Well, Thanksgiving is over, the leftovers fill the fridge…. and all the really good leftovers are long gone.
The Stewart’s have been enjoying a Thanksgiving escape to Broken Bow, Oklahoma for the week. We rented a beautiful cabin for everyone but as luck would have it, Christina had to be at work at 6:00am for the Black Friday sale at Build-a-Bear. Boo.
We were so bummed she couldn’t stay the entire week but if you’ve raised teenagers, you know there comes a time when you realize that family trips are a thing of the past. <sigh> So, through the rain, sleet, and a little bit of snow, Christina & Ginny headed back to Oklahoma City last night. This leaves just Mr. Awesome and I to enjoy the cabin alone. Yeah, that’s nice too…. but we had really hoped for a full week as a family.
I am doing some stamping while I’m here. I always love to bring my Paper Pumpkin boxes with me because they are SO easy to pack and everything I need is in the box. What’s not to love about that? And, this month’s kit is perfect because it’s full of great Christmas cards and that goes along with the Challenge for this weekend!
If you have some fun time this weekend, why not join in on the Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge. It’s an easy one since I know everyone is really busy this weekend.
Show off your Christmas card for this year! We all want to see it!
So, your challenge is…..over the weekend is to share your Christmas Card creations on the Facebook group, and enjoy some great feedback from other Wild Girls. Our group of ‘wild’ stampers is now over 2,700 members! We’re having a great time on this page so join us!
Here’s what I designed for this weekend’s challenge…
My card for Christmas this year was inspired by last week’s Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge. I changed it up a little because I don’t have tons of time to create cards this year. I still wanted lots of bling on my card so I used the Gold Foil Sheets and the Winter Wonderland Vellum Stack. Talk about quick and easy cards but they have a BIG WOW factor to them.
Talk about a short and sweet supply list! The only thing not listed was the Paper Pumpkin kit for November, Mistletoe & Holly. It was a fantastic kit with a fabulous 6-piece stamp set included.
