tis the season


'tis the season, are you ready?  I'm not.  And I don't quite know how I feel about that!  I mean, with all the hats I wear, it would take a 50 gallon cowboy hat to make me feel I had it together. But I've got one beautiful mantel decorated in this card for today's on color challenge SCS.  I knew I wanted to use this scene I've been working on for the past few days...I love the process of coloring and carving the pieces of paper...something about it is so very relaxing.  But in the end, it doesn't get my house cleaned or the gifts wrapped or the decorating done!!!   I think I need to make a list and check it more than twice!

If you'd like to read the details of my card, pop over to my gallery on SCS for the specifics. And I'm wishing you much success at the getting it all done thing!

I want to thank my friends for the recent awards.  I haven't checked into what is required, but I will.  It is an education to even carry them over to 'my place'!

I love your mantle and all the wonderful little stockings Susan!! I hear ya on being so busy! the important thing is to celebrate the season - remembering that it's all about the gift of the birth of our Saviour not about material gifts!

This is so lovely with all the cut out stockings. I am definitely not ready either... it all kind of snuck up on me this year.
hugs, Jami
