Merry Christmas! (CPS 147)

The last minute holiday rush is officially HERE!!!! I am scrambling like a mad woman to finish printing out the calendars I make every year, and HOPEFULLY get them in the mail on Tuesday. (This might be cutting it close, but they are late every year, so I am feeling pretty good about then getting in the MAIL before Christmas!!)

I have never had much luck with circle shaped cards, but I LOVE this card, I must admit!!! It just came together so perfectly. The trees are tags I got on clearance at WalMart a few years ago, the sentiment is a sticker from Cloud 9, (also been hanging around for ages) and the paper is flocked paper from Doodlebug Designs. To create my scalloped circle, I actually took a little circle diecut and traced it all the way around a giant circle (I think I used a coffee can or something to trace the big circle.) Lots of wingin' it, but it all came together! Love it when that happens!

Okay - back to scramble around. I have one baby sleeping, one husband sleeping, and one preschooler watching TV. . .now is my time to get as much done as I possibly can, before the chaos begins again!!! (Please tell me that all of you are as crazed as I am?!!! It's crazed in a good way, but crazed none the less!!) I'll be back when I can!!!

Laura,
I am right there with you... Except over here, not one gift has been sent and not one cookie made!!! I've been working every single day... and will work everyday up 'til Christmas.. well, I did have last Sunday off... and got to house clean and do other 'fun' stuff. Our tree is up, and it has lights on it and a few ornaments... It's that bad! Everyone keeps waiting for me to do everything so I guess they will have to wait until Christmas Day!

BTW - I also do calendar gifts, but the way 'life' has been.. they will be arriving around the Epiphany...

Hang in there!
