What's the Buzz?

We are getting our first "big" snowfall and I am thrilled!! I hung some lights today that look a lot like my blog header! : ) I love colored lights!

I finally decided on a design for my Christmas cards tonight. I normally create about 2 or 3 different designs so that I don't get "bored" when making my holiday cards. This year, however, I'm on a strict time AND money budget : ) so I have decided to stick with one simple design. I did not add any "chunky" embellishments so that I will not have extra expense at the Post Office. I really like how they turned out. Tomorrow when I am snowed in!! (yahooee!!) I will begin to put them together. I will post them later this month. : )

Here is a card I made using my Crafty Secrets Clear Stamps called "Bug's Life". I just love this set - check it out there are some really funny bugs doing really funny things like perhaps getting ready for the "Ugly Bug Ball" right, Dad??!! (*wink)
I apologize for not including a complete supply list but I don't have access my supply list tonight. If you are curious about any of the supplies let me know and I will update the post.

Calendar Pages

Finally December is upon us! Thank you for stopping by to see my "old" calendar pages. I loved my Calendar so much this year that I have re-ordered another set for next year! The calendar pages are approximately 4.5" square and fit on a regular CD case that you fold out to create an easel. It is a sensational idea! I got the CD case and pre-printed calendar pages from a company called Touche' Rubber Stamps.
It finally feels like winter in the north woods of Wisconsin. The temperature is only 22* with a "wind chill factor" of only 16* brrrr! There is a little snow in the forecast but not enough for me! I say bring it on!! : )
Have a super day!! and thank you for stopping by my ant hill.

November Calendar Page

Hello November!

I just love the papers I used for this page. They are retired Stampin' Up papers and like so many of the retired SU papers I'm really sad to see them go! The image is a retired TAC image (is there a pattern here! LOL).

I enjoyed November! I hope you did too. Happy belated Thanksgiving friends : )


October Calendar Page

You have heard the expression "it's a dog's life" : ) maybe we should be saying it's a House Mouse' life!! bye bye October.
