~Coming Tomorrow~

12 days


And here's a festive picture of my Christmas Tree! I got it all done tonight :)

I have a confession.....

I am a little obsessive about my tree...no one else is allowed to put ornaments on it but me and then pretty much until we take it down I'll move the ornaments around to make them just right...it's tiring actually and I'm trying to relax about it a little this year...we'll see!

See you tomorrow!!!

Unity Thursday's are *Simply Magical*

Simply Magical because that is the name of the November Kit of the Month which I've used today!

Be sure to check out the Unity Stamp Co. blog before you do anything else! There will be lots of IMPORTANT info for you there...oh about the fabulous sales for today and a list of the Design Team members playing along!

I made what could be a Valentine's Day card for y'all today! I skipped right over Christmas and I'm moving on, lol...well since I haven't made any Christmas cards to mail out, I probably will go back to Christmas at some point but for now let's move on...and I needed something cheerful and pink today!

I used this weeks SCS Sketch Challenge for my card:

The paper I used is from this months Scrapbooking Collage Kit! Isn't it FABULOUS?!! It's so sweet and perfect for everything!

Now check out my fellow Design Team members (names listed to the right>>) and check out all the Unity sales and have a GREAT day!!!


Oh, see you tomorrow for Friday Fun and Friends With Flair and some Blog Candy from ME!

Friday Fun #56 and Friends With Flair!

Howdy peeps!!!

Hope you are having a great Friday so far and I'm glad you are sharing part of it with me!

Today is Friends With Flair Friday and Friday Fun Challenge Day!

You can check out all the Friends With Flair blogs HERE!

This weeks Friday Fun challenge is the 1st of November which means we have a new hostess and that is our new girl Christi! She challenged us and YOU to make a card with a "woodland creature" on it.

I had all intentions of breaking out my Autumn Pals stamp set last night but have no idea where it is {I am so sad about this}! I searched and searched until it was so late I had to just make something and make it quick so I went with a bird...that lives in the "woodlands" and I even put "wood" on my card...pretty SMART, huh!?!


So here it is:

I used the birdie from the bigger Giggle Grove (she's not around anymore but you can get her little sister in Tiny Giggle Grove), the sentiment from Simple Blessings and Grainy Background.

Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun Girls blogs for more inspiration. We would love for you to play with us- just use keyword FFC56 when uploading to your SCS gallery.
