Three trees

Good morning! What a cold, snowy, foggy day it is here! YUCK!!!!! AND I had good intentions to get lots of things done today - guess I will have to tackle my "inside job list" instead!!!! 

Here are 2 cards I made using the Unity stamp set called Christmas Eve Chowder.  I bought this set last Christmas & totally forgot I had it until I saw someone's card using the adorable penguins! You know you have too much stuff when..... LOL!!!!!! 

I wanted to create clean & simple cards that would be easy to replicate.  Needless to say, cutting the trees six times was not so easy! Well...just time consuming!  The trees are stamped onto designer paper TWICE, then cut out & popped up.  I used some pink bakers twine for the top one and some gold cord that was from an old jewelery pouch I found in my drawer when I was decluttering!  The sentiment is from the Unity stamp set too.  I added a little drop of stickles to the star and that's it! Clean & Simple!!!

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge - Clean & Simple
Clearly i Stamp - Clean & Simple
Crafty Catz - Recycle or Upcycle (gold cord)
Fussy & Fancy - I love Christmas
Jingle Belles - Anything Goes
Pause, Dream, Enjoy - Forgotten stash (stamp set)

Thanks for popping by! I hope you are staying warm wherever you are (or cool if you are on the other side of the globe!!!)

WHOA!!!!! Where did the time go???

I was scrolling down to the bottom of my blog yesterday and saw THIS:

 Ok, so big deal right???  I have had Blogoversary candy contests in the past, but get a few new followers just for the candy....but they never stick around!  It is sad, but it excites me to see the HUGE numbers of visitors for those few days! AND it excites me to give away some goodies!! I'm feeling generous again, so will think of a contest for you all!

 I thought about it for a second, and thought, "hmm, this must be year 3"......until I looked at my very first post.....2007!!!!!!!!! WHAT??????????????    FIVE YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Holy snappin'!!!! Honestly, where did the time go????? Five years I've been blogging?? That is CRAZY!!!!I'm still shaking my head!! WOW!

So, here's what I'm going to do:  IF you are a loyal follower of my blog already, leave your name in INLINKZ below.  If you are not a follower of my blog - please become a follower.

(here's a badge for your blog if you want it!! THANKS to NIKKI for making it for me - and my blog header!!! You're the BEST!!!!)

 I am going to be looking over the next 33 days to who comments the most.  I will then take the Top 10 commenters and put their names in a draw.  That person will get a GRAND PRIZE!!!!  THEN, I will take EVERYONE who put their name into Inlinkz and draw FIVE names to win more prizes!!!!!

So, I will be giving away SIX prizes - WOW!!!! Not sure the prizes yet but I guarantee they will be AWESOME!!!!!   IF I get a chance to collect goodies and take pics I will post them here!!!  This will be on top until the end of my Blogoversary so PLEASE scroll down to see my recent posts!!!  Thanks!
