joyful things...

Happy Friday!!

I'm telling you...December is in full gear for me...last night after work I swung by Ellen's to pick up my recent Black Friday order:)  I picked up some October Afternoon Modern Homemaker:)  You'll see some projects with that fun stuff SOON...I had a nice to chat with Ellen...such a sincerely FAB gal!!

No December Daily today...just too busy...have the pic just no time to slam everything together and I want to e-n-j-o-y the process...

Okie dokie...I have a couple cards to show ya...


I put together several different Jovial patterns...lotsa zig zag stitching..The sentiment is from EAD Designs Fly away with me Stickerz.

I was inspired by Card Patterns 92:


Here's my Echo Park Paper Self-Challenge card #3:


I cheated and added the "Santa Stop Here" last night:)  It is from E.A.D Designs Deck the Halls Stickerz.  Although you can't really tell from the photo, I stitched the blue panel...just love that sweet bird....

Okay, I received an email from my bloggie buddie Sherry about yesterday's Cosmo Cricket blog post...I couldn't believe Julie gave me a shout out for my Mitten Weather Project-a-day:)  Woot wootie woot woot!
