It's beginning to look like Christmas

in my craft room! I started to dig out alot of my holiday stash to get me into the mood. I'm so glad the weekend is finally here so that I can do some serious crafting. I really have to get my act together and get motivated in making my projects for my holiday party. I have to work myself up into the mood cuz that's when I start to make better projects...anyone out there like me? I like to race with the clock - lol! Not really, but that's how it usually turns out. I guess I work better under pressure.
So, while digging for holiday stamps in my stamp drawer, I came across this cute but strange looking elf (is he an elf?)...he's so wierd that he's cute, to me anyway. I had alot of fun putting color on this little guy and of course, went with non-traditional christmas colors. Do you likey? up close...
I don't make many square cards, but thought it would be fun. This card is a 5X5 card.
Thanks for letting me get into the christmas spirit even before Thanksgiving. I really do love Thanksgiving. My favorite is the pumpkin pie and pumpkin ice cream...and pumpkin frappuccino...yummy!
Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday. I'm going shopping with my sister and BIL at the Festival of Giving at the Ward Center shops. Hope I find stuff for me!
Hey! thanks for coming for a visit. I appreciate you!

cute card Teri- hope you get a lot of crafting done this weekend!

Since you like pumpkin, I have to share the best thing- it's an ice blended pumpkin latte from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf- it's like you're drinking a pumpkin pie- so AWESOME and way better than Starbucks (IMO) I'm glad I discovered it this year, I'm trying to abstain so I only had it once so far, but will probably go and get another one before Thanksgiving. Anyway, if you can, give it a try- it's so delicious!

Take care and have a great weekend, how was your first furlough friday?

Hi Teri - Wow! Love the colors. Non-traditional like you said, but it works. So Christmas-y with the icicles and snowflake accents.
