*And So It Begins*

Let the festivities begin!

Our first holiday houseguest arrives tonight and we'll have two more trips to the airport early next week.  The kids are done school today (Matthew at noon and Alex at 3).  We had our first holiday party last night with another tomorrow night.

And a week from now Santa will have been and gone, presents will be open, turkey will be in the oven!

Is it just me or does time just fly??!!

Today you're going to get a little treat as I share two creations with you.... Why? you ask....  because I really really don't like the card I'm going to show you so I thought I'd better share something good too LOL!

I had a vision in my head for this card using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge...  I think I chose the wrong colours of cardstock for the card though...

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! glossy; Bazzill Bling; Coredinations
*Images:  Impression Obsession
*Ink:  Adirondak Inks (with Blending Solution); Memento Tuxedo Black

*Tools:  Big Shot; Nestabilities; Marvy Snowflake Punch; D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug embossing folder
*Embellishments:  Karen Foster brad

These are some tags I created for the two ladies I bowl with on Thursday afternoons.  I gave them to them yesterday.  Unfortunately, the one lady doesn't really do gifts so she wouldn't use them... so we gave both sets to the other lady.  I felt bad that I chose a little something that didn't work out... next year I'll have to do something different.

I used a variety of items on these tags...  I think my favourite is the white, pink and green one... I finally got to use my Hero Arts snowflake border stamp that I bought at Michaels (click on the photo to be able to see it better).

So... that's it for today!  I hope to craft a little today as I don't know when I'll get another chance....  and I don't wanna run out of items to post for you!

Happy week before Christmas!
