Card Making Fun!

Every year my staff and I get together to make Christmas cards to send to our co-workers! It is a fun night of glitter and glue flying everywhere! This year was no exception!  I saw this card on Pinterest and once the staff saw it - we knew it was the ONE!  We didn't really make any changes since we loved it at first sight.  Check out the link below to see Marj's original-

Here is another shot of the 32 cards we made-

I also wanted to share a picture of the finalize Christmas Advent box I made for my Grandson.  His mother came to visit this weekend and took it home.  I added more bling around the edges and a few store bought made Christmas packages to add to Santa's sleigh and under the tree. 

We bought a Sharper Image foot massager ( for my sore feet) and it turned out to be the perfect size to store the Advent calendar in!!! It even has it's own handle at the top. I decided to decorate it so my daughter could use it to carry the calendar to the island.   I used Graphic 45 paper which is my new favorite paper! I love how it turned out!

Lastly, I wanted to share the cute Birthday cake my family had made for my sister and I to celebrate our upcoming birthdays!  They planned a surprise party that really did turn out to be a BIG surprise since our birthday isn't for another month!!!It was such a fun time.  I am still talking about it!! Since they know both Connie and I love Mickey- They had a Mickey cake made!  It was fabulous- I won't forget that party and all the work that went into it.  They chipped in to give us a spa gift certificate!!  I can't wait to use it!  Thank you to everyone- I love you all!!
 You can check out my sister's blog to see more pictures of our Birthday party.  Rochelle make a framed picture using our names to fill in pictures of Connie and I when we were, ahem, younger!  I love how it turned out!  Thanks, Rochelle for this special gift!!
