From T-giving to Christmas!

And it's here ......... holiday season! 
We managed to get through Thanksgiving with wonderful memories,
good food and family and visitors.
Now here we are - Christmas!
Our tree is up, the house is fully decorated inside and out,
and the Christmas baking, wrapping, planning, etc is under full swing.
This hilarious birdbrain,
 rushing about dropping things as he goes,
 is literally ME!  
In fact, this card challenge at
From the Heart Stamps closes in about an hour - 
talk about 'last minute rush!'
For the first time ever, I actually completed a card while sitting in a 
school auditorium.  I only got a few odd looks ~ overall, it was a success - LOL!

Following the weekly sketch #129, and flipping it sideways, 
 I quickly put together this card 
using the stamp of the month "Deck the Halls".

I hope to catch up and will be by your blogs very soon :)

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  2. Well, my tree isn't up and nothing is decorated - but yes, Christmas will be here before we know it now.
    LOL! I have to agree Kelly - this is you!! Of course I love the fun image but your background paper is great for this little guy and love your take on the sketch too!
