Can you believe I'm working on Christmas Projects already?

I love Christmas time...and I think it should last much longer then it does! In August I always start working on Christmas cards and projects. I have been asked to design the make & takes for an up, up, upline of mine, Alicia. She is planning a BIG ALL DAY meeting in August and we are doing a Christmas theme! My fav! I have been planning these projects for a little while now...mostly on paper and in my head. So last night and today I have been able to make the projects...and they have turned out sooooo good. I don't have the stamp set or the DSP we'll be using yet! So I've made most of the projects and I will add those finishing touches next week! On Friday night I get to share them with Alicia! Oh, I hope she likes them...and doesn't think that they are too much work! I told her that I have a hard time with "simple"...I like the little details...and when I get working away on something I lose track of I think that the project that I'm making at the time is simple and Quick but then when someone else tries to duplicate it ...we'll it takes a little more time. But I have been taking step by step pictures to go along with the projects and writing up the directions. Sorry to tease you because I cannot show you the projects just yet.

But I do have a card for you today...I was inspired by Sharon Field....

The DSP (Designer Series Paper) is from Greenhouse Gala. The colours are Baja Breeze Early Espresso and Whisper White cardstock. The butterfly was stamped on Tangerine Tango CS (cardstock) with Basic Black Craft Ink and embossed with Clear embossing powder. Then I coloured in some places ont he butterfly with a white gel pen.

I would like to make this same card with different colours...maybe today!

Summer and I got to have a "Girls Night" last night...wanna know what we did? We watched Barbie's Fairytopia and ate Oreo cookies with milk and then we ate some pop corn and had some chocolate milk with that! We snuggled on the couch! It was fun...just what we needed.
The boys went down to the park for Bayfest....Rush was playing. Jon really likes them and has been playing their music for Liam over the last couple of Liam knows some of their songs too. They found a place outside of the concert (Liam is too young, in our opinion, to go inside...too many people!) where they could see the big screen and hear the music. Jon said that Liam was so excited...his first concert...and doing it with Dad! Liam wants to go back tonight but Jon doesn't like who's playing. So Liam went off to Papa's tonight for a sleepover!
Miss Summer will be sleeping over with me, in my bed...we have never done this before...we usually do camp-outs in the living room, where she'll sleep on the floor and I on the couch...but she wants to snuggle with me in my we are kicking Daddy out of his bed and he can sleep in the couch or in Liam's bed! Tee hee! I hope that Summer is not a puncher or kicker in her sleep. Liam is. Last Summertime...(see how I have to distinguish between Summer, my daughter and Summer the season!!!)...we went camping in a tent and Liam punched me right in the check in his sleep...he's a maniac when he sleeps...he fell out of his bed just last night...poor little guy. He's a go'er...never stops...never stops talking either...even talks in his sleep!

Ok, enough about them. I can go on and on....I love them so much!

Enjoy your Saturday night...I'm going to!!!
