I have been working on Christmas cards, really I have. Just wanted to wait to post them till after my friends in the Cities had time to make them. Didn't want them to have a sneak peek of what was coming up for them on our Black Friday stamping weekend. Yes, that's what I said, we all stamped on Black Friday and Saturday! My friends Lyndsay and Theresa came up with some really fantastic projects for us to make along with the cards I designed. I can't forget to mention Karen who was content to make stuff and eat pizza. This is the first of the cards I brought. The holiday lights were made using a Fiskars punch and doodlebug sugared paper. So easy to punch and stick, although the top of the light did give us some trouble. The sentiment is one of A Muse's new cling stamps. It is the perfect size and shape for a gift tag. Think I will use it for one of mine. I digress... Anyway, I made my own ornament using the nestabilities big scallop circles set. This might be my new favorite nestie set!!! A little A Muse dotted ribbon at the top and the card is complete. Stay tuned for 2 more of the cards I made for our little get together.

Hey, everyone, Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you all have a little time set aside to be thankful of the good things in your life. It is nice to have a day to sit back and reflect on all the special people that bring you joy. I am very lucky to have a wonderful family and my friends are the best! My husband makes me happy every day, well, almost every day. :) I am blessed.
