4 more days....

Here is a card I made last week that had not made it to my blog!  Easy Peasy!  I ran the kraft panel through my CB with the swiss dots embossing folder.  I then scraped my white ink pad across the raised dots.  The felt tree is from a pack that I bought at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas craft aisle.  Every year they have had different felt shapes.  I have snowflakes and stars from years past.  LOVE them and they are SUPER CHEAP!  I stamped my sentiment in black and tied some May Arts black burlap string around.  The sentiment is from an old MFT set (i think the one with the penguins?).

I went shopping yesterday with one of my neighbors and bought myself a new wardrobe! Yep!  Spent every dime on ME! LOL!  My winter wardrobe needed some updating so it was my little treat for being so organized this year with Christmas.  I bought some super cute sweaters, jeans and purse from Dress Barn and some cutie shirts from Anne Taylor LOFT.  I was looking for some trendy boots, but couldn't find the style I wanted.  They are WAY picked over.  May have to search on-line for the type I want!  I did pick up some more stocking stuffer gifts for the boys stockings! Couldn't resist!

I am hoping and praying that everyone is healthy for Christmas.  My fingers are crossed!  We have had an unhealthy kind of fall around here, so I am hoping that it is all behind us for the holidays.  Planning on doing some cleaning and a little baking today, but also hoping to get some stamping time in!  I am itching to make some cards that aren't Christmas or winter related! Hee, hee, hee!

Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations on your new wardrobe! You have earned it with your well organized preparation for holidays!

Me, I still have 24 scrapbook pages to make (out of 88 so I have made progress), cookies to make, gifts to buy and wrap, and one train-wreck of a house to clean! Yikes! I need to get crackin'!!
