CAS @ The Outlawz and Use your scraps @ Crafting by Designs

I am totally amazed at how fast the year has gone by. It is practically mid-November! Christmas is right around the corner. I have picked up a couple of small Christmas gifts, but nothing of great significance. It will get done, always does.
My little man started out with a cough/cold/stuffiness a few weeks ago. This past week it his cough became worse. A trip to the doctor this morning to discover he has walking pneumonia. Tonight was his raingutter regatta for scouts and we had to miss it. I feel bad about it, the regatta would have been Danny's last one as a Cub Scout. In the spring he moves on to Boy Scouts. The doc said absolutely nothing for 2 days, give the antibiotic a chance to kick in...
I was able to participate in a couple of challenges, which made me feel good. I've been so swamped with getting ready for the craft show that playing with my paper isn't fun anymore. My goal is to have everything made that I am going to sell by Sunday, stamp the greetings, match the envelopes and have everything packed up and ready to go by Wednesday. Hopefully I do well.

Crafting By Designs - November Wk 1 - Tie it up

I've been so busy getting things ready for the craft show. Never again am I going to rent a space without having the goods ready. I hope I do well next week.
This card was made for the challenge over at Crafting By Designs. I think out of all of the cards I've made so far, this is my favorite. I wish I had more brown snowflake paper, I wasn't sure how the card would turn out, but I love it! It was a very simple card to make and of course I used my Cricut. I have a Cricut addiction, lol. The cartridge I used is the Winter Woodland Cartridge.
As always, thanks for stopping by! Have a great night!

November??? Really?

When I was growing up, the timeless phrase that me, the Know It All Kid, heard over and over was how fast time goes. Enjoy it. Don't rush it. Well now that I am in the middle age group (I'm not quite sure how that happened!) I realize just how true those words are. Time is flying! Thanksgiving in less than 4 weeks, Christmas is less than 60 days away! Yikes!
My blog is being neglected, as usual. I have a craft show on November 19th. So many things to make, so little time. And a very good friend of mine asked if I would make favors for a baby shower she is hosting for a friend of hers. These are the favors:
They are filled with M&M's and Skittles. For my craft show I'm going to make tons of these. I have a feeling that Christmas designs will sell well.
I haven't updated my pics for a while, so I apologize in advance for the hodge podge. Just some examples of what I will be selling.
If you see something you like, please post a comment. Drop in, say hello, let me know that you were here.
Hope all is happy in you world! Thanks for stopping by.
