Christmas Cards Calling

It has been a long time coming - Christmas cards from me! This is it. Shut the front door, it is happening!

I had been so busy with my mom, then my dad, that I was not able to go on the annual Christmas Card making weekend with my card making girls, for the past two years.   Well, I was able to go this year.

Oh my, good thing I went.  These girls were going a bit crazy.  They needed some reigning in!  {look at me act like I don't fit in!}  Just what I needed three days away, some card making, some good food, some good friends, some shopping, oh okay, we day drank one day - again, reigning them in!

We go to the beach each year.  The rental we used prior was sold, so we have a new place to dwell.  It was awesome!  We rented a lake house at the beach. I know! The best of both worlds, lake and beach. The weekend was in October and a little questionable for weather.  Lucky us, it was perfect out!!!

I still have a lot of work to do!!!!

Usually, I finish my cards during the weekend.  If I had not chosen 5000 layers, I might have!  Did I mention I have 5 layers on the interior too?  Nuts!!!   Everything is still in the box that I brought it home in.  Aaaahhhh!

I used a Whipper Snapper image that my nice friend Barb sent me to use a few years ago.  It was a fun image.  I did a use what'cha got with the exception of the rhinestones and the ribbon, as I did not have enough of either.  Yay!  There are 50 of these little 'little gems' {insert eye roll} for a total of 700 layers. Nuts!!!

Okay, I have to get going on these.  I cannot wait to see all of the cards this year.  Post what you have.  I wanna see. Looking forward to it!
