Happy Monday!

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend!! Mine was wonderful! My Grandma is visiting from Upstate NY, and honestly, I couldn't be happier! My kids were thrilled to spend time with her and we had the best time all weekend. Yesterday we all went to the Museum of Discovery and Science. Such a fun time. My son had been dying to see a 3D documentary "Sea Rex" for a month now and my mom surprised us all with tickets. My son LOVED it, my daughter sat with her head buried in my neck the entire (45 min) movie ;). Then to Cracker Barrel for Sunday Dinner and to look around their shop - that place is just too cool!

Anyway, tonight I've got to get crafting, but today I wanted to share an updated version of my Christmas Cards:

Maybe you remember this post - my Lawnscaping Blog Hop project. I created another sample - and added in my Hermit Crabs, Hermie & Courage. My son was ecstatic! His ideas, after all ;)

Wow, my card really says "welcome to the funny farm" this year, that's for sure! But that's ok.

So, again, I've used Crate Paper's "Snow Day" and "Peppermint" collections and TONS - tons - OF Lawn Fawn Stamps {Critters in the Burbs, Making Frosty Friends, Critters in the Sea, Hats off to You, Bows & Holly, & Smitty's ABCs}. I decided I'll probably leave the girls without the flossy hair. I really liked how it looked - it was SOOOO cute, but it would be alot of work to glue hair on 100 snowgirls.

I've done a ton of stamping and Copic coloring already. Have enough critters (all of them), snowmen/women/children, and sentiments ready to get 16 cards to done so far. I figure if I start now, and cut the images out in between other projects I'm working on. I should get about 50 (my goal) done by November when it's time to take & print my Christmas photo of the kiddies and send them out.

So, that's it for me today. Hope your Monday is nice to you! Have a great one!


  1. Entirely way too adorable, and I agree, very ambitious!

  2. Holy mackerel, that will be a TON of stamping! Soooo impressive!!! The card is adorable, and so are your kids. Glad you had fun with your grandma!

  3. So adorable! I love that you added your pets as part of the family!

  4. You are ambitious to make such intricate Christmas cards, but people are going to love them. They are amazing! Well worth the effort. (Although you may never want to see those stamp sets again after you are done).
