It's that time of year again...

Hello Everyone!

I trust you all had a great Thanksgiving (those here in the US) and a fabulous Black Friday with all of the shopping and sales going on. Lots and lots of good buys out there...not to mention Cyber Monday and shopping in the pjs with a nice that is my kind of shopping! No crowds, no pushing or shoving...just putting it in my cart and pushing the purchase button, oh my...and my bank account is proof of that! LOL

I've been pretty busy lately with making Thanksgiving cards and cooking and all of the fantastic stuff that goes along with that on to the next big one.....CHRISTMAS....woohoo!! I have the cards (most of them anyway - LOL) made and the music flowing through the house...can you hear it?!? Mmmmm, loving me some Bing Crosby, his voice flows like melted chocolate...and I L-O-V-E chocolate! Haven't taken the decorations out or bought a tree...I try to wait until December 1st to do that. And that, my friend, is this weekend!!!! Are you ready, huh...huh...are ya?

Okay, I have some projects that I've been working on that I can't share just yet, one is a Secret Santa gift for a friend on the That's Scrap Forum RAK list- so I will have to wait to share that one, because as soon as it's seen...those in the "exchange" will know exactly who it's for!!! LOL Buuutttttttt, I do have some pics of some of the cards I made this year for Christmas, so those I will share...forewarning...picture heavy!

 Sorry, didn't realize some of them weren't very clear!

Anything that was cut, paper wise, was done so using my Silver Bullet Professional that can be purchased  from Sherri at That's Scrap, Inc. A-W-E-S-O-M-E machine by the way!!!!! See those reindeer antlers??? Those are cardstock...YES cardstock, not regular paper!!! This is on an A2 card, so those are really thin and those teeth...hahaha, those are 110# cardstock by Georgia Pacific. They are about 1/16th inch wide and 1/8th inch long, and all of it was cut at V800 F105 on my Silver Bullet! Did I say it was an AWESOME machine, or what??

I have to give props to Pinterest for some of the ideas that lead to some of the cards. I just love Pinterest, it's like one stop shopping!!

Well, if you have lasted to the end of this post, I really appreciate you taking some time from your day and visiting with me. I hope you will stop by again real soon, and I will do my best to post again soon (not take a month or two off - I'm so sorry - really, I am - I've been busy and productive - just haven't posted).  

I wish you a blessed and creative day!
