Let The Wild Rumpus Begin!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I hope that you did, as well. And, now, it seems to be time for craziness. I have three weeks left in the semester, and then grading, grading, grading. But, I am very fortunate to have some time off after that (almost a month before the spring semester begins). Other than school, I also am in charge of Sunday school Christmas program. Not sure how I took on this responsibility other than that I am the kids Sunday school teacher. I have had about 2 or 3 of my kids show up on any given Sunday, but should end up with about 12 in the program. Well, whatever happens, at least it will be entertaining.
Amidst all of this craziness, I am really going to work hard to focus on the real meaning of Christmas. I have much to do to prepare my heart for the birth of Christ. I need to be less judging and more forgiving, and that is something I will be working on.
Now, let's set that aside for the moment and check out some cards. First, I have a Christmas card using SPCC combo 128.The snow and sentiment are from SP&Co. stamps. The paper, tree die, and sparkles are from amuse. I also scribbled on the tree with a sparkle pen, but I don't think you can see it. Check out SPCC for ideas and prize info and give these colors a try.
Other card info will be added later, after I get some grading done. Until then, I wish you all the peace and joy of the season that cannot be found in a Black Friday sale or a shopping mall.

Susan this is absolutely adorable! I love your tree with its bling! the joyful cut at the ends is so effective. So neat with the snoflake paper. Divine Love, Samara p.s. I think it is so nice what you did for your pastor with the quilt (I am a retired Institutional Chaplain so I can relate to such a gift of thought.)
