Five Months Till CHRISTMAS BABY!!!!!!!!

Iam so excited that we are only five months till Christmas!!!
Being lucky enough to be part of this monthly Christmas blog hop is literally a dream come true for a Christmas nut like me.
This blog gives me a chance every month to display my Christmas cards and keep me motivated so I don't fall behind for the upcoming Christmas craft fairs.
Its also allowed me to be part of an amazingly talented group of woman  that inspire me monthly.
If you have arrived from the talented Sallys blog than you are in the right spot to see the hop in order.
At the bottom of the post I have the hop order in case you may have missed one.
This months theme is Non-traditional Christmas colours.
For me Traditional Christmas colours are Red and Green.
My first card I used brown card stock as my base and some of my brown toned Vintage Whimsy stamp papers.
I used my Kraftin Kimmie Nativity stamps and coloured them all up in earth tones.
I did add some Poinsettia stickers after that are shades of pink and greens and a strip of red but it is mostly earth tones I think.
I also went a tad crazy with my Spica glitter pen lol.

My second card I used charcoal grey as the base than shades of baby blue and white.
I used my new Tiddly Inks Stamp  and got to play with my Whimsy Snowflake die cuts again.
Love, love, love them.
My Big Shot is the coolest  prezzie my Bald Man has ever bought me next to my first iPod.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Christmas cards I hope that you are enjoying the hop.
Next stop is Lee Ann blog and I know you will love it!!!
Hugs and Merry Christmas

Movies in the park tonight

Every summer in the town I live in they have movies in the park.
The park over looks the ocean and they bring in a large screen.
You show up with lawn chairs and hoodies and coffee.
I find hoodies necessary even though its summer because it cools off so close to the ocean.
Tonight they are playing the Croods.
My daughter Karlie wanted to see this one in theatres but movies out are not always in the budget.
At the park its by donation to help support the local food bank.
I had a nap this afternoon after work to guarantee that I wont be falling asleep in my lawn chair.

This week I had an order for a wedding card.
The first image to come to my mind was the Sylvia Zett stamp Love me do.
You can see all her digital images at

I made two so she had a choice and then she bought both.
I was very pleased she liked them both.

A little extra cash that I can justify buying new craft supplies.

Hope that you all have a great weekend.
