It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..



Hello my sweet friends.
I hate to say it but I still don't have all my decorating done.
I am one to usually get it all done in one day.
 But not this year!!



I will get a little bit more done today. I have been pulling
out one box at a time.  Enjoying and taking this decorating business
nice and slow.  Next on my list is to get all those cards I made in the mail.



*****




That very talented Ros is our host this week over at
City Crafters and has given us this lovely photo for inspiration.
isn't it pretty. 



So I made a Tag..  I really should have made another card.
What was I thinking.



And I found this black and white vintage photo off
of Google.   I think it goes perfect for the look I was going for.



You know what to do if you want the low down on
this challenge.





Well I have another box calling my name so
I better get off this computer.

I do hope you have a happy week my friends
And I really do appreciate all your kind comments.

Hugs~

Cute, cute snowmen and your card is so lovely. Yeah, I need to get back to the decorating...what is it about staying away from the computer. I need to move my laptop out of the kitchen...too accessible!! Hugs!!

Such a pretty tag Linda! You've been busy with your card making...it's no wonder you haven't had time to get all your decorating done! Ah...home made cards are the best!!! You will get one from me from Costco! Lol!

Linda, we don't even have a tree yet!

Your tag is so beautiful. I love that image and the red really pops.

I think I need to find a snowman like the first photo - he is so cute :o)

How ever you manage to create such beauty,I will never know! I'm always in awe of your gorgeous vintage style! Enjoy your leisurely decorating, I'm afraid the mine probably wont be done for at least another week and the Christmas cards.... Might end up making New years cards again this year instead lolol ! x

I have not done any Christmas cards this year. No crafting, no sending. This will be the first year ever that I haven't sent out Christmas cards. It makes me kind of sad but I just haven't had time.

Have fun decorating my friend. I like those snowmen!

The cute little snow men are adorable, and hopefully you'll show more of your decorating when you are done. I'm grateful our tree is up, though for how long with a mischievous 2 year old and cat who loves to pluck off every ornament - is another thing!! :-)
Your card, is beautiful, love the vintage appearance, and how crisp your sentiment is.
