A Little Reality Check!!

Read on the computer today it is only 10 weeks until Christmas.  Kind of freaked me out!  Practiacally erasing Sept. Off the calendar with being sick has put me behind the eight ball!!  Usually I have a lot more of my shopping tackled by now!  

But I have a good chunk of my Christmas cards made.  I stamped, coloured and cut out some images over the weekend.  It was so windy on the weekend, blowing across the plains after being the big storm on the coast.  
They were coloured with distress inks and a water brush, since I really don't have a lot of Copic markers!

Today they were made into cards.

The stamps are from MFT/ Die-Namics.  So is the stitched circle.  
The tree die is from Frantic Stamper

Yesterday, I was up and out the house early to take Kirsten to the airport for 5:30am.  She was headed to Dallas curtesy of Subaru.  She is a Subaru ambassador and her airfare, hotel and meals are all paid for.  She seems to be having a good time and is there until Thursday.
So the rest of us hold the fort down with the kids.  Harlee is here with us.  It was quite the feat to get her up, pack lunch and out the door before 8am.  Cooper has joined us this evening, while Tim took Nic to Scouts.

Cute cards. I really must get back to making mine - because 10 weeks is a bit of a wake-up call.
