Joyful Little Christmas

Well, what is today?  It's only a few days until Christmas, that's for sure.  It's been entirely crazy around here and half the time I don't know if I'm coming or going, let alone what day it is.  We got a contract on our house (we are selling, and going to build a new home), so there have been unexpected showings, lots of phone calls, paperwork, ups and downs, worry and excitement going on over here.  The inspection is today on our current home and if all goes well, we will be moving into a rent house (for 6 months until our new house is built) as early as January 10th (when the buyers want to close)!  And this is on top of preparing for Christmas and numerous doctor appts, home health care and my fabulous nursing skills kicking into high gear since my mom fell and broke her arm.  Hard to believe after living here 14+ years, we will be packing the week after Christmas.  It's certainly bittersweet. 

Anyway, I haven't had much crafting time AT ALL, but I did manage to squeak this card out about a week ago and had yet to even have time to blog about it until now.  I really love it, so I definitely wanted to share it with y'all!

It uses several Reverse Confetti stamps--BRING ON THE MERRY, TINSEL 'N TRIM, LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS, and ARROWS 'N ELEMENTS.  The gray tag is from the Confetti Cuts TAG ME die set.  I have to say I really like this color combo.  It's one of those I started thinking about right before I fell asleep one night and thought it would be fun on a Christmas card.

Ok, well it's highly likely that I won't be blogging too much from now until Christmas at least.  Then maybe I'll share some moving pictures.  Not moving as in emotionally gut-wrenching, but moving as in throw all your 14+ years of crap accumulation into boxes and hope you can find what you packed and where once you get to the the new place (which we don't even have nailed down yet.  I'm truly about to be homeless if this doesn't get worked out!).  Merry Christmas from our house to yours.  I love you all!
