I'm back again - this time for a while :)

Good Morning! I'm home from my trip to Houston. I had so much fun with my friends scrapbooking for lots of hours with a bit of shopping thrown it :) And then I went to my sister's house and got to see my nieces and nephews and I even got to see my youngest nephew play football (he's the kicker and he did a GREAT job!)

Now I'm back home and have lots of catching up to do. Yesterday Amy R released her Christmas stamp sets and they are fabulous! You can see them here. This card uses two of the sets! The ornaments were made with the Build a Holiday set and if you go to the All That Scraps Gallery you will see that the pieces can be used to make lots of different things :)

I made ornaments with mine and used Basic Grey's Wassail paper. I love this set. The colors in my picture came out a little bit bright, sometimes greens are hard for me to get right in pictures, so think of the card with a little subtler color :) The Joy sentiment is from Amy's set Christmas sentiments and there is also a set with Christmas verses so you'll have something to stamp on the inside of your cards. She has covered everything :)

All That Scraps will be starting sneak peeks for the November releases soon, so I will be busy working on those for a while. There are fabulous new sets coming so check back to see what's coming. You can also blog hop on the DT blogs listed on the left.

I got my scrapbooking room somewhat cleaned up (not completely, but definitely better than it was) so I can happily go in there and work now. I was 'misplacing' things and getting frustrated because my desk was so messy, so I'm a happy girl now.

The All That Scraps challenge is tomorrow too, so be sure to check back to see that and try out the challenge, it's a fun one!

See, it's going to be busy for a while, although I did start my Christmas shopping while I was gone and now I have lots of ideas for other things because I had lots of time on the planes to think :)

Okay, I'll stop just rattling now and share our quote for the day, have a fabulous day!!!

Glad you had such a great time on your trip, but also that you're back creating for us again. ;)

This card is beautiful! I love the paper-pieced ornaments and the embossing.

I'm glad you had such a great time! Beautiful card, and how nice you have your stamping room cleaned up. I need to do that again soon, too.
