O' Christmas Tree


So last year my 15 year old son was a tad grumpy when it came time to decorate for Christmas.
This really upset me since I love everything about Christmas especially the decorating!
So I said to him "I bet if this was a football themed tree you would be all about the decorating!" He replied" Yes I would!" So I beat him at his own game! HA! HA! Light bulb moment was happening!

Our tree this year is all bout the football right down to the topper!!!!! How clever am I???? (Ok so Mary gave me the cone suggestion and I went with the rest!)

One for Mom!!!!!

I made a few of the ornaments and have a few more that I have decoupaged but are not ready for hanging. I underestimated the dry time! I will show those later!!

OK Scroll down to be amazed at such a beautiful football tree!!!!!

It's been awhile!

I am definitely missing my stamping time.
As I was blurfing today I came across a site to change your background for free!! Yipee I love free!
I am all about the free stuff! So I did some playing!
What do you think?

I am going to clean the mess that is my craft room tonight(I have to the cable guy is coming to install my new modem and right now you can barely see the computer table. YIKES!) so I will get in there and actually get to stamp! I need to get my Christmas cards done! I have not even started UGH! But i have the long weekend coming so hopefully after I brave the stores on Black Friday and come out alive HEHEHE, I will stamp and post something!
If I even have any readers?????

Monkey Business!

I got to finally do a sketch challenge over at splitcoast. The Kids are back in school(Doing a big happy dance here!!) You can find that challenge here.

I also finally was able to make my card for Sherry Cheever's Twisted Humor challenge found here.
Oh what fun I had doing this one!! A little racy but funny! Now I wish I had someone to give it to!! HMMMM. LOL The inside of the card reads "Wanna Monkey around with me??" Sentiments are both computer generated as they were thought of in my warped brain!! lol

I also used my new nestabilities for this! Oh yeah loving theses babies!

Love this sketch!!
What I used
Paper SU Creamy caramel, KC designer mat pack, SU Whisper white
Stamps TAC
Accessories Ribbon, nestabilities.

Ok off to squeak one more in before the mighty midgets get here and the babies wake up!

My Children think I am brilliant! My daycare children that is. The 14 year old still thinks I am strange but hey he is fourteen after all.
Anyway I had the kids alter picture frames. They loved it. Stickers bling paper and markers and they were off! Kept them busy for a little over an hour! Whoohoo!So here they are-----

Off to test my twisted imagination with a challenge found at Sherry Cheever's blog! Be back after I have finished it!

I'm Back with Monograms!

Summer is almost gone here! Eight(8) little days until the kiddies go back to school! But who's counting? *-7-6-5-...... LOL I love them but they get in the way of stamping time! LOL Seriously, I will miss them. Also a few of the day care kids will be leaving me as they have reached middle school age now and think they have outgrown me! Sniff Sniff!

I have had these Justrite Monogram sets for months and have finally had time to play with them!

I made this set for my MIL as a thank you for driving my son to events this summer.
I am going to add a few more cards to this. I was just so excited that I actually was able to play and have time to blog too!!
What I used

Ribbon Stampin up Regal Rose and a Misc Blue

I am electrified!!!

WOW I can't believe it has been a month since I have posted! Bad blogger! LOL
We have been having some vicious thunderstorms the last few days! It has been wild!
Well last night it literally hit my house and a tree in my yard!! Blew the tree all over the yard. Thanks God no one was hurt and the damage was only to the tree outside.
The house did not sustain any damage but sadly my stove in the kitchen was zapped. Oh Darn it all I won't be able to cook!! LOL
Waiting for the insurance adjuster to come and then I can get everything fixed!!
I really hope there are not any windy storms until that tree gets removed.

several large chunks blew off the tree. The power of nature is just amazing!!
Maybe I can get some stamping in this Holiday weekend!
