Congratulations to Mary-Jo, who this week posted her 100th Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge at Techno Stamper! Go check them out if you have not already done so - she does a great job each week :)
Here is my take on the sketch, thrown together during Carter's naptime. I have not stamped in about a week, because I had an itch to rearrange the furniture in my house! I changed my stamp room around and did a major clean-out of supplies. Seriously, I feel like I have TOO much and it is overwhelming sometimes to get started on a project. There are a few things started that I hope to finish this weekend between going to and throwing a birthday party. After that, I can start the year fresh and get into a creative routine again. I miss it!!
This paper is from Michael's, Chatterbox Holiday Sprinkles. The ornament is cut from a set of holiday stencils I found while cleaning. The sentiment is from a company that went out of business a couple years ago, Mandarin Pixie. I love the font, though.
Here's the photo I included in the Christmas cards this year. We took hundreds to get a couple good shots, but I always like the home-shot photos better than the studio shots. They are more realistic in my opinion.
Well, Carter is going to wake soon and it is almost time to get Justin from school. Another day done. Next week, there are only 2 1/2 days of school, then they are on break until January 4th. I am promising Justin a trip to NYC on the train to see the Natural History Museum, so hope that the weather is nice at least one day so we don't freeze in the city!! I can't believe he will be 6 years old on Christmas day.
