Monday, Monday

I have that song running through my head as it's going to be one heck of a busy Monday, Monday for me! Today I'm volunteering at Abby's school all morning and then this afternoon I have another doctor appointment. I actually have a couple more scheduled over the next few weeks and all of them are in a different city which means I have to do some driving as well. Oh well - things are bound to get better!!

I'm excited about today's Christmas card because I didn't do a bit of stamping! So for those blog readers that want a fast, CA-UTE card, well pay attention!

See - CA-UTE, right? The card is from a Christmas pack by MME. I added a strip of red cardstock and punched one edge with my border punch. The squares were made using my punches. The santa is a 3 dimensional sticker that I got a year ago (yeah, using old product!). I added red Stickles to the berries and holly Stickles to the scallop square. The Merry Christmas is a rub on. It was a fast card to create and I'm planning on making at least 5 more of them today. I don't think I'll add the holly Stickles to the scallop - maybe I'll pierce it or just leave it alone. Sometimes less is more, right?

Be sure to stop by the Christmas Blog - Stampin' All Year Long - to see all the wonderful cards the team members created. Oh and I should mention that the challenge this week was to use a sketch which was given to us by Maria - she's one talented and awesome lady!

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you don't mind, I really could use your thoughts and prayers right now - I've got a few health issues I'm dealing with and I could use all the help I can get!! Please know that I'd really appreciate it and am thankful to have such nice and loyal blog readers!

Michelle,

I will add you to my prayers!!! I am so sorry you are having to deal with things right now!! Health issues are so hard to deal with because you do not want to feel bad, but you just do. When I was a little girl I could never understand the Bible story about Oh my word I am at a loss right now but was it Peter who God had given what they discribed as a crutch in his side for his whole life somthing he had to deal with Health wise, and now I totally understand that story!! Wish I didn't but I do!!!

They say God will not give us more than we can handle and everything he gives us will only make us stronger or help us learn somthing and I do believe that even if at times it feels like we have more on our plate than what we want to deal with!!!

I will be praying for you Michelle I hope you get to feeling better really soon!!!
