Sending a Big Thank You


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.
I added a couple of MFT flat bottom clouds cut out of felt and then a little itty bit of stardust stickles to the MFT Snow Drifts.
Thanks for stopping by!

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!!!
Ready to see what the rest of the Deconstructed Crew have created today?!!!

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!

Holly Jolly Christmas - DS130

Ready for  another edition of Deconstructed Sketch!
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.

Another quick and easy card from me! I love using dies on cards. They can make such a big impact as the poinsettia does here.

Celebrate Your Special Day - MFT sketch #152


Gosh feels like I haven't stamped in ages! It's been about a week! LOL!

This afternoon after waking for a small nap(I worked overnight) I decided to take a quick boo at the MFT sketch from last week.
Decided it was time to step away from holiday cards.....at least for today :)
PI Birthday Girl and sentiment is from Birthday Greetings
