Holiday Wishes

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm still pluggin' away at Christmas cards on my days off. It's helped a lot to have pre-colored a bunch of images over the last several weeks. It's all about the layouts now.

This little tree is from a TAC set called Santa Claus is Coming. The whole set reminds me of those chunky Fisher Price figurines that come with the school bus or airplane. I tried to make the ornaments look like traditional Christmas balls. Or is it bulbs? Anyway, I used a bit of crystal lacquer and it worked out pretty well. I have a few more tress I did in different colors so I have a few more images to play with. And who doesn't love a good ornament shaped nestie!

Thanks for looking today!

Dog gone cute!

Here's another layout with that same Christmas dog. I think he is so dog gone cute! I have to say I'm kinda lovin' how much I've done for Christmas so far. The tree is up and mostly decorated, I've made a dent in my shopping and even finished a batch of Chex Mix. Though I may have done that a little too soon. I think it will all be eaten before the festivities begin. I only make it during this time of year and I like to give some away to the mail man and paperboy. I still need to make some beer bread for the black Friday pot luck at work and finish my shopping for the out of state-ers so I can get that box shipped out. I even wrapped some gifts this morning! Yeah for me. Now that's progress! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and have much to be thankful for. I know I do!

I'm managing to make due with the broken Cuttlebug plate today. I colored a few of the trees a few weeks ago and knew I wanted to use them for some of my Christmas cards. Now I wish I had done a few more. I try not to do all the same cards, but I really like the way these turned out. That little nesty there in the back of the tree really makes it look complete. Three down and several more to go! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and thanks for looking.

Is it really November 17th??

I can't believe how quickly the Holidays are approaching, and how far behind I am on my Christmas cards. I was on a roll this morning until my Cuttlebug C plate snapped in half! UGH! Much to my surprise I could not buy one at Michaels or Joann. Grrr. So I came home and ordered one online. Thank goodness for online shopping. I hate to pay shipping, but what else can you do? I'm so lost without my Cuttlebug. So, for the next 7 to 10 days I'll have to use the broken pieces.

This little cutie was put together with My Minds Eye paper Angi gave me (Angi you're the BEST!) and the layout I got from PattiJ's blog. The image is one I picked up at the Scrapbook expo a couple of weeks ago. Isn't he cute?

Thanks for looking and I hope you are all caught up on your Holiday cards!

Rudoss the Red Nosed Reindeer

When my son was little he had a hard time pronouncing his F's. We have him on video tape singing Rudoss the Red Nosed Reindeer in the tub. We still call him Rudoss. I love this time of year and can't wait to put up the Christmas decorations. In between being super busy I'm working on Christmas cards. What have you been up to lately?
