Scrap Christmas Card



So I hang out at Scrapstreet, and a bunch of us are exchanging Christmas cards, which frankly, is one of the reasons I like to hang there. It's friendly! I made this card for those girls. I would normally make a card with my kids and stuff, but since they just know me, I figured I would just do me. BECAUSE the card is just going to be from me anyway!

It is hard to pick a photo. It is hard to take a self-portrait. I used dd's method. Hold the camera in the air and just shoot a bunch. I decided this one was the best for the time being. I mean who ever really likes any picture they are in?

Let me say as it is Thanksgiving that the thing I am thankful for today is family. Yes, corny, but true. The regular day to day life of family living! Like knowing that dh has coffee for me every morning. Or that ds is going to thump-thump-thump down the stairs. Or dd will come in still sleepy eyed. Ah, even on a holiday, they are still the same! LOL!

Tangie Baxter is having 30% off her yummy digi stuff this weekend so click on her blinkie over there and check it out!

CottageArts.net is having 40% off I believe...so check out their sale, too. Click on their blinkie. Julie Meade has released some great new kits!

And finally to Princess Lala's question...who are your five favorite authors?
You know...I don't read by author usually. Mainly I read alot of autobiographies and biographies. I'm curious about what made/makes famous folks tick. What separated them from the rest of the folks?
But I do love:
John Grisham
Nora Roberts
David Baldacci
Beth Moore (Christian books)
Max Lucado
So there you have it! TFL!

Oh found this on Melissa's blog so I took the test myself...
Gummy Bears

You may be smooshie and taste unnatural, but you're so darn cute.

I love your card, it's so nice and festive but I agree - it's so hard to take self portraits! I'm short so that means my arms are relatively short which makes it really hard to take photos like you did. So I've come to know my camera's timer very well, i just figure out where it should be for where I'm going to be (this can take some testing, lol) then I set the timer and reset it for each pose till I get soemthing I'm happy with.
Anyways, love your blog and love the little quiz you did... gummy bears huh? :-) Have a great day!

Aww I think your photo (and card) turned out super!! I love the LO you did and the little gummy bear blurb was too cute : ))

Glad you had a good Thanksgiving.

Love the Christmas card! LOL at the Gummy Bears, I need to take that quiz, too!

Love your LO! It is hard to take a good self-portrait. I have like ZERO pics of myself because I am usually behind the camera (just the way I like it!)

I have next to NO pictures of myself because I look AWFUL in them! Your LO and your card are fantastic, though!
I'm just as corny as you are. What I'm thankful for ... is family. We didn't get to be with family this year and I was SO upset! Treasure them!
