27 more days till Christmas!

I came home today and spent the afternoon wrapping the kids Christmas presents before they got home from school.
It was so much easier to shop for them them when they were little.
Dolls and Legos were always Christmas favourites.
Now its makeup, clothes and video games.
Time flies by faster than I ever thought possible.
After the wrapping I spent some time colouring this little cutie from Make it Crafty.

Happy American Thanksgiving!!!!!

Being a Canadian we have already stuffed ourselves last month on Turkey and all the fixings.
A month ago I was thankful for my family, health and having a job.
Tonight I am still thankful for my family, health and having a job.
The thing I love about American Thanksgiving here though is that it kicks off the Christmas programming.
I love watching all the old Holiday classics.
Iam also thrilled that several of my crafting sites are having Black Friday sales starting at midnight.
I dont get the Black Friday hoopla but I may jump on the sale band wagon tonight.
Recently I treated myself to a new Digi from Make it Crafty

Too all my American blogging friends I hope that you had a great holiday today with your loved ones.
Stay safe if your going to venture out and join the shopping crowds.

Coffee or Hot Chocolate for the Kraftin Kimmie Food or Drink challenge #145

When the weather outside is frightful, I find a steamy cup of coffee to be quite delightful.
Are you a coffee or hot chocolate fan.
My husband thinks I am actually addicted to carrying around a the hot mug.
Iam submitting this little bug eyed cutie into the Kraftin Kimmie inspired by food and drink challenge.

Brrrrrrr a little

Ok Brrrrrr but not.
We have no snow or wind or rain.
Just feels colder than it has in a long time.
Guaranteed my Bald Man is wearing his toque today at work.
Me Iam warm and cozy inside colouring images of Snowmen.
Better than being outside feeling the Brrrrrr.
My image today is from Kraftin Kimmie, her adorable snowman called sending winter hugs.

Warm Winter Wishes

This week has been very warm for Christmas card creating.
Family in Alberta are facebooking pictures of Snow and I am wearing a T shirt and flip flops.
Yesterday it was a warm plus 14 in November.
Whats also nice is that I have one more card that I was lucky enough to have displayed on One Crazy Stampers site this month as a guest designer.
It was such a fun experience that I hope to one day repeat.

For my final card I used Whimsy stamps Holly!
The sentiment is from Krafftin Kimmies Holiday Sentiment set.
The papers used are from Xmas Bella paper pad.
I think she is adorable.
This card was also added to a fundraiser where she bought to help raise money for a local mother with cancer.
The money raised will help  to send her to India for what we hope will be a life saving procedure.
Fingers crossed and prayers prayed.

Changing Holidays Decorations

I know I promised my Bald Man that I wouldn't start Christmas decorating until tomorrow  so for now I can take down all the Halloween decorations.
What else I can do today is show you another card I have featured on One Crazy Stampers Blog!!!!!

This is Whimsy stamps Heidi, you can find her at One Crazy Stamper.
I coloured her with Copic markers and Spica Clear Glitter pen.
I used white pearls as the falling snow. You can find these pearls and a huge assortment of other pearls at One Crazy Stamper.
The papers are from Whimsy Stamps Vintage Christmas which you can also buy at One Crazy Stamper.
Love that store they carry everything you need to get crafty.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog, please come back again.

That handsome Santa is mine by the way :)
