When Pigs Fly

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! I spent a day shopping yesterday - almost all day long! My best friend and I got an early morning start and went to several little boutique type stores. I have the bulk of my Christmas shopping done and was just looking for any little items that might "jump out" at me as being the perfect gift for someone. Unfortunately I didn't come home with anything other than dog food, cat food, and dog treats! It was still fun and the weather was beautiful!
We enjoyed lunch together in a restaurant I've been wanting to try for a while. I got a Reuben sandwich and it was delicious!

After I got home I wrote out the grocery list and got all of that shopping done. Brock was happy with leftovers for dinner so I was able to sit down and work on some cards. The first one I want to share with you uses another one of this week's new releases. Did you get a chance to see the new images at Squigglefly? Aren't they fabulous? I chose to get off the Christmas theme for a bit and used the new Wanda image by Suzanne Urban

(click to enlarge)

I love this image! I printed out fairly large because it's got the sentiment on it already and looks like a completed front! I colored with Copic markers and colored pencils. I added glitter to her sprouting wings.

I plan on getting a lot of card making done today. Will most definitely finish up my Christmas cards and then I've got to make more birthday cards, and I'm already seeing Valentines on blogs - YIKES!

Enjoy your day, and thanks for looking!
