Sending a Big Thank You

Hello!

Gosh it's Saturday, I think....
Is it just me or do you always think that the day after Christmas is a Sunday? LOL!
Mid-week holidays always throw a monkey wrench into my week!

Lately all my days have just run into one another....lol
Here is another thank you card I created for a co-worker using the Mojo sketch below.
Sentiment is from PTI and image and die are from MFT's Splendid Sunflower.

You Made My Day - MFT sketch #156

Hello :)

Hope you and your family enjoyed Christmas day together!

I was lucky enough to spend a little bit in my craft room after dinner :)
I wanted to make some quick thank you cards for a couple of my Assistant Managers that bought me birthday and Christmas gifts.

This was the MFT sketch for this week....
Brian gave me a new camera for Christmas as my old Canon Rebel finally bit the dust after several years.
Now to learn how to use this Nikon....but for the first time using it, I think it took a pretty good picture of my card :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Warm Winter Wishes - MFT Sketch #155

Good Morning!

Only a few more sleeps until Christmas!
Thank goodness....lol

On Thursday before heading to work the late shift I played along with the MFT sketch.
I just adore this sweet little PI Happy Christmas. The sentiment comes from the PI Holiday Hugs Snowman.

Thanks for Everything - DS131

Ready for  another edition of Deconstructed Sketch!
Check out this week :)

Once again I've gone ultra simple as time has definitely not been on my side lately.
Gosh we haven't even decorated our tree!
I'm not too fond of creating shaped cards. Mostly because they cost more to mail. Geez starting next year it's going to cost $1 for a stamp in Canada!!!

Welcome Sweet Baby

Hello :)

Well we are in the home stretch now for Christmas!
This year has been super busy for me.
No presents bought, no tree up, no decorating inside or out :(
With only a week and a half until the big day I fear nothing will get done.
Working retail sucks the life out of you sometimes....lol

Breaking away from holiday cards I was pleased to make a baby card for one of my supervisors and his wife. They recently celebrated the birth of their daughter in November.
I made a diaper cake to go with this but never snapped a photo of it...sorry!
Thanks for stopping by!

Check out this week :)
I'm wrapping up my Christmas cards....finally!
Now to sit down and address them. It's always good to have a few extras on hand in case you run into someone that you weren't expecting to see ;)
Holiday Hugs Snowman was a fave of my last year and it's always fun to use well loved stamps when you can!

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas - SSSC199

Hello :)

Today I'm a little late to the Sweet Sunday Sketch party.....sorry!

I've worked every day this week and had no free crafty time :(  Makes me sad!

Only a few more weeks of this craziness until the holidays are over and I'll have plenty of time to sneak into my craft room!! I cannot wait!

This week there is a fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch for you. Check it out!
As much as I love to colour with my copics I didn't have the energy or patience to sit at my table for too long. 
Instead I went with a sentiment from the Grand Holiday Greetings from MFT.

This World...

Hello :)

Work has been crazy the past few days and it's only going to get busier with the holidays fast approaching!
It's all good though.
Downside is that I am exhausted when I get home from work and don't have the creative energy to stamp :(

Here is a card I created using some MFT stamps and the emboss resist technique.

This time I used some PTI dies and stamps to create my card.

You Are Never Too Old To Be A Rockstar

Hello!

Last week Jen from Reverse Confetti posted a new Color Challenge that runs for a couple of weeks. Being that I'm challenged with gray I decided I must play along ;)
The layout comes from the CAS(E) this Sketch #54.
For the horizontal element I stamped some dots from the Whole Lotta Dots and the sentiment was layered up using  Inner Rockstar.

Stamps: Inner Rockstar, Whole Lotta DotsPaper: White, Enchanted EveningInk: Midnight Muse, Pumpkin Pie, Going GrayAccessories: MFT die, Dimensionals
