Busy Busy Busy

I have been so busy that I have totally neglected my blog!! Thank you to the few of you that are still hanging around, it means the world to me!! I have been working non-stop trying to get my Christmas cards done, and I am happy to report that all but 3 of them are signed, sealed, and postmarked...yayy me!! I feel so cheesy sending out Christmas cards the day before Christmas, but I am relieved to see that some of my favorite stampers are in the same spot...makes me feel a tiny bit better, LOL!! I also have to apologize to my Pretties...I am way behind on this weeks challenge and my regular posting day, but I hope to make it up tomorrow, I am just too pooped to stamp tonight!! What a whirlwind the last two days have been!! Besides the normal hustle and bustle, and all the holiday preparations, my poor little nephew came down with a nasty cold. Poor kid was miserable yesterday, which means I got less than nothing done all day. I was totally exhausted when he left, but stayed up until 3am working on Christmas cards(which you will see in a minute). After 3 very short hours of sleep, I had to go to work. When I got outside, my car started, but the wheel wouldn't turn...ACCKKKK!! Since I was already running late, I ran inside and stole the keys to my husbands truck...hehe!! Come to find out, some belt came off and my DH'sUncle had to put it back on for me...but man was I stressing!!! So, needless to say, I am exhausted, but I wanted to post the card that I made(actually 25 of them) last night until 3am. I started with the Verve Stamps set, Ornamental Christmas. I stamped the image with Silver Encore ink on Whisper White. The DP is by Heidi Grace, and I used my Circle Nestabilities to cut it out. The white and Not Quite Navy layers were cut out with my new Label One dies. The base is PTI white(cause it is so thick it makes an amazing card base), then NQN and Whisper White again. This card was pretty basic, but I spent FOREVER cutting and embossing at my Cuttlebug.

Well, that is it for me tonight!! Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!! Be safe and God bless!!
