Glad this week is over

What a week since Thanksgiving Day. I started out that morning getting up to start the turkey only to break my toes. So hobbled through the day and I must say it was a wonderful day. Then came Friday and Saturday and I have to cram my broken toes into a shoe. Needless to say when I got home those evenings I went to bed. Sunday I sat down and addressed all my envelopes for the Christmas cards. And when I ran out of cards I still had envelopes. I don't know how that happened. I had such a huge pile. So since then I have had no time for card making or my beloved challenges. My husband has had truck problems and we have been running back and forth to a nearby town to a transmission shop dropping it off. Picking it up. Dropping it off because it still doesn't work and then picking it up again. One good thing out of all that I did not cook at all. We had several nice meals out. Then Thursday I took my mom shopping and came home to start more cards. I decided I needed to have some help with these cards since I will finally be starting my training for the new job starting on Monday.  So I went through my box which is what I slide everything that was on my desk into so my desk is always clean when I'm not home. Found some images and pieces. Then went through my image box. Found a number already colored in there. Next went through the paper bin and found all the scraps of Christmas paper I had left. And lastly I went through my stash of backgrounds in search of something usable in there.  With all that I sat down and started matching things up and slowly started putting cards together. These are totally different than all the others. I brought out all the stuff I never use. My dimensionals, Glossy Accents and ribbon. Oh what fun I had. The snowman card is actually paper I bought 4 years ago. I just added glitter to the scene. He is so cute. Don't know why I didn't use him before this. Well I have a few hours today to put a couple more together and then I start my challenges.
