One more Card!

Boy have I been busy!!! No time to scrap at all!!!! ARGHH!!! I ended up not making any additional Christmas Cards to send out, and since I have tons of paper, I will be working on Cards throughout the year!
My mom came into town from Aruba, and my dad is coming next week! I hope to get to scrap with her soon! I hope after Christmas!
This card was a request from a co-worker who wanted a card for a family member. So I made this card yesterday, it's deja-vu of another card I made, with a different snow flake and some minor changes...

Merry Christmas to you! I hope to have some new projects soon after Christmas!

Christmas Tree and Mantel!

We got our tree this weekend! It has been a tradition since I can remember as a little girl going out and picking out a Christmas Tree in Aruba! One of my favorite things to do! So every year I get VERY excited when this time of year comes! We went to Home Depot to get our tree, we have for years.. I was a little disappointed when we got home the tree was SMALLER than the previous 2 years in this house... bummer... it still turned nice. I want to get a few new ornaments and maybe add some ribbon to it. The house is a mess right now.. so I will add more photo's later!
