Christmas is over and I have one day to relax, get my house back in order, and spend time with my kids before work starts back up tomorrow. But there is nothing but smiles today and it makes me so happy to know that all of our needs have been met and we have made it through a difficult year! Sometimes things actually work out and it's a GREAT feeling! =)

So... with much love in my heart I made this card using an absolutely fabulous image from Tiddly Inks! I just love this precious image. Maybe because it reminds me of my own daughter (on a good day when she's behaving of course =) It's a very simple design but the Tiddly image makes the card!

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope everyone had a FANTASTIC Holiday weekend!!

Merry Christmas!

So I finally got a chance to upload and edit a few pictures tonight. Christmas is finally over and it was a fantastic one at that! I feel blessed that in my current situation I was still able to provide a generous Christmas for my 2 little ones. God is good!! Today was a great reminder that family is everything and love encompasses all! Here is one of my last Christmas projects for the year =)

This is a sweet candy/cocoa jar I made this week for a white elephant gift exchange! The image is available for purchase at Whimsie Doodles! (and don't worry.... he made it to a good home =)

Stay tuned for some more great projects the rest of this week! I'm looking forward to getting back to work =) Also... I'm thinking about bringing some tutorials your way starting after the first of the year! HAPPY HOLIDAYS and thanks for looking!

Wow! Christy at Tiddly Inks has done it again with some amazing new digi's this week!!! I have been so busy this month with work and trying to get ready for Christmas.... it will be my first Christmas with just me and my 2 precious little kiddos and it's much harder than I thought it would be! I REALLY wish I had more time to create!! BUT I'm planning on taking a few days of vacation in January and hopefully I can make up for lost time =)

Here is a new card I made using : Little Hopper

Want to know my FAVORITE thing about Tiddly images? You can make the most simple card into something fantastic just by adding a Tiddly stamp =) Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!
