TGIF! Especially this week because it means I only have 1 day left to work this year! I wish I had Monday off too but it just didn't work. I love time off at the holidays. It's good too because all the family is coming in this weekend ... truly "Home for the Holidays".
Thank goodness "Love Never Melts" right ... one of my favorite Christmas Carols is "Frosty the Snowman" and this sentiment made me think of that song. We haven't been making snowmen here because although it's December, it's been in the 50's. I do however like to make "snowmen" cards ... temperature doesn't matter! Yay! Ticking away to time off and holidays, it's all good!
This cute card was inspired by Retro Sketch #145. I always like their fun and fresh sketch ideas. The colors were inspired by a color challenge over at SCS during VSN (Virtual Scrap Nights) worked perfectly.
Today's card is inspired from CAS(E) Card Challenge #103. The VSN (Virtual Scrap Nights) Challenges over at SCS were this weekend and the challenge was to make a Sympathy Card with some sparkle. I actually needed one to send this week so this worked.
Holidays do remind us of lots of family memories, some with folks that have passed on. It's good to remember the fun we had while they were in our lives.

Jingle all the way! It's time to dig out some old CTMH Holiday papers and get a few more holiday cards made. The SCS VSN (Virtual Scrap Nights) inspiration was to use torn paper and it worked perfectly with the sketch over at Friday Sketch Challenge #84
I hope you are enjoying your countdown to Christmas!

It's another weekend of Fun Scrappin' here ... I actually got a lot of cards done as well. Very excited to share my completed pages with you ...
This is for the Let's Scrap Challenge 121014. For some reason, I knew as soon as I saw the sketch what pictures I wanted to scrap, I've moved them in my box several times now. Glad to have them scrapped and in my book, I had a terrific time at the visit to the Nature Center.
Woohoo....10 days, 10 days....I'm actually more on countdown for my Holiday Time off at this point, LOL! Not that I don't love Christmas with my family but I truly love that it comes with lots of days off to hang out at home.
This weekend it was VSN (Virtual Scrap Nights) over at SCS and the challenge was to use a stamp with "skates" or "skating". I had more choice of stamps than I realized but love this little elf on his candy cane skates, hahaha. I used Freshly Made Sketches #166 for this one.
In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.
We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!
The View from My Window
Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
I'm a 40-something year old woman who's learned that if you can't laugh and love through life, you're missing it! Since you only have one, it's better not to miss.
I work full-time & my family likes to think I scrap/stamp full time also! It's therapy and it's GOOD. I have 2 sons & I've been married to my DH for 20 years!
