Holiday Travel

On Sundays this month, I am the guest designer over at Christmas Card Challenges.  It has been such a pleasure to make cards for this wonderful challenge site!  Today's challenge is to incorporate holiday travel into your card.  There was one journey that immediately popped into my head:

This is one of Stampin' Up's digital stamps.  I brought it over to Print Shop and changed the colors to make it what I wanted it to look like.  I printed it on Bo Bunny paper.  Such an easy, but beautiful card!

I have to apologize for not being around much lately and for posting things a little late.  I have been working almost full-time - and loving every minute of it!  And I'm really glad to say that my job went from seasonal to permanent.  That is a huge blessing and I am so thankful!  What it doesn't leave a lot of time for is reading blogs and crafting.  But this is just for a bit.  I am quite certain that after the first of the year, I will be getting less hours, and I'll be right back to crafting every day.  For now, I cram it all into one or two days, so you'll see spurts here and there.  Other than the osteoperosis in my hips, I am also thankful to say that my health is really good and I'm able to work with no problems.  That's such a blessing - thank you, Father!

Shane is loving school, and he has already learned how to keep my short hair trimmed.  He was born for cosmetology - and it shows.  He wakes up excited to go to school every day, and Jerry and I love seeing that!  His future is definitely looking exciting!

I am happy to say that I am finishing up my cards tomorrow, and they will be going out in Tuesday's mail.  Nothing like the last minute, huh?  I thought rather take my time than hurry through, so that each one is special.  So this year, late is better than never!  That's why I love Christmas Card Challenges so much.  Next year, I will be completely on top of this thanks to that challenge blog!  But just ot let you know how behind I am this year, I'll let you know that Jerry and I started and finished our Christmas shopping today.  It was a full day, but it was relatively easy.  It was a sunny warm winter day, and the stores and mall were quite festive.  And it's always a pleasure to spend a day out with my hubby!

I hope to catch up with all of you this week.  In the meantime, please know that I am sending happy Christmas wishes your way!
