Sassafras Lass Amplify!!!

This month I have the opportunity to work with a really fun and different kit at LPS! Sassafras Lass Amplify is bold, colorful, and unexpected! I have four kids ranging in age from seven to fourteen, and this kit is perfect for all phases of childhood, or anything that screams just plain old F.U.N.!

Here is what I did:

More Cards

I'm attempting to make all my Christmas cards this year, and have been slowly plugging away at the project. I may have them all finished by Christmas!!

On a recent trip to Michael's I found a pretty stack of paper by Brenda Walton (K & Co). They were so pretty with a few sheets of sentiment cards, and some really charming looking Victorian Santas! That helped get me into the mood to do these cards. I'm using ribbons and embellishments from my stash, too!

Here is another batch I did yesterday when it was pouring rain! I managed to use up almost all of the Cosmo Cricket paper I had left over from last year, and some of the Basic Grey, as well! The only problem is the cards got more and more simple as the day wore on!

Now, I just pray they all make it through the mail!

The kids at the tree farm

Last Saturday, we managed to go to the tree farm, and pick out our tree. It's been so busy with Joey's soccer tournaments every weekend day! Our tree looks like all of our trees, It's wider than it is tall. Anton talked us into getting a blue spruce, because he's wanted one for a few years. If we don't end up with major irritation from the extremely sharp bristles, it will be a miracle!!

I did manage to get a few decent photos of the kids, which may end up in our Christmas cards this year!
