2 More Bdays

Two more family birthday cards to share. The mail was a bit delayed getting to them so I wanted to wait before I posted here...

Back on Thanksgiving.. not only did my niece have her 5th birthday (see post here) but so did my wonderful sister! I made her this card with this cute Hanglar Stamp image
Garden girl

A couple of weeks later another niece turned 12... I can't believe she's already 12! She's into the recent peace sign trend so I thought "Peace" from The Greeting Farm was a perfect fit! :)
Celebrate today

Hope they had FABULOUS birthdays :)

O Christmas Tree...

O Christmas Tree..

We're back this week at Tiddly Inks with another challenge! This week- we challenge YOU to create a project that is inspired by a Christmas song/carol.

I chose this super cute image of the Bah-Huggabuggs since decorating has been on my brain (see this post if you missed it!)
Christmas Buggs

O Christmas Tree

Be sure to check out the FABULOUS projects from the design team and all the details on how to enter the challenge on the TIDDLY INKS CHALLENGE blog!

I'm also re-posting my card from the last challenge just because it fits with the challenge for this week too!
Watch Over Us...

It reminds me of one my favorite holiday songs- "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" by David Bowie & Bing Crosby

Now that I have Christmas songs floating around in my head... I'm off to make some more cards!
Fa la la la la...

It's beginning to..

Look a lot like Christmas around my house!

We've started to pull out our Christmas decorations around our house and little by little (even in the desert!) it's beginning to look & feel a lot like Christmas! I thought I'd give a peek at some of our decor...

First is a wreath I made for my husband...

Yes those are little football helmets... he is a HUGE Indianapolis Colts fan! 

I've recently started getting into a ton of wonderful home-decor idea blogs and found Poppies at Play- and I'm entering this in her Christmas Wreath or Sign contest (please leave a comment here & let you know what you think!)

This is "my" wreath I have hanging on our front door...

We have our tree up, but not decorated yet- that's today's plan for the day.. along with the lights outside, I'll share those later.  But in the meantime here are some other holiday decorations we have around the house...

Thanks for stopping by!
