Letter to Santa

Hello! I must admit that I am a procrastinator. I usually put off things until they are almost due and then rush to get them done. Are you like that?? Or are you one of those people who are very scheduled?? I guess I just work better under pressure so I think it was a little odd for me to be trying to get all my projects done early. December is always such a busy month and I don't want my projects to be lacking. So I used the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to work on all those projects that are due in December. And you are getting to see one that I made without being under pressure.....well... what do you think? Better or worse than normal?? lol

I am obsessing over the Humphrey Christmas Stamp Sets so this card is made using the Humphrey Christmas Wishes Stamp Set. I just love, love, love how sweet it looks with him putting that letter to Santa in the mailbox. I colored the image using the awesome, new, ridiculously reasonably priced (able to be pre-ordered) Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers at Crafter's Companion. Can I just say, "I"M LOVING THEM!!". ha

I used paper , ribbon, bling and embellies from my stash to put together this card that I think will be going to someone very special who reads this blog so I can't say who it is. I hope they love it as much as I do.

Do you have your holiday cards made yet?? If you don't you better get busy!! And if you make one using a Crafter's Companion Stamp set you could even enter it in the "Sparkle" Challenge at the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog. The prize this month is an awesome one and you would be lucky to win it!! I hope to see your projects over there soon.

Crafter's Companion is having a blog hop this upcoming weekend. It starts on Friday, December 9th and you will have until midnight on the 11th to hop around to all the blogs. Each member of the Design Team will be giving away a Humphrey Stamp Set to a randomly drawn name from their blog. There will be an AWESOME prize for one person who comments on all the blogs. That person will win The WHOLE SET OF SPECTRUM NOIR MARKERS!!! These are so new that you will be getting our first prototype of them. That is 72 markers!!!!!!

So be sure and hop around this weekend and get in on the fun!

In case anyone was wondering we made it back home from our trip to Oklahoma and Texas. Our family reunion/Christmas party was really a great time. I'm already missing all my family. My kids had a blast running around and acting crazy with their cousins. They are already making plans for next year. Here is a photo of me and the 4 kids who got to go this year in front of the Christmas tree in the hotel lobby.
