Have yourself a merry...

Check out my Christmas Blog Candy here!

Hi everyone! I haven't been around much and I have totally been lacking in making comments on others' projects. Shame on me!!! Seriously though, some of you may remember that I had gotten a 2nd job to supplement my scrapping budget. Unfortunately, I am always too tired to scrap and craft - how freakin ironic is that??!!?? All I feel like doing is sleeping :( Plus it has been a very stressful week at my full time job - but I shan't go into details and bore all of you to sleep :)

Enough about me and my complaining LOL

Tonight's challenge: I combined Sami's SPCC Christmas color challenge (I think I am 3 challenges behind - I will catch up, I promise):

and Mojo Monday:

And here is my entry, I am trying to use up some of my scraps :)

I would love to do something else besides ribbon-button-twine, but it is my comfort zone. Someday, I will venture out of my lil box.

Card Ingredients: Recollections Basics Hot Pink Houndstooth paper; Recollections cardstock; Craftsmart Teal ink; Inkadinkado stamps; Sheer Creations ribbon; random gems, button, and twine.

Happy Thursday! It is wayyyy past my bedtime - so I am off to sleepy land. I hope the week has been treating you all well. I miss you all!!! I will do my best to be back here tomorrow night and then I hope to get many projects done this weekend. Take care my friends!

I love your card and it's a shame you don't have more time to be creative. That's life though. Don't go kicking yourself for running out of time either - you can only do so much Deanne! we're not going anywhere just pop over when you can and don't worry if you can't.

Love Lynda xxx

Hey Deanne...sorry your jobs are making you so tired. Hope you have time to catch up on some sleep (and some crafting!) over the weekend. I love your card...that snowman is just adorable and HEY don't stop using the buttons with the twine..I LOVE THAT! :)

Dayna said...

I agree with Lori..don't stop using the buttons with twine!! Great card, thanks for sharing.

Jen said...

Jingle said...

I love that pink houdstoothe background! It sucks that you are too tired to scrap! I hate it when that happens!

Those Mojo Monday sketches are always so good, I need to get myself over there... what's one more challenge?! LOL. GREAT card!!! I love the colors!

Shelly said...

Pretty card! I like the way you interpreted the sketch. I love to see cards made with scraps. it gives me good ideas for using up mine.:)

I hope you can get rested up.

(Agreeing with Lori and Dayna) I LOVE how you use the twine and buttons! This card is gorgeous! And great job using paper scraps.
And I know all about being too tired to do anything. :(
I wish I could go part-time somwhere and just sit and scrap for hours. But oh well...
Try to get some rest this weekend and maybe you'll feel like doing something later. That's what I'm hoping for me anyway! lol
