SSW 81 - Fresh Brewed



My Blog Candy - please go {here}
ABC Christmas Blog Hop - please go {here}

++++ THREE more days until Christmas ++++

I can finally say it! Tomorrow is my last day of work until my 10 1/2 days off! (and yes, the 1/2 day counts LOL). And then Christmas Eve is right away, followed by Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Two of my favorite days of the year!!!! I am SO ready!!

Many people don't really much care for Boxing Day. If you aren't familiar with this day, it is considered a STAT holiday where I live in Canada. I compare it to Black Friday in the States. My husband, his family, and myself, get up nice and early, grab a cup of hot coffee and go shopping ALL DAY LONG. We shop and eat until we drop! It is our tradition and I LOVE IT! I usually get up extra early to go to Michaels by 7Am just to do my own shopping first, then I go with my sister-in-law later in the day.
ETA: For the record (and to settle some of my commentors), I know Boxing Day is not a STAT everywhere. It is at my work and that is all that counts ;)

I am babbling, but this will be my last blog post until next Monday as I am taking a bit of a Christmas break from crafting. I just thought I would share a bit of my holiday fun with everyone!

I mustn't forget that not only is it 3 days until Christmas, but it is also Sweet Sketch Wednesday too! This week we are being sponsored by the lovely Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs. The winner will get to chose 3 images of their choice!!!

I used this little cutie, Angel Cake...




...on Arlana's beautiful sketch:

Oh Deanne, I am so jealous of all your days off from work. I have Friday off and that is it. I hope youo have a wonderful time and especially a wonderful Christmas. Enjoy boxing day. It sounds like fun. I just love the colors you used for your card this week. So bright and fun!! Your cards are always perfect!! Merry Christmas!
Hugs Nancy

She looks great! Wonderful card!

Jen said...

Not to burst your bubble or anything, but since we just finished the payroll update I think it is my responsibility to let you know that Boxing Day in Saskatchewan is not actually a Stat holiday. It is actually only considered a Stat holiday on Ontario but many companies give it as a holiday anyway. I know, I'm just a party pooper, but what does it matter to you, you are still on holidays! Have a great one! :o)

Deanne, I just learned something new...boxing day! Sounds fun and your dh is so excited!...only 4 days! I love it! I would love to go shopping with you at Michaels! That's one of my favorite places as we don't have a Hobby Lobby here which is really my favorite craft store! Do enjoy your days off...it's always nice to relax. Your card is stunnign again. I lov your white accents...I do need to take some time and learn new skills and techniques...but there is always too much to occupy my time. Anyway, I adore your dots and gingham!

Hi Deanne, love your card great colours together and just adore the gingham paper looks great.
We too celebrate Boxing Day in NZ and the boxing day sales. As Christmas day falls on a Saturday and Boxing on Sunday Monday and Tuesday are day off in loo as it falls in a weekend. We also have New Years day and the day after off in NZ, but Australia only have New Years day off. Have a wonderful time shopping what is Michaels's??? Tell me more.
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
Hugs always
Kathie

Hi Deanne, cute card! Your boxing day sounds brilliant...boxing day for me is the day when all our friends get together and this year they're all coming to my place. We exchange pressies, play games and eat lots! We've been doing it for ages and I love it! Its nice to have a tradition. I hope you have a wonderful Chrismtas and get lots of bargains on Boxing Day!

Arlana said...

Deanna. I love your card this week. The colors and papers you uses just so SWEET. I hope you have a very SWEET Christmas. Thanks for helping out with so much on the SSW blog this past year.

Tanya R said...

Gorgeous card, love the colors. You are all very brave to go shopping on Boxing Day! I am in Ottawa, Canada too, and I have to say I may venture to Michaels, with their 25% off your entire order coupon, but that is only if I feel brave.
Merry Christmas.
Hugs
Tanya
