I'm a huge fan of the movie Miracle on 34th Street, and love the scene where Natalie Wood's mom tells her that faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to, so I took that part from a longer sentiment (originally from a mini KaiserCraft set that read "I believe in you") to use on my SFYTT July sketch. I've made a few Christmas cards this month, having been prompted to do so by my favorite local stamp store, Capture-a-Memory. It's a good idea to make a few each month so that the need for Christmas cards doesn't sneak up on you in November, don't you agree?! I've never liked to pick one design and assembly line make multiples of that one design. "Christmas in July" was CAM's ongoing theme this month, for the most part!
stamps: KaiserCraft's Proud mini stamp set; paper: Authentique's Wonder DP, SU's Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Vanilla card stocks; inks: Ranger's antique linen and black soot distress inks; tools: Creative Memories' circle cutter, SU's stocking builder punch (BTW, have you seen SU's mitten bulder punch in the holiday catalog?!)

We had a t'riffic day; I took off a couple hours early from work so that we could enjoy "lupper" with our boys at the local Red Lobster (we don't get there often enough and I LOVE seafood). My DH and crew picked me up at work as the restaurant's on the northwest end of Flint, then returned to my workplace so I could grab my trucklett and we returned home. So far it's been a nice relaxing quiet evening ... no TV, just PB napping and then playing on the PC while I've been re-reading a book on my nook (hey, that rhymes! I'm a poet! You wouldn't know it, but my feet show it ... they're Longfellows!). He's gone to pick up small sundaes for dessert from Mickey D's so I thought I'd jump on the PC to upload today's card I'd made for him. I've been neglecting my paper crafting lately, but I seem to get into reading for a while, sometimes needlework, then switch back to paper crafting, and lately I've been on my reading kick! Gotta run ... he's back!

Enjoy the holiday, folkes, and I hope you're having a blast today (pun intended ... sorry 'bout that!)!
