Napping Santa

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog on this Thanksgiving weekend 2019.

Hope you made it through the Thanksgiving celebration and the Black Friday sales. We didn't go out to do any shopping yesterday. But I am going to run to Michael's this morning to pick up some plastic scrapbooking storage cases. They are a good price and you can use a sale coupon to buy them.

I have started using those to store my preschool crafts for the month. That way I will have each month of the school year separated and ready to go for next year.

I am also going to start my Christmas decorating today. Well first all the Fall decorations have to come down. My plan is to get Christmas at least started and then do a bit each day.

We also talked about gifts yesterday when we were visiting with my son. None of us need anything so we discussed scaling back a bit and just do one gift each. I won't do that for my grandsons but maybe it's a good idea for the adults. We never really came to a decision on it so I guess I will talk about it more to my daughter-in-law since she was the one who brought up the subject.

Now onto my card for today. I decided to make an inside Christmas scene and I used this "Santa Napping" die from CottageCutz to create my card. He is tired after a long night of Christmas deliveries (LOL)!! Even his little puppy is exhausted!

For the wallpaper, I used Stampin'-Up cherry cobbler designer paper. The wood floor or carpeting is also designer paper from Stampin'-Up -  the "festive farmhouse" collection. He is napping in his favorite lounge chair.
My sentiment is from an old Stampin'-Up set "wandering words". I stamped it and then put a frame around it to resemble a wall decoration. Scattered a few stars to complete my card.

Well, that's it for me for this post. Until next time...…..God bless.
