Merry Christmas Banner!

I decided to make a Merry Christmas banner to hang in between my kitchen and living room. I used my Cricut to cut the letters and then I embellished them with buttons, stickers, etc. I admit, it could be a lot better but I have been so pressed for time lately. With my DH coming home for leave soon (hopefully next week), I have been trying to get so much done that I am just running out of time!! And since it is Christmas time, I wanted to do a few little extra, new things that we don't usually have decoration wise. I'm sure he'll love it, and he won't even realize that it could have been better!! lol =0)

A Birthday Card for My Daughter!

It saddens me to say that my baby will be 5 on the 20th. She is so excited, but me, well I am full of mixed emotions. Where does the time go, it seems just yesterday we were bringing this sweet baby girl home from the hospital. Now she is this little girl with a BIG personality. Truth be told she is 4 going on 16 rather than 4 going on 5. Nevertheless, we can't keep them little forever so I guess I will just have to get over it! =0( So anyway, she is having a My Little Pony birthday party and below is the card made her.





I found the pony image online, I colored it with my Creative Memories marker, papers are from my stash, the chipboard 5 is from SU!, the ink is Blush from CTMH and the sentiments are mine.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...


I just wanted to share my Christmas Tree!! Hobby Lobby had 50% off their Christmas decorations a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to do a new theme for my tree this year. Hubby is due home right around Christmas so I want to have everything PERFECT!! He's probably going to kill me for buying new decorations...I have too many as it is!! lol
