Scrap it with a Song

I hope everyone has been enjoying the Christmas season.
  It all goes so fast!
This month at Scrap it with a Song 
we are celebrating with Christmas songs. 
 This week you get to choose your favorite song to play along.

I chose Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer.

This is not my favorite Christmas song, actually my all time favorite is Silver Bells!  However my mom loves it and when I was looking through last years pictures that I have not scrapped, I found the perfect picture that made me think of the song.

I used the sketch at Let's Get Sketchy.

That is my sweet Mom, not really drinking the beer but always willing to pose for a great picture!
I hope you join us this month for our Christmas challenges, we are having a DT call too!

Merry Christmas ~ Shelley

One last Christmas card....

Well maybe...
Where does the time go! I can't believe it is so close to Christmas. Why do I always have so much left to do at the last minute.  I still haven't bought my husband anything and I need to buy my son one more present.  On a positive note, I did get my cards done extra early this year, thank goodness.

I love the Ornament bundle! These cards came together really fast.  Stampin Up will be offering more great bundles of stamps and framelites in the upcoming Spring catalog!

Merry Christmas ~ Shelley

Scrap it with a Song "Shake up Christmas" - Train

It's Scrap it with a Song challenge time and we are celebrating Christmas this month!! I just love Christmas songs!
 This week our inspiration is "Shake Up Christmas" by Train.

We are also having a DT Call until the end of December, 
check out the details on the blog.

I came across this picture of my son, nephew and our Golden Retriever Ginger and knew I wanted to use it this week. The large photo was taken about 12 years ago and the small one just last year.  Sadly we lost her this past summer, she was such a good dog.

I used the sketch at Let's Capture These Sketches.

15 days til Christmas

Can you believe it!! There is always so much to do during this time, I wish it would slow done so we can enjoy it more. I love hearing all the Christmas carols on the radio. The weather isn't really making it feel like Christmas though.  It has been rather warm and raining for three days now! 

I did get all of my cards addressed this weekend -woohoo! Now to get them out in the mail.

This is one using the Ornament bundle,  my favorite this season, and the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree, which is another great set to have.

Have a great day~ Shelley

Hi! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  Mine has been busy.  I am back to work full time, it has been a bit of an adjustment.  It was nice having extra time to get things done around the house, but back to the real world now! lol  Even though it has only been two months. Short and sweet.

I made this card last week, after I saw one similar on a blog.  I really like it and would like to make a few more.

Thanks for stopping by ~ Shelley

Snow Much Fun!

Hi! Happy December! I love this time of year, it makes me feel like a little kid again. We have been having very warm weather for December though, it doesn't really make it feel like Christmas is just around the corner.

I made a couple more Christmas cards. This is Snow Much Fun stamp set. I used a sponge to make it look like snow drifts. Here is a link for directions to a similar one. 

Have a great day ~ Shelley
