Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #146 - Snowmen

Happy Tuesday! Only one week left before Christmas! Can you believe how fast it snuck up on us? 
This week at Sassy Cheryl's we are getting our "Frosty" on with the challenge theme Snowmen, brought to you by our very own Crafty Cathy.  Great choice girl!! Perfect, especially for all of you lucky enough to have snow right now. Us Southerners will just have to pretend. ((*sigh*))
 This week's challenge will run for 2 weeks so we can take a little break for Christmas. 
That gives you a little extra time to join in on the fun. 
This little snowball of fun is one of Cheryl's new Snowmen. Isn't he adorable? 
He is Fa La La La La Snowman and you can find him HERE.

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

I made this card as a Birthday card for my Sister, Pam. She turned 44 yesterday and I would just like to remind her that she will ALWAYS be older than me. HeeHeeHee!!

"I'm in Love, I'm in Love...and I don't care who knows it!!!"

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #145 - Feeling the Love

Good Tuesday morning Blogland! It's time for another challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's and it's my turn to pick the theme,  I'm such a Lucky girl!! I have chosen the theme Feeling the Love. Afterall, isn't that what this time of year is supposed to be about? Cheryl has soooo many images that can be associated with love. This little cutie was the one that caught my eye this week. Sassy Sally and her Favorite Blankie  just jumped out at me. Isn't she a doll?!? I think her little bear slippers look so comfy. I couldn't decide if I wanted to make them pink or brown, but as you can see, the brown won in the end. Lol
I paired her up with a new pack of paper I found from Martha Stewart. ( I can hear my Hubby now..."More paper?!?") I couldn't help it...

Last week's White Christmas really did challenge me. Thanks for making me step out of my comfort zone Jackie. I really enjoyed the entries from you crafty gals, so glad you had time to join us. This weeks challenge is gonna be a fun one so come on back and play again. Looking forward to seeing your take on what "LOVE" means to you.
Happy Crafting Y'all!!

Holiday Happenings

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday #103

It's time  to play along with Cheryl again in her Show Me Thursday Challenge. I know the Holidays are a busy time of year and these past few weeks have been CRAZY! 
This past Thursday my Son Jackson  and his chorus class had a performance at one of our local theaters. They went before the show and  sang on one of the staircases for people as they entered. It was so beautiful. 
 After the performance, they got to stay and see the Christmas show. 
This is a pic of my oldest, Savannah and her LITTLE brother, Jackson. Lol 
 (and my Grandson, Landon in that very round belly)

Here's a pic of the group before the show. 

I have also been working on my Daughter's baby shower invitations.
 I FINALLY finished them up on Saturday....whew! 

Here are the stacks before assembly. 

I know things are hectic right now, but try to pop on over and join in. 
You just might win a free Sassy Cheryl's image.
