Merry Christmas!

Hello to all my cyberspace friends!

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas! I have been busy over the past couple weeks prepping for my first sit down family dinner of 20. I am so excited to report it was a smashing success! Here are some pictures from our incredible time together!



The spread!  Not too shabby eh?  I wanted to make it very inviting!

 
 The Feast! Prime rib, mashed potatoes, green and yellow beans with carrots!  But one of the best parts of dinner is dessert,  apple pie, sundae bar, homemade peanut butter balls and shortbread!! Yummy!




The only thing better than the meal of course was the company!! My sisters and I and their families!!

Merry Christmas everyone from our family to yours!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheeky Santa!

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to start by saying thanks to everyone for being patient with me over the past week as I have been MIA in my Design Team threads because of the hussle bussle of the season. I have been very busy cleaning and prepping my house for my family Christmas dinner for 20 that we had yesterday. For many of you out there, that have been doing this for years, have it down to a science. For me, it is the first time so I was very nervous and excited all at the same time!  It was a smashing success and it's over and with very little left to clean up so I can finally relax!  Hoping to maybe get some craft time today!

Now on to this weeks' Friday challenge over at the Outlawz in the Copic Challenge Group!  The theme this week is "Bah Humbug"  So for me it was a a difficult one because I love Christmas so much!!  Having said that, here is my card!!



 When I saw this Santa, he was still pretty Jolly but I loved the cheeky sentiment!! This image is by Make it Crafty!!


Our sponsor for the month of December this month is Torico of  Birdie Brown Digital Stamps! Torico has lots of adorable digis in her Etsy shop here You should also check out the Birdie Brown blog here.

No One Like You!

Hi Friends,

I have finally turned the corner this morning after being down with a fever for the past couple of days!! Hurray, I feel like I can actually get something accomplished!!  Which leads me to a new and exciting challenge over at the Outlawz!  Come join me in making a card Inspired by Nature ( fire, water, earth, air ).  There is so much to choose from so I know it's one that all can play in!  Here is my card for a little inspiration!

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Cards for Men - Go Digital 
Creative Craft Challenges 2 - For Men 
Sweet Stamps - For the Guys 
Hooked on Craft - Cards for Men 
Scrapping Everyday Miracles - For a Special Guy 

 This hottie is by this month's sponsor Kenny K!  You can find his awesome talent here!   I love the attitude!  I added a heavy dose of glossy accents to the hat, drill and caution tape but my ott lite pooped out so the picture doesn't show it very well!  I can't wait to see how nature inspires you!!  Be sure to stop by our   Copic Challenge Group!  

Thanks for stopping by!!

One Week Down!

Hi Everyone,

Well the first week of school is over and I feel like I have never done this before! It's amazing how a relaxing summer will make your school routines seem difficult!  I'm still feeling like a fish out of water but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it in no time!  Here's a picture of their first day!


Aren't they so cute!  They picked out their own clothes this year and still want the same things but in different colours!   I love when they match!  They really put so much joy in my life!!  I am blessed !!

Thanks for sharing this moment with me!
