Good morning everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was very busy.  We finally got our tree on Saturday afternoon and decorated it yesterday afternoon.  I am behind schedule on everything this year! The house was decorated Thanksgiving weekend but we got our tree a week later than normal and I'll tell you what it was slim pickens!! We have the cutest little Charlie Brown tree, haha.

I spent most of yesterday working on some homemade crafts for teachers gifts and hope to get them wound up tonight when I get home from work.  I'll be back with pictures- so far I'm very happy with what I've accomplished- and it's only Monday. I still have until Friday, hahaha. No procrastinating here.

Todays card is for Sunshine Mondays which features a stamp from Sunshine & Giggles.  This week I used the stamp entitled Snow Day!  Doesn't this remind you of your childhood.  My card is also for 2 challenges.
The first is the sketch challenge at the Midnight Madness blog.  They provided the sketch as well as theme which is winter wonderland.  The second challenge is over at Stamp Something.  There theme is also Winter Wonderland.

I just love this dp by Paper Studios. I bought several sheets of it last year.  It goes so well with this theme.

Be sure to visit the DT's blogs for there dose of Sunhine.  This is the current design teams last week with us and they have all been wonderful to work with! Their talent and time is so appreciated.  The new team will be on deck in January with our new line and a new illustrator so be sure to stop and visit Sunshine & Giggles.

Have a great day!
