Holiday Card

So it has been absolutely crazy ... I lost my craft room for a while there to temporary storage of furniture and my beautiful grand baby made her grand entry of Joy and Happiness right there at the beginning. 
Then we have the holiday madness itself .. from concert to party to party to concert.  It has been crazy to say the least. I lost count on how many large bows I made this month for trees, wreaths and railings - my fingers were numb for a while. 
Oh and not to forget there was a car accident in there somewhere too ... on the interstate.   Still an insurance nightmare.

BUT ... it's all coming to a final hurrah as we enter  into 2018 and I'm looking forward to it. 




     This was my holiday card for the office another whirlwind of an adventure.  


Dry Emboss, Heat Emboss, Die cut with a stitched curve, machine cut snowflake dipped in glitter, grosgrain bow - screams holiday fun.  ---- 32 made ----- 







I wasn't going to participate in the festivities (I was just too stressed with the accident), but my hubby got the best of me and well ... challenge accepted.  There was a decorating contest along with other craziness ... cookies, candy and potlucks - oh my.  Then the card to match it all. 

So with that ... my section won the contest ...






amazing what a bit of paper, glitter, glue and string can do ...
others asked where I bought the banner ... like huh?











Looking forward to 
2018 to be fierce!!

lets do this ...


bring on the crafty fun !!  







HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
