First Snow

Good Morning!  Can you believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away??  It seems to creep up faster and faster every year.  I only have a couple small gifts left to get.  I have friends coming over Thursday and my family Christmas Eve so I will be busy getting ready for those things.  I love Christmas but hate the rushing around.  This weekend I actually went to the Mall.  The roads were jammed and the parking lot full.  Luckily for me the stores I bought things in were not crowded so I was in and out of them pretty fast.

This is the last challenge until January for Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  The theme this week is First Snow. We have already had that here in the Northeast US  but normally we would be seeing it about now.  Thank you to everyone who joined us in the fun.  We hope to see all of you back next year.

I hope everyone has a Happy and Safe Holiday.

Christmas Presents

Good Morning.  Can you believe Christmas is less than 3 weeks away!! Do you have your Christmas shopping done? I don't.  I have most of my decorating done which is nice.  My nephew is stopping by today to help me put my tree up and hopefully I will find some time to decorate it this week.   It is going to be a crazy few weeks.  I have some vacation after Christmas which I am looking forward to.

This week we have a fun challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  We are asking that you make a card or project with a present on it!!!  I love this stamp from Lili of the Valley.  I thought it was perfect for the challenge.
