A balmy Saturday

Crazy Wisconsin weather ~~ can you believe after all the snow & freezing temps we've had the last few weeks ~~ it is now 52 degrees?!?!??? And it's only 9 in the morning!! It's not supposed to get *much* warmer ~~ I think 55 is the high for today ~~ but how unreal is that? So NOW I can see patches of grass in our yard. Believe me, if we had no more snow for the rest of the winter I'd be fine with that!

Well, I finally had time to make a Christmas card!!!! What??? You mean Christmas is over?? Drat!!! Well, I guess I'm getting a jump on next year's cards!!


There were just so many Christmas stamps I didn't even get to use, including this cutie from High Hopes, Santa's Helper. I've always loved this stamp & finally ordered it from Tina. I didn't have time to use him before Xmas, so here he is now!! He's colored with Prismas & gamsol & has Stickles on his hat. Used lots of Basic Grey Wassail & SU's Cranberry Crisp, & my Nesties for the layers. The white layer behind the BG is Bazzill Bling, & I also punched a flower from that & sponged the edges with CC. The glass of milk is embossed with clear EP, I couldn't quite capture that in the photo. Added a Prima & a sparkly snowflake in the center, some pseudo Dew Drops & I was done ~~ my first Christmas card for 2009 :)



I also made a Hanglar card last night that I will share tomorrow. Yep, I made 2 cards IN ONE DAY!!! See how much I get done when hubby goes fishing? LOL!! Today I'm taking Matthew bowling with the Cub Scouts, then on to basketball. Grocery shopping on the way home, & oh how I hope I can scrounge up some leftovers because by that time I'll be too tired to cook!! Have a great Saturday, I know it will be nice for us not to have to put on layers of clothes before heading out today!!!!

OMG that mouse is adorable. Love the way you did the glass and his little Santa suit. Only thing bad is that it made me want a cookie and I can't have one cause I'm on a diet! LOL
