Sketch #40: Merry Christmas

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is having a great week! The back to school week has gone very well...maybe it's knowing there's only 3 weeks until 2 weeks of Christmas vacation! lol! Actually, it's down to 12 school days left now, hard to believe!

After a little nap earlier, I decided to make a card for Laura's Sketch 40, even though I should have been doing some other stuff. Oh well! I broke into some new goodies from My Mind's Eye, yummm! (Yes, I copied the same ribbon treatment as my last card, I liked it! lol!)

Keeping it short and sweet, better get to bed...for the sake of the children tomorrow! lol! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
