Merry Christmas Snowflake and Hearts....Freshly Made Sketches

Good Monday Morning!!

The weekend passed in a blur, with nearly all of Saturday spent proofreading a thesis (trust me, not mine!) that was quite fascinating and yesterday, crafting, while listening to Christmas Carols.  Michael Buble, specifically and oh my, wonderful!  In the midst of seeming 'everything' I did, I still feel as though I accomplished very little!  Ever experience that?  I still have cards for family to make, and tags; however, Round 5 are nearly done! Assembly line assembling planned for later.

My morning's first realization: I didn't post my Freshly Made Sketches card! Before the link closes (even before I pour a cup of coffee!), and before I head to work - in the rain (crazy weather!) and chinook wind - I'd best do so.  I'll also add that I was completely, totally and 100% inspired by Cindy Lovell's stunning card shared in the DT gallery.  Her work is amazing.  Absolutely amazing!!

Thanks for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

Hey Birthday Girl!!! And just what are you doing heading to work on this special day?!!! I am glad you got some crafting done yesterday, because this one, my friend, has just entered the top 5! Although, is it possible to put one into the top 5 without taking one out? Because that's what I'm doing!!!! I LOVE this - the colours, the layers, the snowflakes, the PERFECTION! I'm totally in love! Don't tell Dave ;) !!! Have an amazing birthday - and leave work early!!!
