*I Just Realized....*

... just far behind in Christmas preparations I am!!  It's November 13th already!!

I have bought one Christmas present and have approximately 30 Christmas cards made.  I send out about 100 cards every year.....

And in the coming weeks I have a trip to Ontario to plan for and to take (including a chance to work on Christmas cards at a crop, I hope!), the Purdy's fundraiser for Alex's school band to enter into the computer and consolidate all payments, shop for presents, shop for our Cruise....

I sure hope it all gets done!

I probably should have done something today after preparing for the party we're hosting tonight (like maybe take the boyz shopping for clothes for cruise dinners) instead of sitting on my ass instead....



Oh well... going to try to not stress too much about it and just see what happens!

On to the card... I love these new Nestabilities...  I think that the Beaded Circles look a lot like snowballs when done in white!
Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White; Bazzill
*Images:  Hero Arts Holiday Tags
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
*Tools:  Big Shot; Spellbinders Beaded Circles Nestabilities
*Embellishments:  unknown ribbon; unknown brad
*Challenges:  FTL108

I just wish that the regular Nestability dies could cut larger for creating circle or scalloped cards...  I think Shannon is ordering the Grand Calibur that will be able to cut a full 8.5 inches wide as well as some of the dies....  I think I'll be visiting once she gets it!

Hmmmm, maybe I should put it on my Christmas wish list!


Enjoy your Saturday folks....  Jimmy (our new Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker) has invited some of our friends over tonight for margaritas (and other frozen concoctions)!

Love, love, love this one! I too am way behind. I did some online shopping today, but my Christmas cards? Not too sure they will get done this year or not. We will have to wait and see.

Nice card, Nancy! We love our Margaritaville....we use it everyday for smoothies (finally got Madisen to stop inviting friends for margarita and invite them for smoothies instead)

Gorgeous! Want that die...did I pre-order it and just don't remember? Maybe not! Good luck with your Christmas prep!

1. Lots of time for cruise shopping--we can even do some while you are here if need be.

2. Love the card!

3. Didn't get my invite for the margaritta party. :( LOL

Definately something for the old Xmas list! Your card is so pretty and I love how it does look like snowballs. I am sure you will get everything done, you somehow pull it all off.
