Christmas Cocao with many circles by Stampin Up and me

Good morning .

I love adding beautiful Designer Series Paper to my cards. Many of them are so SO versatile and gorgeous. I am not sure about you, but I always have a hard time gluing one side to my card. Stampin Up offers 2 sided Designer Series Papers and you can pick which side to use.. The 2 sides look always so stunning together, so they are great to use on almost any cards.

Anyway, Today I had about 10 minutes to put this card together. Between dropping my son of at school, wrapping Christmas presents, feeding the kids and going through my closet to find That perfect dress for the Christmas Party I am going to tonight with my sweet hubby. He was gone for about a week. He worked about 13 hour days.. seriously.. wow.. Out in the snow.. Not my thing as you know me to well.

Still haven't found That perfect outfit yet.. maybe I don't even have it. I didn't even have time to go out and get something. Shopping with 3 kids... Nah..

It's about a year ago I had to dress up for something fancy..
Oh well.. he got a different job, so maybe I can wear the same dress as last year.. Nobody will know right.. I borrowed the dress from my dear friend Darlene.. Everytime I wanted to give it back to her.. she was like.. No you keep it. You looked great in it.. So.. okay then.. I guess that's what I am wearing tonight :)
But I do have to iron it.. I think.. We'll see.

So this week I was home and I had to deal with our 3 lovely kiddo's. Who had the stomach flue, the littlest one was teething, they wanted to wrestle with me (I know.. is the daddy thing, but I went along with it :) shoveling lots of snow, making dinners and reading many stories... cleaning, cooking, writing our Christmas cards, doing the laundry, stopping the kids from attacking each other :) yip I was busy too.. So happy he's coming back though.. enough for this week!

Well..Not much to ad to this card info. As you can see I used a lot of different circle punches. I think I used all the sizes that Stampin Up has for sale..
Love it!

Have a great weekend dear you.

And if you have a Christmas Party to go to... I hope you will feel happy in your dress :)
