Laughing all the way....

So yesterday we went to the tree farm to get our tree. We decided that since it was going to snow today and be much colder, it would be better to just get 'er over with it. So we travel 45 minutes into Michigan, all the while being asked "is it much farther now????". Then we get there and this is what the ground looks like EVERYWHERE:
In case you were wondering, YES! It is mud and lots and lots of mud. Well this poses a bit of a challenge for those of us (ok, ME) who HATE HATE HATE to get dirty. Ok, so fast forward past that bit of drama....
We got our tree, and that is truly all that matters...
In case you are wondering, the stars were actually some neato creative light effect mode I used with my camera. Cool eh?
All of this Christmas stuff put me in the mood to knock out a couple of card challenges. One challenge was to create a mini card, no bigger than a 4x4 over at Card*a*licious. This is what I came up with:
Then, I couldn't resist sketch #72 I found in my mailbox from Sketches! {by tamara} Here is my take on that one:

December's Kit Reveal!!

It is reveal time at Paper Popsicles for the December kits and I must say WOW! These kits are absolutely FABULOUS! There is definitely way more than I would normally expect from a kit company. The mini kit is what I designed with, "Home Sweet Home". This kit is GYNORMOUS and well worth the $12.50! Here are some things I made with this "mini kit":

Card*a*lcious #6

Don't know how i am doing it but I was able to get another card done to go along with the challenges at Card*a*licious. The designers sure have it going on! This week the challenge was to use 3 circles on your card. I decided to get out my transparency and dry emboss the front and use circles as ornaments on the front. The printed paper and the rubon are on the inside.

Card*a*licious #4

This blog has really gotten my card mojo revved up! This week's challenge was to create a card "giving thanks". Here is what I came up with:
I used just some miscellaneous scraps of paper, an old Fancy Pants fun little transparency, and my cricut. Very simple but it turned out all right! TFL!

Card*a*licious #3

I have been trying so hard to break out of the mold and visit and participate in other sites. This has been very challenging given my devotion and LOVE for Paper Popsicles, my full time work schedule, and my 3 little ones. But I must say that this new card blog, Card*a*licious has been a delight. I am so glad that one of my PP design team members, Jackie, told me about it. This week's challenge was to do a shape card that was not a rectangle or a square. I decided to use one of Paper Popsicles' own shape cards:Thank you so much for looking this week!
