Bears & Boxes & Bows, Oh my!
I must say, this little cub is showing great restraint with the abundance of presents in his midst.
I found this digital image, Gifts Galore in the Bronson and Beaker collection, to be quite adorable.
Certainly a reminder for myself that such patience can be attainable.
It's also, quite to my benefit, reassuring that there are no tangible bits of photographic evidence to reveal of my children rounding the staircase only to find their mother's pajama clad derriere peeking out from under the branches of the Christmas Tree.
I was simply ensuring that all presents were properly sealed and labeled...I swear!
And if they say differently, I will plead that thingy that you can plead and hastily retreat.
Now on to the great and more great news...
Today is another wonderful link up at
Make It Monday!!!!
With our extremely generous Sponsor
Who is offering the winner 5 single digital images of their choice!
You'll be amazed by the inspiration of all the DT's and most importantly,
the outstanding crafters from all around the world who "Oh WOW" us everyday!
Take for example my
PICK OF THE WEEK!
I absolute love ALL kinds of Christmas cards because there are so many amazing holiday embellishments that one can include on the card, but this clean and simple and elegant card really caught my eye.
Not to say that other's didn't, they were ALL incredible and the choice was not made easily, but this card just called out to me.
If you're in a pinch for time, but scoff at the thought of, I dare say it, "buying" your cards,
this is perfect for time management, beauty, holiday wishes, and handmade, all rolled into one!
Take a gander at her card and get a giggle too!
Thank you Zoe, from This Little Place, for all the inspiration.
NOW...(If you're still hanging in here with me)...
I get to help make the really great announcement that's had me doing a dance, quite like the potty dance, but a more dignified and big girl version.
We have a brand spankin' new DT to welcome to our crew of ladies at
Make It Monday and here she is....
(And the crowd goes wild!)
She's certainly NOT new to these stomping grounds, as she's been an EVER devoted commenter and participant in the challenge link ups, but it's so nice to actually get to harass, I mean work, with her and all the other incredibly funny and creative ladies at
Welcome aboard, Karen!
Thanks so much for stopping in and I hope you've found a smile somewhere in this post...
But just incase you haven't, here's a little cartoon my husband sent me. He's always sending me funny images to encourage my doodling imagination, plus, it's right up my twisted humor alley.
Hugs and Happy Stamping,
