MDS Blog Hop!

Whew!  I bet you never thought you'd hear from me again, huh?  So sorry for the incredibly long absence from my blog.  Besides being super busy I've caught two colds in the last couple of months and I just haven't been on top of things.  :(

No matter though, I'm back now - and even though I'm late posting this - I do have a project for you today!  We'll be showing Christmas ideas for the next few weeks which is perfect, because I finished our Christmas card at 2 am this morning!  I had to stay up late - I'm just not getting anything done with the kids lately.

I am super excited about our card though.  I copied an idea that was featured on several weeks ago.  The second I saw this trifold card I knew that I had to try it for our family card this year.    It took quite a bit of time, but I've realized that it's only because I'm a crazy perfectionist.  And...once I got started I had so many ideas that I knew they wouldn't all fit on one card.  I had decisions to make and let me tell was hard to leave some of those ideas on the cutting room floor.

So, drumroll please...  Here is our Christmas card for this year:

I sent my design to Stampin' Up today for printing and I cannot wait until they get here!  Is it too soon to expect them tomorrow?  Probably.  I'll just have to be patient.  :)  By the way, I'm super happy about the Bulk Buy Pricing!  My address list seemed to grow exponentially over the last year!  How does that happen?

I've got to run and get my kids ready - we were invited to a friend's house tonight, but I will come back and update this post with the supplies I used.  Make sure to check out the other projects from our fabulous team of MDS designers!
