Clean and Simple
This is another one of my CAS Christmas cards that I submitted to PTI's Guest Star Stamper contest. Not a whole lot to it but... I think that is the point of CAS! :)
Hope you all had a great Friday and have a fun filled weekend planned! Our yard sale did pretty well today even though it was cold all day. It started misting a couple of hours before the sale ended so I didn't have much traffic after that. I hope tomorrows weather will be better and I will do even better! Momma need some new stamps! :) No... Momma needs to pay some bills!!
So... while I was sitting in the garage, under a blanket, with a heater on my feet... I was doing my blog hopping and saw that I had four cards posted on the CARDS blog today for the Halloween challenge. I was so shocked... I wanted to cry! I was soooo happy and I think the lack of sleep last night didn't help much either! :) I have been pretty 'emotional' today or as my husband likes to say... 'feisty'!! :)
That being said... I am going to go so I can hopefully get a little more sleep tonight. Four hours just doesn't cut it!
Oh... and I got to meet my new baby girl tonight! She is so tiny and just beautiful!! I did really well (not crying) while I was visiting with Kim and Ella. As soon as I got in the car, I was just thinking at how happy Kim looked with her new little girl and I had to have a little cry. Kim and her husband have been blessed with a beautiful boy and now a beautiful girl. I am just so happy for her and so glad that she is my best friend!
While I am all sappy (if you haven't followed long... I get this way from time to time)... I am so glad that you are all my friends too! I received several emails, right after I saw my cards on the CARDS blog, from my blog friends saying Congrats! It is such a wonderful feeling to know that in this competitive world of challenges.. ha :) that I have friends who are happy for me and vice versa when one of us has a 'victory'! I am a pretty competitive person so I do get disappointed if I don't 'win' but I am always joyful for you... my friends... when you do! Love you all!!
