What a week!

Wow, this past week has been a blur!!  Time to switch gears and move on to Christmas now!  We celebrated 3 different Thanksgivings this week, and each one was special, and delicious!

I seriously have a ton of stuff to do now, Christmas cards are first on my list!  I may change things up a bit this year and send ornaments instead of cards. (If I can squeeze them all in, in time!)  Maddie and I sat down  together a while ago and came up with a few ornaments.

Here's a peek-
Maddie does such a good job, can't tell whose are whose, can ya!?  We used a ton of chipboard!!  It was fun using different papers, nesties, and some distressing inks.  We used a ton of pop-dots too, to give the ornaments some serious detail in the layers.  (Snowman-Unity, Girl-Miss Anya Scarves from The Greeting Farm, Be Merry-Recollections.)

I have a feeling a lot of things I will be making will need to be more simple, kind of like this...
I know, very CAS, but it will work in a pinch!  I have been having a blast with my snowflake patterned embossing folder! (Tree and sentiment from Avocado Arts.)

Time to go work off some of my Thanksgiving pound-age, and digging out the tree and ornaments might be just the exercise I need! (That's always the hardest part! lol!)

Have a good weekend everyone!!
