Happy Monday!

Just a couple cards to share with you today.
I worked a long weekend so I haven't been able to be here the past few days. I hope everyone had a really wonderful Thanksgiving!

This is my first time using Verve Stamps. I bought a few sets a couple weeks ago and this was the first chance I had to get them inky.
Supplies Used: Paper Making Memories
Stamps: Verve

I re-purposed the Limelight sketch from a couple weeks ago for this one.

That's it for today! Have a great Monday!!

Good Times...

and Crate Paper
I absolutely love this new vinyl rub on set! So much I ordered two! One in brown AND One in Black. That's one of the great things about EAD Vinyl Rubons..

You can also custom order any design you want in any size you want!
Something else important to know about EAD Vinyl Rubons..
They are acid free, so they are completely safe for you scrapbooking projects
Vinyl doesn't rub off
If you've looked back at some of your pages that are a few years old you might notice that the regular rub ons tend to rub off or stick to the plastic page protectors in your albums
not so with vinyl!!
If you're looking to try them out stop by the

Not too much new here, just working through the weekend. I'm proud to say I officially started Christmas shopping. I think I'll be doing a lot of shopping online this year, and there won't be much of it. Everything the boys want is over $100. I remember when they were little and that much practically filled up the space under the tree. Now it takes up less space than a 3x5 card..LOL..think I-Touch.

by using the code VETERAN at checkout

I keep trying to get my self motivated to start working on Christmas presents,
but so far it's not working. Every year I get to about this moment and think
"holy crap! I better get started"
So we got out the Christmas Decorations to help with the motivation.
Yes, I know it's still two weeks before Thanksgiving
why not?
We also went to see the new Christmas Carol (the one with Jim Carrey) yesterday in 3D at the IMAX. It was pretty good! It just amazes me what can be done with computer animation.
Have a wonderful Day!
