Yipes, what a day I had yesterday. My son had a MD appointment 30 miles from home and the rain turned to snow as we were leaving. Getting there wasn't so bad, but coming home, my windshield wipers were collecting ice and I couldn't see. As luck would have it, at one point we had to stop to wait for a train and I had time to pop out of the car and de-ice. Driving in the stuff wasn't bad, but not being able to see was a bit of a challenge. Guess I need to get to the auto supply store for some new winter wipers!

HUGE Project Completed!
My stamping world has revolved around completing a holiday card order and yesterday the 200 cards were delivered (in the snow). I included a goodie bag of items made for my vendor fair. Before heading out on my delivery, I made a quick tea light lantern using our vellum card stock embossed with snowflakes to add to the bag. I had one working tea light left in my stash and found, when I turned it on, that it changes colors - how fun! I was in such a rush to get out the door that I didn't get a photo of it - boo! Here are my cards, ready to go. 400 stamped trees, 600 punched trees, 1,000 rhinestones, 200 bows, 200 fussy cut cardinals and I don't have any idea how many Dimensionals. You're likely thinking, "Is this woman crazy?". I make these for a friend of mine and this year let him shop on my Pinterest page. Next year I need to limit the choices! They were fun to make and as I'm not working right now the project was doable.
One other project I managed to sneak in was the PPA challenge for this week. This is a quick, easy layout that came together in a snap using Flowerpot DSP. I cropped the sentiment from Happy Hour with the Decorative Label punch, added a few candy dots and I was good to go!
Goodness, so much going on. I also started working on my Christmas cards; I'm using the Ornamental Pine set and CASEd a beautiful card that I'll share with you when it's completed.
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post.
