HYCCT1422 ~love you a latte~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
Today was pre-school day. It was our first day back after Thanksgiving break. The kids were a bit energetic but still cooperative.
We started practicing songs for our Christmas program. They really like to sing. I had them make a gingerbread man for our school Christmas tree. They turned out so cute. I usually buy the packaged kits from Michael's or Oriental Trading. They give you everything you need for the project.
I work with the kids one-on-one for these projects. It's good for their fine motor skills but to attempt it as a group wouldn't work as well. They love doing crafty things and of course I do too (lol)!!
This afternoon I started my Christmas decorating. I had a goal set of where I wanted to be at the end of the day and I met it. The trees will probably go up Friday or Saturday. I put up 3 of them. Then it will be onto mailing my Christmas cards and gift wrapping.
My cookies and candy need to fit into this mix as well so my days need to be organized and full. I will keep you posted on my progress.
Now onto my card for today. This is one I created during the HYCCT challenges on Splitcoaststampers. I never got it posted on my blog.
I used the new "perk up" MFT stamps and dies for this card. 

My card colors are real red, crumb cake and coastal cabana from the Splitcoaststampers CC501 challenge. I was the hostess for that challenge. The layout is an old MojoMonday sketch #322.

 The background paper is from the Stampin-Up "fresh prints" collection. The heart and stripes embossing folders are from Darice.

That's my card for today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. tomorrow will be another busy day. So until next time........God bless.

Stamps: perk up (MFT) Paper: real red, coastal cabana, crumb cake, fresh prints dsp (Stampin-Up) Paper Size: A2 Ink: real red
