All Spruced Up!

At least my place is getting that way.  I got a small tree this year (artificial) and decided to put it up...and so far Kit is ignoring it (hooray) and I did manage to get some other decorations up as well.  I have also been on a mission to reorganize my craft studio.  It becomes an absolute disaster area when I get in there and work.  I also have trouble finding things and keep forgetting to use certain embellishments because they are hidden and I don't think of them.

I did do a little bit of crafting this week and I decided to make a card for the Simon Says Challenge.  This one was easy as it is a "anything goes" challenge.  Here is the card I made with one of the new Christmas stamps I got a few weeks ago.  The stamp is called "Getting Spruced Up" from High Hopes stamps, I just love this guy.  I colored it with copic markers (G40, 82, 85 - YR04, 07 - R22, 24, 27 29 - E23, 25, 27 - N3, 5, 7 - Y35, 38 & BG10) and embellished it with clear glaze pen, clear stardust pen and diamond stickles.  The greeting is from a Kaiser craft stamp set and I used lady bug memento ink.  The patterned paper is from the Bo Bunny "Mistletoe" collection.
Well that's it for tonight.  I can't believe we are already into December and I haven't even started my Christmas shopping.  I guess I better get busy and get to work!  I hope to be able to keep posting at least a couple of times a week but it might not be possible.  Take care and have a great weekend everyone.
