How's life? I've been a bit busy this week. I can't believe it is already almost Friday!! This week really went by fast and next week is Thanksgiving!! Pretty soon it will be Christmas. This year will be over before we know it.
I do have a layout to share with you. I made this layout for Fia's November Get Sketchy Challenge at Sketches4all. She offered a sketch for us to use and the requirement was to use the them "Christmas". I like how it turned out and it was great to do a project just for fun.

I really had so much fun working with all the fabulous bits and pieces in my Gingerbread Land kit! As soon as I saw it I knew I would be making a card with that adorable gingerbread house on it. I'm currently obsessed with Pulley Slider Cards so thought this would be a fun card to make for a kid. I went a little crazy with the glitter and Stickles but what can I say??!! lol If you are interested in learning how to make a Pulley Slider Card you can go check out the tutorial I put together over at Sketches4all.
My next card was an easy decision because I think Easel cards are fun too and I bet a kid will be happy to get one. I used the sweet gingerbread boy and girl on this card. I used a lot of Stickles on this one too but that is just how I roll!! LOL
I hope you enjoyed both of my cards and I sure hope they are welcomed at St. Judes. Thanks for hopping by my blog and checking out my projects. Now hop on over to Jessica's blog. Have fun!!
