Advent Calendar

This is what I have been working on the past couple of weeks. I'm kinda sad to say that is has actually been weeks....I don't think it should have taken me that long, but nonetheless I am happy to say that I am now finished.
Each day is actually a decorated 3 x 3 envelope, so that a little message or something of the like can be placed in each one. I think I have decided that I will just change it up every year. For this year I am going to place little activities and 'good deeds' that either the kids can do, or that we can do as a family.

My biggest problem after I finally got it all assembled, is trying to find a place to hang it in the house.....

Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures.....I feel lucky to have even taken them and gotten them up on the blog.....I don't have much time in life for editing at the moment!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

JOY Card

I can't believe that I haven't posted in over 3 weeks.
I have had this card that I wanted so share for quite some time now.

It's really CAS......I've been getting back into that style now for a little bit. It sure makes card making easy.
I have been up to some other Christmas Paper crafts that I am looking forward to sharing soon!
Plus I want to share all the pages from the scrap calendars.....I just need to get with it and take pictures of everything!
And I'm trying really hard to figure out what I want to send out for Christmas Cards this year. It seems like I make a card that I like, and I think, "This is the one," and then I make another card and think that is the one I need to make and send out. Hopefully I will be able to figure it out soon, as I am hoping to get everything stamped and ready to go during Thanksgiving weekend!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
