Freaking Finally!

Hi stampers and happy Friday (this actually posts on Thursday Wednesday night so if you're reading it then just pretend it's Friday Thursday, ok)!  Note:  See what my mommy brain did there?  LOL!  Welcome to the November edition of the Control Freaks blog hop.

You have just come from the fabulous blog of my fabulous friend Wendy (who I majorly missed seeing this summer having to skip convention and all) and if you haven't don't worry as we make an endless loop.  The theme for this month is my favorite...the holidays!  Can I just say HOW excited I am about the holidays (Halloween-Christmas) this year with my little guy???  And he can't even really enjoy things yet so it's only going to get better!!!!  It's safe to say we (and all his grandmas and grandpas) may go a bit overboard....LOL! And speaking of the holidays I need to share our Halloween pictures sometime.  Stay tuned for that :-)

And I'm super excited because as I mentioned I have finally made some cards I really like and feel like I got my mojo back!  FINALLY!

This card is super simple but I think it's cute!  The little "red" thing is actually a silver sequin that must be reflecting my shirt :-)

My next card is my favorite and what made me feel like I got my mojo back.  I'd made this tag quite a while ago and had it sitting on my desk just waiting to do something with it. I'm so happy with the way this one turned out!

The last card is actually the swap I made for the Control Freaks.  I struggled to get these designed and done with Ian but I did it and I'm glad I signed up for it so I HAD to stamp something!  I hope everyone liked them!  I wanted to do something a little different with the tree stamp and NOT use the punch so customers can see you don't NEED the punch...although it's awesome...but you can use the stamp set without it nevertheless.  I've had this one saved up since September.  And I totally didn't think about how LONG it would take to tie over 20 of those tiny little bows lol!  This is the second version of the card I made and what made the cut.  I'll try to share the first version another day!

In the interest of time I'm still not listing supplies as I can't always remember everything and I'm trying to blog during nap times which are only about 40 minutes, like on the dot….I really wish they were a bit longer!!!!!!!!

Now it's time to hop on over to Julie's blog and see her festive holiday creations!

Happy stamping!
