Late night babbling

I think the weeks must get longer as you get closer to Christmas - I'm counting it down now, 8 working days till I get 11 straight days off. Heaven! I still don't know about the new job, I got a second interview, and now it's a 50-50 tossup. I hope they let me know before Christmas, cause I don't want to spend my 11 days wondering...
See, I'm babbling! I thought I'd squeeze one more card in, but that means that this posting may not make much sense as it's now 11:15 and I've been up since 5:30am. I used a new set from CTMH, (well, new to me, since it's actually retired!) and then found this cute skating paper from Sandylion. The sketch is Unscripted, the colour are SPCC and I added some glitter for Pile it On. They're having a DT call, so I've got my fingers crossed as I'd love to be on a DT. Mind you, I think I glittered both submsissions the same way, good thing I've got another week or 2!

The aliens are coming!

When I saw the sketch from CPS, I thought of outer space, (who wouldn't?) so I found a cute digital stamp from Doodle Dragon, and made a simple, fun card. With 2 little boys who manage to get invited to a lot of parties, it's important to have "boy" cards available at short notice. This is super easy, but fun! The colours are from the Shoe.
I've also posted a simple layout of my little guys 4th birthday - sorry for the glare, I have to work out a better way to take pictures inside. I've been propping cards on the BBQ all summer, but we've had 20+ cm of snow here today, that's out of the question! I am going to try and post more layouts, I do manage to make more than cards sometimes!
Anyway, off to shovel snow, since DH broke his finger, he conveniently can't shovel. Darn!

A Purple Christmas

I'm not sure what's more purple, my card for SPCC or my husband's finger! He fell off the ladder while putting up Christmas light yesterday, only 2 rungs thank goodness, but busted up his finger. He's not quite ready to see the funny side of it yet, but I find the giant splint on his finger quite amusing!
I wasn't sure about the SPCC colours, violet and red? Ended up doing another Christmas card, I have amassed quite a collection, which will be good when I need one at the last minute. The sketch is from JUGS, and both Pile it On and Stamp Something were looking for bling. I am well aquainted with the bling, I glittered all my Christmas cards on Sunday and wow, I'll be sweeping up glitter for a long time I think! Ps, the dragon is from Doodledragon Designs, my fave!
Speaking of my Chrismas cards, here they are! I used Jingle Creative Basics paper from CTMH, a bunch of CTMH Christmas stamps and several Martha punches, love em! All ready to address and mail out, ugh. Doesn't matter whether you buy them or make them, you still have to write something in them!
(Have to get credit to Laurel Seabrook, Bren Yule and another fabulous CTMH consultant whose name I forgot to write they, they provided the inspiration for my cards!

Hey all my sadly neglected blog friends! Whew, November is over and I can relax and be zen. Well, maybe not zen, but I can at least downgrade from frantic to my everyday crazyness! I'm still waiting to hear about the new job, they're doing another interview on Monday so I won't find out for awhile. Que sera sera, there's nothing I can do about it but relax, right?
I'm looking forward to Christmas and decorating - I'm just about done all my cards, I'll post them soon. Went scrapping last night with my girlfriends and got a couple pages started and a card done - I think I managed to make 5 challenges with this one!
The sketch is Unscripted, the colours are from the Colour Chef, the Cuttlebug Spot has a winter theme, Crazy 4 Challenges is doing punches and Cooking with Katie has a recipe that includes red, brads and three of something. I think one of my white snowflakes fell off, cause I did have 3 I swear! Paper is Just Chillin' and the stamp sets are Holiday Jingle and Snow friends from CTMH.
See you soon! (I promise!)
