FINALLY!!!

Happy holidays!!!

Are you ready for Christmas...have you wrapped all your presents yet??? I think I'm close...I have to bake a cake in the morning and wrap Jerry's presents while he is out golfing with his dad and then I finally exhale.....wahooooo!!!

The girls have kept me pretty busy the last few days and tonight I had a chance to escaped for a pedicure
plus I got to see the movie *How Do You Know* with Reese Whiterspoon. It was a really fun movie and I had to laugh so hard....watch it too if you can :) !?!



Anyway, I finally had a chance to make a card as well...yeah!!! I browsed the challenge blogs a bit this afternoon and out came this fun little card!!! I couldn't help it, but my sweet snowman from the Flourishes Warm Winter Wishes was calling my name again!!! Did I mention I *L.O.V.E* this little guy??? It was really hard to resist him!!! My inspiration for this card came from this weeks The Shabby Tea Room #41 and this weeks Belli Challenge #107 ~ Merry Christmas.


All that *red* made me dig out this really fun SU DP from the Merry Moments Collection. I topped it off with a Red Stitched Ribbon, a matching Red Button, some Silver Pearls and the Silver Beaded Cord (all purchased at Michael's). At last I added the Dazzling Diamond Glitter...voila!!!

Have a fabulous evening and thank you for stopping by...see ya soon!!! Hugs ~S~

There is that cute fella again...I'm in love with him, too! :-) I looked high and low in our Mike's for that beaded cord and could not find any! I will persist and hopefully after the holidays, there will be a sales person who can help me.
