Season's Greetings

Hello my friends! I hope your Thanksgiving (for those of you that celebrated) was amazing. I had to take some time off as I cook for about 30. Lots of work, but goodness so much fun. I LOVE it!

Speaking of loving things, Christmas is seriously just around the corner. I'm so excited, it'll be Sophie's 4th Christmas and I'm hoping it'll be one she remembers! I've decided to start a new tradition since we love to read so much. Starting on the 12th we are going to count down the 12 days until Christmas with a holiday book. So each night we will open and read a holiday/winter themed book. Hopefully she'll be just as excited as I am!

On to the card....i am in love with this little sweetie. I cut the card from Kraft cardstock and used a shimmery green snowflakes patterned cardstock as the backdrop. The little birdie and cage came from the April Showers Cricut cartridge.

The sentiment came from My Pink Stamper.  A little red and white twine bow and some rhinestones for bling, oh and a little faux stitching around the edges and that about does it for this one. 

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes and the Inspired by Stamping #37 photo challenge. Isn't the inspiration gorgeous?!

Thanks for stopping by and not giving up on me! With the holidays coming I don't know how much I'll be around, but I do my best to stay in touch with posts and comments!

Thankful for...

Hello friends!

I have so much to be thankful for. I am extremely thankful I have an amazingly loving husband and beautiful baby girl. I am thankful that I have friends who think of me, including some I've never met (wink, wink Colleen). I am thankful for all the big and little things in my life and I am so thankful that my little Sophie is almost potty trained. LOL yes, that's some of what I've been doing.

I made these for my friend Rosy. I am thankful that we have been friends for over 20 years! Since the 7th grade. She wanted them for her employees to thank them for all their hard work. She is seriously one of the sweetest people I know.

Thank you for stopping by my little blog and following (if you do). I am thankful for all the kind comments and thoughs you leave me.

What are you thankful for?
