It's a Snowflake kinda day!

Even in Miami, bwahaha!  This is the only kind of snowflake I will see here - the cardstock cuttlebugged kind! :)

Sooooo are you recovering from a fun night of Halloween festivities?  This was the first year dd15 went off with a group of friends in a  "theme" group of Alice and Wonderland - too, too cute!  DD was, naturally, Alice :)  They kept getting stopped for concersation and photo ops, lol!  I did manage to get one of my troop before they all scattered and yes, my kids are very mis-mashed this year being they were doing their own thing!  This photo cracked me up!!  They were in full drama mode and totally posed after taking their "mom-a-razi" required picture of the year ;) 

Breaking news!  Opera star attacked by zombie while Ninja Warrior turns Alice into Sushi! ;)
Never a dull moment at my house! :)-

And how about a card!  First, if you haven't stopped on over to Buttons and Bows, please do!  You can find the blog and become a follower here!  Kristy's buttons are all handmade, clear polymer buttons and I promise you, to see them IRL is absolutely joyful!  She has many sets to chose from for all occasions in her store!  And the DT are super creative and their cards and projects are simply genious - so many things to see, especially with the holidays coming up ..... which reminds me ......

52 more days til Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!  Are you ready? ;) (not me!)

I found this neat-o (I can't believe I just used that word!  eek!) template on SCS for a mini pocket style card which I turned into a card holder :)  You could easily change it up for the seasons and add anything from a gum to a packet of seeds to gift cards!  

Ready for an envie!  5" x 3.5" closed

Close up of the gorgeous button! (from the Harvest set)

Inside and open - enough room for a bookmark and Gift Card :)

I thought this was so cute - 1.5 years old and never stamped til now!
