Ho Ho Hello!

Is that Santa I'm hearing? No! It couldn't be! Although...Halloween is next week and this month has gone by at lightning speed! Perhaps I am hearing the faintest sound of Santa?

If you are like me, you are thinking there's plenty of time to make Christmas cards, ornaments and gifts. Then I blink my eyes and it's just two weeks until the big day! Does that happen to you? You go from having all the time in the world to it being the eleventh hour in the snap of a finger?!?!

I've already made a half dozen or so holiday cards this month so just maybe this year I'll be a little further ahead? Yea, right! Not! ;)

Here's a Christmas card I made yesterday using the 'Santa's Workshop' collection and a 'Create a Card' base from Doodlebug Designs. Could this card be anymore colorful or cute?

I'm in love with Doodlebug's Create a Card line!!! They're a series of stylish card bases created in the nine colors Doodlebug is famous for! They make it so easy to create the cutest cards! Pretty darn quick too!

For this card I picked a card base from the Polka Dot Assortment...there's a subtle polka print on the inside and a scalloped edge on the bottom of the card and the flap of the envelope. I simply cut a square piece of Candy Cane Lane paper from the Santa's Workshop line and added a scalloped border at the top with  Fancy Frills. Santa is a Cute Cuts die cut. Then I accented the die cut with a few Mini Jewels and Icon Stickers. I added a die cut snowflake using one of my thin dies and layered it with a Boutique Button. All these products coordinate perfectly! So easy! So cute! So much fun!

So, what are you up to this weekend? Have you been to the pumpkin patch yet. Do you have your costumes picked out? Oh, guess what? Christopher decided that he didn't want to trick or treat this year! The only reason I'm not in complete shock is that he mentioned this a couple years ago when he was eight. I was very shocked then! Since then, I've been expecting he might give it up. His dad and I are fine with it and told him he could always go next year if he missed going this year. And you know what? The reason he gave for not wanting to go was that I make such yummy desserts, he no longer needs candy! That makes a mom feel pretty good! :)

Well, whatever your weekend plans are, I hope you have the best one! Enjoy!
