Oh by gosh by golly...

it's time for mistletoe and holly...

Well it was bound to happen sooner or later... yep, it snowed yesterday. And no my world didn't end, I even made it home from work without slipping or sliding around on the road so it's all good. Though if this is all the snow we get I will be a happy camper. :)

So I bet you want to find out who the lucky winner is for this past week's Sweet November blog candy... alright, alright here we go... drum roll please...

the winner chosen by random generator is....

Mary(OhioMary)

Congratulations Mary! Email me at pete_danger@hotmail.com with your mailing addy and I will get your goodies right off to you!

And thanks to everyone for playing along. There will be more candy fun to come just after Christmas so be sure to check back because I promise you won't want to miss out on what's coming up next! :)

Okey dokey, onto today's card... it's another slightly altered Gorjuss Girl. All I did was draw some little hands for her so it would look like she's peeking around the tag, nothing big. Once again a pretty simple card, especially since the tag that looks like I did a bunch of hand stitching and paper curling is really a pre-made image. All I had to do was cut it out and glue it on which is great and I think it has been in my stash for at least six years so I'm really glad it has finally found a home. LOL ;)

I have today off and with the snow on the ground you know I'm holing up and getting crafty. Yeah!

Amy, this is just too cute. Love the banner she's holding. I have got to get some of this Gorjuss Girls!!! When I remember them my spending money is always alittle short because of spending it at places like The Greeting Farm, OOZAK and so many more. I wish you could buy them in sets like you could when they first came out!! Oh well just more to add to my wish list. I love coming to your blog and seeing all your creations!!
Hugs,
Angela

It actually tried to snow here Saturday night. Little flurries. SUPER cold here! It's supposed to be like 17 degrees when I go to work tomorrow morning. :/ Daytime high will still be below freezing. I though YOU were the one supposed to be getting these temps! ;)

The square card is just perfect. Love the felt and the buttons.
