♥ Christmas in may? ♥

good morning.  how was your weekend?  we had a great weekend with ALL the kids home (my eldest from college too, wahoo!) and i am home today with my youngest with a sore throat and fever...ugh.  my poor little man, his throat is so sore and it happens most times we travel up over the mountains (elevation change i suppose)  so i baked him some banana bread and soup's on the stove, i am prepared if he gets a little appetite.  while he rests, i thought i would pop in here and share some cards and challenges that i have been working on this week.

today, i have posted the newest CARD challenge on the Scraptastic Scrapbooking Kits forum today
the challenge?  it's a bit sketchy, you may want to check it out
(you can win a $5.00 Scrapastic Store Credit)

here's the card i created for the sketch using my MAY Destination Unknown Scrapbooking Kit

i hope you'll pop in over at the Scraptastic Forum to see the newest challenge and the inspiration and YES, post your cards♥

i am up today on the Jillibean Soup blog with a card using the new Fresh Vegetable Soup line 

hello friend card

i absolutely love the fonts and corrugated shapes and stickers in this new line♥


today i am also going to share some Christmas cards.  yes!  i am actually starting on them early this year.  every year we make a personal Christmas card for each one of hubby's staff members (60) as well as our friends and family, so this year, i am GOING to start early.  and to show you how determined i am, i created SIX Christmas cards this morning while my little one rested. (wish me luck....giggle)  i will share at least one of them each time i post, so hopefully you, too, will be inspired to create early this year.
