Happy New Year's is just around the corner!

Well with Christmas over that can only mean that New Years is just around the corner and here is a card that I thought would work out great for the holiday.

I am submitting it for    This Magnolia image is one of my all time favorites.  I used my cricut and scal to cut out a bottle shaped card.  I hope you like it. 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Day at my house is great!   We celebrate with hubby's fam b/f Christmas and Christmas Eve with my family.  Then on Christmas Day is ours to do as we please.  We start with our traditional breakfast cassarole, then we be lazy for the afternoon squeeze in a nap then a great meal of Rib Roast, twice baked sweet potatoes and greenbeens.  Now we are squeezing in some Wii Family time.  Who could ask for more!?

I was able to squeeze out a couple of challenges this week that I had not posted yet so here they are:

The image is from sewmany cards isn't he cute I am submitting him for a design challenge for and thought this image would make a cute note holder.

Aww Young Love

I am following a sketch challenge for Instyle stamps at , and also for where the only rules were no winter or holidays allowed, I say Yes I am so ready for anything but the holidays and winter.

Happy Sunday!

Hi all, I hope everyone is doing ok.  I have to say I am so so happy that last week has ended,  it was a rough week!  My only highlight was Tues stamping with some friends.    I have been cleaning all day b/c hubby aquired me a great desk set that his work was getting rid off.  It is cherry and includes the desk, rtn, bookcase and the lateral file.  It feels so good to be able to spread my stuff out organize it.   Also a great time to purge.

I was able to do a challenge this weekend for several challenges listed below: (inspiration for the color) pink, green and natural. requesting a card with snowflakes or snowman  requesting snowman also

and finally for the great sketch.

Well I hope everyone myself included has a great week, I am going to finish up my Christmas shopping tomm and my Dtr comes home from college for her winter break.  It will be nice having her home again for more than just a few days.
