I was surfing blogs and checked out a fav of mine and found this little post for easy, super cute Christmas cards...after debating what pp to use and creating a Christmas tree pattern in PSP since I don't have any tree stamps, it took me about 15 minutes to make 4 of them!!! Watch the video to see just how easy they are and then get started on your own Christmas Cards, like I did! :)
Ignore the crooked stamping...my stamp was messed up and I finally (by the last card ;)) had to take it off the wood mount and reposition it!!! Might have to redo the background piece before I send them off...it's driving me batty!!!!
Come on over and join us at Scrap Shotz - Jess has issued a challenge that looks easily managable!!
The challenge is this...
Do (or re-do if you've done them)... TWENTY of the October and November challenges...
...yes the mini card crop challenges
...yes the October DT challenges
...yes the Color your world crop challenges
...yes the Scrappy Hour projects
...yes the November DT challenges
With supplies from your CURRENT STASH... (as of today...)
Win the draw and I will buy you the December SSZ kit in it's entirety!!! Even if you're a subscriber the bill will come to me! (DT members...you will get the equivelent in a GC as you'd already have the kit...)
Anyone up for the challenge???
Deadline is December 1st...
Come pick your spot in the thread and start scrapping...it'll be fun, I promise...and well worth it if you win the contest, the prize rocks!!!! :)

That said, no matter how tired I am...I WILL!!!! scrap tonight!!!! I've had so much mojo lately that it's surprising even me!!! Everything is pulled out from the Mini Card Crop that SSz had a couple weeks ago to start my Christmas cards so it really wouldn't be hard but I have so much new stuff...and more on the way that I've been wanting to play with that I'm okay if I wait a little bit to start them!! ;) I've got an idea brewing in my head for the pumpking carving pictures I took last Thanksgiving at my in-laws place...I figure with some TLC in PSE that I can get some cool photos to print and scrap! **mental note to stop at Staples tonight to buy printer paper...and maybe some ink! ;)
Off to look at some inspiration on blogs and in galleries...I mean get back to work!!!! Have a great weekend everyone!

So, I made it through to Round #3 of the So You Think You Can Scrap contest at YMBD, I'm so excited!!!! Thanks for the votes for those of you that voted for me!!!! :) The next round is very cool....going to take a lot of thinking to do something different and that stands out from the crowd!!! I have an idea so I'll be starting tonight...even skipping volleyball to scrap...so not like me but that's how excited I am...and my knee is still a bit swollen! ;) Shh...that's the real reason I'm missing but hey, whatever works!!!! :) :)
Picking up photos from yesterday's shoot on the way home tonight, I can't wait to take a gander of them printed and see how they compare to my monitor...and scrap them, of course! ;)
That's it for now...oh, check out the gallery at Scrap Shotz, lots of yummy stuff in there from the online crop this weekend!!!!!!
Enjoy your day!!!

On a sadder note, today marks the first day that I can't call myself a Design Team member at Scrap Shotz...I'm going to miss it in a big way, especially the team environment - but I'm also looking forward to scrapping for me, with product that I buy and never seem to find time to use and spreading my wings to see just where I'll fly next in this wonderful world of scrapbooking! One project I have on the go is So You Think You Can Scrap at YMBD, check it out, there's a couple more days to enter and the talent is amazing!!!!
Check out the talent with the new October DT Kit at Scrap Shotz here it's more than worth it!!!!! YUM!!! A very warm welcome to the new Design Team members, Cari, Amber and Laura!!!! See, there was no need to be nervous! ;) ;)
