Dec 25

Happy Thursday and welcome to the charmed life blog. Today was another one of those crazy days.
We were having some computer issues and fortunately we have a friend who handles it for us.
But, it was 4 hrs today and 3 hrs on Tuesday to get the problems corrected.

So needless to say, I didn't accomplish all that I wanted to with my Christmas preparations, but I made headway.

All of my cards are written and addressed and half of them are mailed. Can I hear a big whoo hoo!!

Last night after posting, I ordered a few more gifts online and it was free shipping on some and they all will be here in the next several days.

Tonight I went shopping around 9:00 and picked up a few more gifts. So, can I hear another whoo hoo!! I am almost finished with my shopping. Lol-it's only 8 days until Christmas.

Tomorrow, I will be baking all day since I am in a cookie exchange on Saturday. I am making mini lady-locks. This cookie is my Christmas speciality. I make 20 dozen and give about 3/4 of them away as gifts. My friends and family wait anxiously for this cookie.

I am feeling better and somewhat less stressed about getting the things done that I need to.

So now onto my card for today. I found another challenge group recently. Its the pals paper arts blog . This week their theme was to create a holiday or winter themed card. So I say what is more holiday than dec 25.
This is another one of my Christmas cards. I used the stampin-up Christmas jingle kit to create this card. I have said it before but this kit has a big wow factor.

I saw this card by Nancy Riley and I knew I was going to make it as one of my Christmas cards.

I used old olive and very vanilla paper, real red ribbon and a red nailhead. But everything else is from the kit.

Well, its a wrap for another day my friends. I am still waiting to hear how all of you are handling the busyness of the Christmas season. It's important to encourage one another.


  1. Whoo hoo! That was a big whoo hoo--did ya hear it? Love your DEC 25 card. I'm gonna head on o'er to pals paper, thanks for the heads up.

  2. I'm so very flattered that you liked my Dec. 25 card well enough to case it, Mary! Love your version!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!
