November OCS and Christmas gift

Wow! December surely brings a busy time of year... i'm still spinning from all the excitement yesterday! hope you all liked my creations for Flutter by Wednesday and Whimisical Wednesdays - The Diedrich Dare.... it's really an honor and awesome to be on such 2 great teams... i hope i do them proud... =D

well, with the whirlwind this past week, most of my creations are still in the making... i'm slowly trying to finish them up... but work has been hectic and kids have been going crazy now that there's presents under the tree... i'm trying to finish up some goodies to be sent off and i still have a mountain of presents to be wrapped... all in all, it's the most wonderful time of year...

I have a few things to share with you today... but first, my baby, DD#2, Alia is turning the big 2 tomorrow... and she is excited as ever.... she's really into Dora the Explorer and really looking forward to her Dora cake... i'll post a pix tomorrow before she digs in... it's soooo cute! lucky girl, she gets to cakes... a mini one tomorrow for her actual birthday and one on Sunday for another birthday celebration...

okie dokie.... on to some goodies.... every month Teri hosts an awesome One Card Swap... so for the month of November, my partner was Brenda.... OMGosh, if you enjoy punch art, you've got to check this girl out! she does amazing punch art... and i'm so happy to have been her partner.... she likes the color lavendar and so i made this sweet purple card for her... the image used is from Inky Impressions.. i cut out the letters for her name with my sizzix dies... punched some butterflies that i added some stickles and rhinestones to... and some prima flowers... i really hope she liked her card... =D
and here's my early Christmas gift that i was soooooooo EXCITED to receive... (eek, don't mind my messy desk).. my lovely sister Linda (by heart) surprised me when she sent me these goodies.... a refill for my copic pen that already ran out of ink... boosters for a little ease of refilling... 2 multiliner pens and 2 new copic ciaos... isn't this a wonderful Christmas gift?!?!? all the things she knows i will use.... and lookie at that cute HB card she made too!!! Thank you Linda!!! you already know what i did with all of this... hehehe! Love You mucho!!!!
