Last of the Christmas Cards

Well... I am happy to report that this is the last Christmas post! I love Christmas but something about posting them in almost 90 degree weather just seems wrong! :) I made a ton for submissions with the thought that I would submit them all to each call as they came up (minus any that happened to get picked up). There are still a couple of Christmas calls in the future but I just think I am out of Christmas card ideas so I don't think I will be making any new ones! I guess I need to purchase some new Christmas stamps... sometime!

Anyway... I won't be posting anything else until Monday... at which time I will post my card for the next round of Paper Crafts Gallery Idol. Woo Hoo!! Make sure to go vote on Monday for your favorite card of the bunch! I am sure they are all going to be fab so I don't envy you for having to decide! If you are my friend ... don't feel the pressure to vote for me! If I move on to another round... I want to know that people just liked my card. If not.... then again... I am just happy to be in the top 20! :)

Okay... now that I have gotten that out of the way! :)

Today has been rough! Not all day but ... not much sleep last night. I woke Carver up after midnight because he was on fire... and well... I got about 4 hours of solid sleep (maybe). Nap time was not pleasant today... he was late taking it and was just so tired. Anyway... he hasn't had any fever as far as I know today. I have kept him on motrin and tylenol most of the day because his throat hurts. Strep test was negative but either he is in the 1-2% that gets a false reading or... he has a virus that mimics strep.... that I can't pronounce! :)

Well... that is all from me. Just wanted to finish up the Christmas cards and give an update on Carver because you guys are sweet and ask how he is doing!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am off to work on my picture project (started it today) and do some stuff for Sunday School. Oh... and laundry and clean up some dishes. :) And hopefully at some point... sleep!

Peace and Love!

Oh, I hope Carver is better soon! It's horrible when the little ones are sick! Your Christmas cards are fab - I can't create any for a long time now either, I have enough of creating Christmas cards! Can't wait to see your Gallery Idol card!!! Have a beautiful weekend and I hope you'll enough sleep!

Kelley, the cards are amazing! I'll keep Carver in my prayers! Hope he is feeling better very soon, and that everyone gets some sleep! Have a great weekend!

Great cards, Kelley. I especially like the holly and berry one.

I'm sorry that Carver still isn't feeling well. I sure hope you all can get some decent sleep soon. It's amazing how that can make one feel so much better. Hang in there!

I love the last card Kelley, I have a thing for bunting at the moment. I hope all is well with Carver and he is on the mend now. Take care. xo

Kelley, I love them all. I especially like the way you used the music -- and the way you credited it, too... :)
Hope Carver is 100% well by now.
