January Blahs ....

I took down my Christmas tree last night (finally!). Not gonna lie ... my house just seems pretty empty without it. For some reason this year I was DREADING Christmas ... starting in about March. Seriously??? I have NEVER done that before!! But once I got my tree up, my usual love for all things "holiday" starting to kick in. I still have to pack all the ornaments and such up (which is a CHORE!)! At least I have a group of friends coming over tomorrow night for book group, so that should liven things up around here!

I have committed myself to sending birthday cards to everyone in my family this year. I should qualify that ... I will be trying to send to everyone on my hubby's side of the family, and to my immediate family (which is considerably smaller than my hubby's). All told, looks like I will be attempting to send out at least 150 birthday cards this year!!

I am off to a good start! I've sent out 6 already. This is one I did for my uncle. His birthday is tomorrow!! I hope he has as much fun getting it as I did making it. There are SO many fun possibilities with the Best Catch/Catch of the Day Bundle!! It's my new favorite for making "dude" cards!

Stamps:  Best Catch, Crackle Paint
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, Wood Texture DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends
Accessories: Catch of the Day Thinlits, 5/8" Burlap Ribbon, True Gentlemen Buttons, Linen Thread

I've got a busy couple of days ahead, so I need to get moving!! Unless, of course, I could get Mary Poppins to come over and help me with her magical skills!! That would make things go MUCH more smoothly!!

Hi Wendy, saw this card on Pinterest and had to come look in person! :) So glad I did, this is awesome! My uncle used to fish and he would have loved this card, I'm sure yours will!

Wishing you all the best for 2019!
