Christmas Joy Cricut Style!

This week has been a marathon to the finish!
It is my last day and then I am off for two weeks!
I am blessed to have a job that allows me time to regroup, recharge, and take a break. 
I love that I will have time with my kiddos and time to do things I don't normally get to.
Like creating. ;)
I have another Christmas card today that uses my Cricut. 
It was a cut from the Holiday Cards 16 CCR exclusive.
I cut the image several times so I could pop up some of the ornaments on the tree.  I also added glossy accents and glitter. I created a bow in the corner with a scrap of Christmas fabric, twine, and a couple of glittery jingle bells. 
Each year I take pics of my furry babies. They are always so patient with me. (And it doesn't have anything to do with the fact that I have them stranded on a tall kitchen chair! LOL)
So away I shoot.
Love them.
It is amazing how attached and in love with them I am. 
Off to find my crazy socks and "ugly" holiday sweater!
Have a wonderful Friday!

Glitter in my Veins!

Maybe not literally,
but I DO love me some glitter!
My card today uses lots of it!
I used this sweet image by Crafty Secrets.  It is from the Couple of Cuties digital stamp set. IT is normally not a Christmas set, but to me they looked like they were ice skating. ;)  I colored it with Copics.  I matted the image with gold glittery card stock from DCWV.  This stuff is so sparkly in person.  The designer paper is also from Crafty Secrets.  Since it is a digital product, I can control how the big the pattern is.  This is great when you are making cards!
My cards aren't complete unless I've got a boat load of "stuff" on them.  ;)  So I made a little arrangement in the corner.  It included ribbon, glittery die cut snowflakes, a pink rose, and gold leaves. 
I LOVED reading everyone's captions for this photo!  I finally decided on this one.
It really "spoke" to me.  ;)
And the answer to that?

PJ day at school! Happy Wednesday everyone!

Ho Ho Ho!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
As much as I tried to recover from this virus I had all week, I still managed to catch up on laundry, clean the house, bake Christmas cookies, and take some Christmas pictures! I guess that means I am on the mend!
How about a little Santa to brighten your day?
There is nothing like facial hair to scream Christmas! LOL!
I used Cricut's exclusive Holiday Cards 13 images to create my card.
I used LOTS of liquid applique and glitter for his mustache and beard. ;)
I added silver glitter, some pearls, and a bit of sweater string tied with jingle bells to finish off my card. 
I have lots of photos to edit, but came across this one in my stash.  For some reason it just cracked me up.  Myla is so full of personality!  We tease all the time that she should be a TV dog! ;)
If you have a caption for this photo, I would love some ideas!
Today is crazy hat day at my school....guess that means it is time to bust out the elf hat with fake ears! Gotta love spirit week!
