No word of a lie.............

..............I busted my hump to "make this card in an hour" which is the challenge going on at The Crazy Challenge this week. My usual cards run me from 1.5-3 when 'the kids went a nappin-I went a scrappin' (or card making, but that doesn't rhyme as well) !

Last day of school for my daughter yesterday............boy oh boy! She'll be going to grade 4 in September! EEK. To celebrate the end of school I let her & a friend have a sleep over in our camper trailer that is parked in our driveway. Hooked up to electricity, these girls were good to go 'hard core campin' LOL!
Lord only knows what time they fell asleep.....however, they were jumping on the trampoline at 8 am!!
Good Lord !!

I used my stamp set from SU called Jolliest Time of the Year! It's been a while since I cracked this puppy open. I wrote the "let it snow" sentiments on my puter as this image reminds me of one of my fav. carols "Let is Snow" which is the challenge over at the Christmas Card Challenge (card based on Christmas carol).

oooooooooo in this shot you can see how I added liquid applique to his jacket & hat, as well as crystal effects to his mits, belt & hat.

Other Challenges for my card:
Bah-Humbug- Father Christmas
Sketch & Stash- Sketch & new stash is my BG paper
Winter Wonderland- Strawberries & cream
Christmas Stampin' all Year Long- stitching Faux or Real
Daring Cardmakers- Ice & Snow

Happy Holidays & Hump Day.
