when i was growing up, "the snow queen", would come on once a year. remember those days!? i could hardly wait, when i saw it in the t.v. guide. oh, how i loved that cartoon. i just fell in love with the story of kai and gerda. i have tried to find it as an adult. i'm sure my memories of it would be shattered, if i were to see it today. i had so much fun last night. it showed me i could create under pressure:)
i really enjoyed making this card. it is a shout out to seattle!! i know i probably mention it too often, but i really miss the northwest!! so i was very pleased with myself on this design. i don't have a "miss you" stamp, but i thought this worked well.

my techie daughter is at a sleepover, so i had to figure all this out by myself. :) i did have a little help from my other knowitall child, sean. :) i'm sure even my 8 year old would know more than me. i can't believe i made all of these cards last night!! sure was fun and messy. thanks to anyone who's stops by.

well, our family had a relaxing, easy thanksgiving. so mellow, that i only made two cards. not sure about the distressing on the thanksgiving card. the cupcake one was for little 4 year old chloe's birthday, a friends daughter. it's much more glittery than in the picture. i love the color combo. i think i'm still having the effects of the turkey tryptophan. i can hardly keep my eyes open. seriously, on friday i woke up, made breakfast and then at 10:00 i had to go back to bed. i slept for another 2 hours.
we have 3 weeks until the kids break, 2 full glorious weeks off!!! sleeping in, minimal homework hopefully. last year my junior had 4 projects due over the break, in ONE stinkin' class!! that didn't include the other classes. i find it so ridiculous to assign things over a break. where is the family time? we were so stressed about it that it really put a damper on the trip. i kept having to nag sean the whole time. sophie was in the ninth grade and had nothing!? can you tell i'm still a little bitter:)
we will be on the road to cape cod and western mass. for the holidays. there will be stories galore ..... well, i'm feeling a bit dozy again, ta ta. have a terrific week and keep on stamping.
