Few on Friday

I can not even believe there are only 15 days left until Christmas!  I knew December was going to fly by, but this is ridiculous!!  For those of you who looked at my last post and assumed I am on top of the Christmas game, let me assure you I am SO not lol! Christmas cards....what? Who? I found a bunch of cards I got at Target last year for 1/2 price--the kind that you glue a photo onto. Great, but that means you need a photo--actually many copies of said photo before you can send it out, right? I have done NO baking yet. NO wrapping. Every time I think I am ahead of the game, all these realizations start to set in and I panic, so...let's just move along, shall we?
This week's ScrapTiffany challenge was to use handmade flowers. Remember that Doodlebug Designs paper I got from Scrapbook Barn? Well I also used it to make this layout:
The crumply flower in the bottom left hand corner was made by punching out some scalloped circles and, well, crumpling them, before gluing them together and adding a button center. You can check out some of the other designers flowers HERE.
I have another quick and easy card made from the 3 Scrappy Boys December Trio.
The punch details will be on the Just Imagine Crafts blog tomorrow morning.
And how about wrapping this up with one or two photos of Christmas stuff that DOESN'T stress me out, that actually makes me happy? I love this handmade, glass ornament, my parents gave me a whole set years ago and we still have all but one.
 The advent calendar. I think I made this 2 years ago? The kids LOOOOOVE it. We have a system where they take turns opening the drawer and then have to give the other person one of whatever is in there. This year I hit Party City for a bunch of little toys so we wouldnt be doing candy every night ;)
 And I love this ornament shaped cookie jar. But it is ummm, empty right now so I guess it qualifies as a stress! And on that note, have a great night!
