Peace for December Day #19

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".  

I love to celebrate Fridays with the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #123.   This week we're using the newest holiday paper from CTMH - Yuletide Carol.   I think the music background  paper is my favorite.  My card is inspired from Sketch Saturday #340.  

This weekend is "Wrap Weekend" as I have to get all the presents wrapped and under the tree... LOL!

December Day #18 with Flakey Friends

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.

Memories for December Day #17

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.

Ho! Ho! Ho! for December Day #16

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!

Scrappin' Weekend Inspiration

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.

I also finished up challenge page for Sketch and Scrap Challenge #12.  I also played along with 1-2-3- Get Scrappy December Challenge #17.  I used the squares - Dog, 2 stencils, Chipboard Flower.  I really like those kind of challenges because it inspires me to get in my stash and be creative.  Love the result for my DS 22nd Bday pictures

Skating In for December Day #15

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.

Laughter on December Day #14

While I love the scene on this card, I'm SO HAPPY there's no snow!   I have to travel this week for work and it's much easier without the white stuff!  

This weekend it's VSN (Virtual Scrap Nights) over at SCS and this is my card for the "Melting" challenge.  I used MOJO Monday #375.  

Hope you found time to stamp or scrap this weekend!   It's always good when you can,

Living, Loving, Laughing 4 Life

I've Arrived!

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!

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.
