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!!

Supplies: (mostly PTI)

Kelley, your card is adorable again!! I am happy you finally met the baby girl! And I believe it`s kinda healthy to be feisty sometimes :)

Wowee, Kelley! Just went through your last 5 posts and sounds like it's been a BIG week for you -- and I'm so happy for that! LOVE what you've been doing with your cards -- endless talent, I say. Hope the yard sale went well, and that it's warmer there today. It's brrrr here, and wet. More like December. Not quite ready for that, but it does make it easier to think autumn and winter!
