Getting Ready for Christmas

Wow! Can you believe how close we are to Christmas? I don't even want to count the days. It seems like right after Halloween it just comes so fast.


I love Christmas though, I love the looks on my daughters faces when I start pulling out all the decoration for inside and outside. We have little traditions in our home, making cookies, family tree decorating and driving the neighborhood looking at other homes beautifully decorated. Oooo...I'm all excited now! How long til Christmas? I can't wait! LOL!


I follow some amazing blogs and the cutest easel card was posted here. Iris' card was a Halloween card but I have to give this unique easel a try. It's a little tricky but worth it! I've had Sneaky Tilda and Tilda with gifts colored for about two weeks. I wanted so much to put them together on a card and had already matched them to the new Bo Bunny paper. I LOVE Bo Bunny paper. We finally have a new Scrapbook shoppe in town and she's carrying it! I'm so excited to have someone local now. Anyway back to Tilda, they remind me of my girls so I colored them with my daughters in mind. My oldest Bianca has dark brown hair and Lexy is a my crazy red head. I love the way this turned out! I hope you do too!

Challenges I'm entering:
Pollycraft Challenge: Anything Goes
Stamp Something: Punches,Dies
The Secret Crafter: Distress used to color images
Thanks for stopping by,
