Joy to You


Good evening!! Whew! It’s been a busy day!! Up at 5:00 to get ready for work and the annual Toys for Kids breakfast.  So much fun and you should’ve seen the Christmas Tree!! Actually, you couldn’t because it was hidden underneath all the donated toys!!!  It was magical once again.  So I’m a little tired :)  But nothing that a little eggnog latte after work wouldn’t fix :)  I was up at our Chapters Bookstore getting a few gifts and couldn’t resist a little pick me up :)  Then I got home and had 2 emails from CARDS magazine…they were late with their card calls this month so I have to get the cards ready to send away tonight so I can mail them tomorrow.  BUT I had to make this card first.  I so wanted to join Winter and Ann in their final Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge.  They have had a wonderful and inspiring year, but are moving on :)  The challenge is to add texture to your card.  Well, I have some sparkly white felt that was cut into this fabulous new snowflake die from The Cat’s Pajamas.  I saw so many of these wonderful flakes during their recent release and just couldn’t resist it's fabulous shape :)  I also have some ribbon texture and, of course, a button and some bling :)  This card is going to my dear teaching partner who has had to answer a ka-zillion questions since I came on staff :)  I hope she likes pink because I was in a pink and white mood tonight.  Like the “Dec 25 2010?”  That’s just a plain old date stamp…$5.00!!! LOL  Hope you are having a fabulous week!!! Thanks for stopping by :)

Seriously gorgeous snowflake on this beauty, Diva! So super sweet and sparkly - I'd let you ask me questions all day long if it means that I get your wonderful creations!

OK this is it! Is that a real library card or a stamp? I just love that snowflake,...but then again I love all snowflakes and snowmen which is interesting as I do not like snow! LOL- my son will be home on thursday and i can't wait.
