Merry and Bright

Quick post here!  What a crazy busy week this has been.  We are in middle of some kitchen remodeling.  Although it is not a MAJOR remodel, it is enough to throw me out of the kitchen!  I had planned a vacation day on Friday to do some baking and then realized on Monday I wouldn't be able to be in my kitchen!   I had some cookie dough from the previous Saturday's baking day in the freezer that I needed to bake up for this weekend.  Thank goodness my husband's office has a really nice kitchen I could use!  I loaded up my baking sheets, parchment paper and frozen pre-made cookie dough and headed for my 2nd kitchen to bake!  I made good use of my time prepping for an upcoming club night while the cookies were in the oven.

I've been itching to get another card made before the weekend so I sneaked into my craft room this morning before heading out to KY for some early family Christmas celebration.  Here is my quick card I created using the colors from Pals Paper Arts.  I love using non-traditional colors for Christmas.  Especially when it involves pink and green!

I used the stamp set from the Frosted Cardmaking Workshop On the Go for this card.  The sparkles are exclusive to that kit.   My colors are Hollyhock and Topiary.  The banner on the card was stamped to give it a pattern look.


Thanks for stopping by!!   I've got an even busier week coming up this next so looks like I'll be trying to find some crafting time here and there when I can!
