7 days till Christmas!

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Can you believe it's only a week until Christmas?? The time has flown by and i'm almost ready! LOL I still have a few more things to craft before next weekend gets here so if I do not get to post for a day or so you'll know why!

So, this past Thursday & Friday we took a trip to Branson, MO because everyone says the Christmas lights are so amazing to see. Shawn booked us a hotel and Kels & I packed up the dog and our clothes and away we went! 2 hours later we were there and so much to see in a short time but only to find out it costs to go see all the beautiful lights....$57 a person. Needless to say, we did not see those lights but did see what was displayed around town. It was all beautiful and I took pictures but my camera was on a wrong setting and all the lights got blurry. I managed a few that were decent which i'll share with you soon. It was a nice trip away!

So, in these last few days before Christmas gets here I realized I needed a few more cards to mail out. I went thru 3 books of postage stamps within a weeks time! LOL My card today I whipped up this morning quick to get out in the mail so the recipient would receive it before Christmas since it was going back to of course, PA! I picked this stamp up at the York Stamp Convention when I went with my stamp girls in October. It is from DRS Designs.

It's a beautiful that I will use more often come next year!

When I got home yesterday the mailman was just heading to my front porch and dropped off 2 unexpected boxes. He brought them in and I thought to myself....I didn't order anything so who are these boxes for? Maybe Shawn ordered something that I wasn't aware of but they were addressed to me from my stamp girls back home and one from my online stamp friend, Tammi Buck. I am gonna share the ones today from some of my stamp girls and the rest tomorrow.
