Just Hanging Around

The craziness that is my December is starting to have a light at the end of the tunnel. I am hoping that after this weekend, my long list will have a lot more "done" than "to do". Once the stores open today, I am off (kids in tow) to purchase gifts for my staff at work, mail those Christmas cards and parcels that have yet to be sent (sorry everyone if they are a wee bit late!), wrap some presents and finish the gifts for the kids teachers and classmates (the things I put myself through each year). With some help I should get through this. Of course that doesn't include the pile of laundry and house cleaning that will need get done in-between everything else.

This is a card I made earlier this week for one of my staff that welcomed her second daughter on Friday the 13th.  The digital image is from Sassy Cheryl called A Bear for All Seasons.

The paper is Carta Bella "Alphabet Junction".

The image is coloured using Copic markers.

The layout was inspired by a great sketch from Karen check it out at her blog The Sweetest Thing. I discovered her wonderful sketches and challenges just recently.

Here's hoping the snow doesn't slow me down too much today. Stay warm and good luck getting things checked off your lists!



  1. LOL on the 'done' compared to the 'to do'. Been there myself.
