Stampin’ Up! Jolly Holly Christmas!

BLACK FRIDAY!

Good morning, all – are you recovered from your food comas??  Did you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving?  I want to thank you all for stopping by here yesterday for the Blog Hop, even in the midst of your family time!

I think there’s two kinds of people when it comes to the day after Thanksgiving.  There are those of you who’ve been in line at Walmart/Best Buy/The Mall/etc etc since 5 this morning.  And who will shop till you drop today and probably have all your Christmas shopping done by the end of the day.

That is not me.  Never has been!  I prefer to stay safely at home.  Preferably putting up the Christmas tree and all the decorations.  Thanksgiving is, for me, the starting gun for Christmas.  And, quite frankly, that’s the piece that’s making me homesick today.  I got to talk with my mom yesterday and my “second” family in GA – all at dinner, Wayne there with them.  And that was nice.  I very much miss the dinner festivities – and always wish my mom was there with us.  But Christmas dinner will come and we’ll do it then! (I know you’re reading this Mom – Clara WOULD ride in the airplane, you know!).

But, today, I’m not getting my house all blinged up for the holidays.  I’m in a hotel room in Arizona (I was in a hotel room in California for Thanksgiving last year!) And that makes me a little sad.  Of course, I’m also not cleaning my house – and that makes me feel pretty happy! 😉

Anywho – the point of that little rant is….get ready.  There’s going to be lots of Christmas cards coming your way in the next few weeks!  Like today!  I used the Holly Jolly Greetings bundle, a little Versatile Christmas (this one is on the Holiday Retiring List – so you need to get it soon if you want it!), and some Peaceful Wreath (also on the Retiring List!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Peace

Mornin’, y’all!  Well, we didn’t have to work yesterday, which was a bonus!  I came home on Friday all prepared to spend Saturday resting and making cards – thinking I’d get ahead for the week so that if things got hectic, I’d still be good to go.  Guess which one I accomplished?  Think hard. Think about what you’ve learned about me in this past year.

Did you guess right?

If you thought that I probably spent the day resting, and only stirred myself to go downstairs to get some breakfast and to make one card for today….then pat yourself on the back.  You’ve learned me good! 🙂

Yes, apparently my brain and my bod had very different plans for this day.  The bod won!  So – today will definitely be the day to make cards.  I will do it – I WILL!!

But, I did get a card made that I’m quite pleased with.  It’s a Christmas card using my new bundle – Holly Jolly Greetings – which comes with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies!  I bought it with my 2015 Occasions Catalog pre-order, which arrived on Friday!  I was excited to make something with it – I love the Christmas Greetings thinlit words – they’re small and delicate and really look pretty cut out of glimmer paper.  Take a look-see:
