Happy Friday I am sorry this is a late post but I was having problems posting earlier so hopefully it will work now. This card is the second one I made for the sketch challenge on SCS ( I just turned it side ways and it also meets the color challenge from the following day. I was happy with the way it turned out and who dosen't need an extra holiday card. I really am enjoying the Martha Snowflake punch it is so versital.

We are going to be busy this weekend decorating our home inside and out. My dh will be on vacation next week and I have many, many projects for him (shhhhh he doesn't know yet...he he he) I am sure all of you will be busy as well especially since there is only one more weekend after this one until Christmas arrives. I do love Christmas and all that goes with it but I must confess that the day after Christmas is really my favorite time. I can sleep in, wake up and stay in my PJs all day. I can relax have a cup of tea and a few Christmas cookies. It seems as though while I am baking and giving the cookies I really do not indulge in them but the day after Christmas look It is also nice to have my daughter and husband home with me just chillin' out.

I hope you all have a wonderful and productive weekend and that you are able to accomplish what you want and need to do. It seems that the older I get the more I realize that you can only do so much. My motto now is if it does not get done before the holiday it was not that important any way. I find that this works quite well these day. Take the time to enjoy the little things as you build the future memories for you and your family.

Peace Out

Thanks for sharing your story! I'm trying to get my grandma's recipes this year! I want to put together a family cookbook and give one to everyone in my family for Christmas next year. My grandma is the same way with her recipes (measuring things by hand and by eye) so it is kinda tough to write them down in an understandable way! Lol but I think if I can get it all together and organized, it will be a very special gift!
