Hot, Hot, Hot!

Good morning friends!  I can't believe it is almost the end of the week again!  Tomorrow is a half day for Kyler and then two glorious weeks off!  I can't wait for Christmas Break! 

Today I get to share with you a new image from Meljen's Designs.  This one is call Holiday Chili Pepper.  From the time I saw the image I knew I wanted to make Todd's Christmas card with it (shhh...don't tell!).  It reminds me of the time we spent in Cabo this last spring.  I'm not sure why it does but it does.  I used paper from MME's The Merry Days of Christmas pack and tried to focus on the blue in the patterned paper as I was so reminded of the water from our trip (which was a cruise).  While the weather was not hot on the boat it sure was beautiful on shore.  We definitely plan on going back to Cabo to vacation one day (sooner rather than later I hope!).  Oh, and the challenge for this week is anything but a rectangle shaped card.  I don't get outside of my comfort zone when it comes to card shape so I just went with a square, 5x5, card. The layout for this card is from the month long Sketches by Carly challenge. 

Anyway, all three of today's new releases are super fun so make sure you hop on over HERE to check them out and see what the rest of the design team has to show you!  I'm also entering this is 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge this week which is Christmas Cards. 

OH!  I almost forgot to announce the winner of my black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.  So, without further ado...Jerusha, you win!  Just contact me and I'll get you the code for your $5 coupon!  Congrats girl!

Thought of the day:  Get up and go.  Take a chance and be strong.  Today is your day...go for it!
