Speaking of Christmas CC # 121

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone! Sorry I've been MIA Again!
I've been soooo busy at the store, trying to prepare for Black Friday!
This is my very first Black Friday as a store owner... so I'm trying to
get as much stuff out as possible for my customers.... we've actually
been really busy already and I'm thrilled with all the shopping going
on at my store... But with shopping goes a lot more work on my part...
We've been getting donations daily... and not 1 or 2 bags either... lots
and lots of them... So I'm trying really hard to keep up with that and
price & put out ALL my holiday stuff.... I bought new shelves to use
for the large amount of Christmas items I have.... Sooo... I've just been
a busy little bee! I'm actually going to have the next several days off, so
hopefully I'll have some free time to go visit all my blogging friends that
I've been neglecting! :o)
I'm sure you didn't come here to hear about my busy work life...
Today is CHALLENGE DAY over at:

Rock-a-bye baby....

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a
fabulous weekend! Mine was kind of boring.... I made 2 loaves
of bread and got my DT cards done and then I was suppose to
work on Christmas cards cuz I'm going to the crop til ya drop
this Friday... And well.... I just didn't make anything! NOTHING!!!
What the heck am I suppose to take with me to an all niter crop?
I started to work with my silhouette and then I was having trouble with
my mouse... or maybe it was me.... I kept clicking on something I wanted
to do then it would click to something else... I was like WHAT???
So after lots of frustration I said forget it... and I stopped... Then I realized
I was low on ink for my printer, so I couldn't design anything in
My digital Studio.... Remember I don't live in or near a big city, so I
can't just run to the store when I run out of something.... :o(
So today I'm off from work too and I just don't feel like making
anything... I guess I'm going to the crop to chat all night long....
Not that that's a bad thing either.... but I was really hoping to start
on some Christmas cards.... Oh well... maybe next year! LOL
I do have a card for ya today..... :o)
I created this card before I went on my trip....
I used My Digital Studio (from Stampin' Up)
 and my Cameo.... Added some Bakers Twine and
popped up the scallop & boat and there ya go.... :o)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an

Thank Ewe...

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all
had a wonderful weekend! Mine was busy with crafting
and baking.... I honestly don't know how the women back
in the day could stand to be in the kitchen ALL DAY LONG!
I do it every Sunday and man... it's EXHAUSTING! :o)
Well, today I have a card to show ya....

A friend of mine asked me to make her
some thank you cards. Her children give them 
out to the people who purchase their animals
during the county fair. She asked me
right before I was leaving on my trip...
So, this is what I created....

I made her some last year as well...
that card can be seen HERE!

She told me I could make the same 
card as last year, but I like to change it up
a little... I didn't change the sheep cuz
she told me she really likes this cut.... :o)

  Any way... Thanks for stopping by
& taking a look! :o)
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
