Good News!

Remember these cards?

Smile!!!
Cat Rule #377

They were all made with images from the website http://www.squigglefly.com/, and I'm happy to tell you that as of 9am (CDT) this morning, the website is live! Woot! Be sure to take a look!

I have been busy putting up Christmas decorations, so I haven't had any time to stamp. The good news is the decorations are out, and all I have left is the tree. So far it has about half of the lights on (note to self: buy pre-lit tree next year). I'm hoping to finish the lights tomorrow and then start the ornaments. It's a 9 ft tree, and there is not an empty branch to be found when I'm done with it, so it takes some time. I'll be sure to share pictures when I'm done. :)

In the absence of a card, I want to give a shout out to Michelle W. , who gave me this award:


And Tangii, who recently gave me this award:


Thanks so much girls! I'm honored, and so glad to know that my ramblings every day might make you smile, and maybe my cards inspire you in some way. :)

I stink at playing along with these things, so I decided that instead of tagging 8 or 10 other fabulous blogs, I'd just point you to a blog or two I read regularly that you might not be aware of.

Today, I thought I'd share the newest addition to my reader is Bake at 350. I have been on the search for a perfect cut-out cookie recipe for the past few years, and perfect decorating tips and ideas to go with it. I'd love to find a recipe for both a cookie and a frosting/glaze that tastes as good as the soft and yummy cut-outs you get in the bakery. I lovvve the way she decorates the cookies on this blog, and I'm going to try my hand at this flood icing when it gets a little closer to Christmas.

Another favorite is Bloggin' With Bobbi. She has some awesome photography skills and great tutorials for Photoshop Elements. I'm always learning something new over there!

I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with a new card to share, so I'll see you then!
