Happy Wednesday everyone!
I hope you're all having a wonderful Holiday season. I have to say it takes time for me to get in the spirit, in fact, the past three years I haven't even sent Christmas cards. But this year my dear friend, neighbor and stamping partner in crime, Pam, helped me. She motivated me to put up the tree, put on the Christmas music and get busy on my cards. Thanks Pam~ I love ya! Hopefully you'll see her beautiful creations very soon!
I did however, take a break from Christmas cards to get in on the SCS Color Challenge. This week's colors are Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Not
Quite Navy. I used my new Willow stamp from Whiff of Joy and this sketch from Paper Craft Planet
All of you talented ladies and guys help motivate me too with your oh so gorgeous cards and gifts that I love to admire when I'm visiting your blogs and galleries! I'm so grateful for my stamping craft and all of you, my awesome creative blogger friends! Have a wonderful evening and keep on smiling! :):)

Hugs and Smiles to you~

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Denise I'm so happy that you got the CB!! You will get so much use out of it! Did he happen to get you a folder or two with it? lol! Really, you've got a great hubby for giving you something so great! It sounds like you are very lucky to have a wonderful friend like Pamela too.

Happy day after your birthday!!! and you got a CB! Have fun!! Hey, I am just sitting down now to make some sad is that! and I still have a few gifts to do, too. But our big storm in CT today may help get me in the spirit, even though I am working here at home. Hope you have a great day today!
