No crafting for a while

Happy Tuesday to you all! I have 5 cards for you, but they're all ABS technique. You're probably sick of them by now, so I thought I'd post them all together instead of one at a time.

I have to do my 84 Christmas Gift Baskets this year again, which is due on the second week of December. So no crafting for me for a week and a bit.
You've probably seen the new Martha Stewart punches... that is what I used and of course along with the ABS technique.

In real life... the ABS/embossing/distress ink technique is very shiny.

Yesterday I was gonna do some crafting... but I heard some noises in my craft room and was too afraid to check what it was ( is sounded like little feet running along the heater vent. Yes! that was my guess too) So last night, after our costco run. I went to put some stuff in the freezer and my craft room floor and table was covered with dust. And no! I didn't dare find out who is crafting in my room.

This morning (totally forgotten about the other crafter) I went to look for shoes for Lexiss (stored under the stairs) and then realized about them little feet. I've never moved so fast in my life, that I grab the first shoes I can find (of course not her shoes!) As I was coming out from under the stairs storage.. something flew by my head. It's a damn bird!! the bird must of got in from the cold air intake for the furnace ( well.... that's all I can think of, but don't ask the hubby.. he's accusing me of leaving all the doors open and that's how it got in) Yup! me, who is always COLD will leave all the doors open.

Cal~Gals Challenge

Friday night was our Cal~Gals night at Shannon's house. It's always nice to see the Gals and this time we even got to see Miss Hailey! It was a good night for me because I was actually productive.
Here's my take on Shannon's challenge (Beate's WSC) I did the ABS technique, Cuttlebug embossing and Distress Ink again. But..... this time I had to show Tracy the technique (lol, I know, I'll use any excuse to do the ABS technique) I forgot to pack my embellishments and Dianne was kind enough to help me out.
I got home that night and thought.. I'll read the Twilight book that I borrowed from Shannon, to unwind. I put the book down at 3:45 am! It's not because I was ready to sleep... It's because my girls will be up in 2 hours! I finished the book in less than a day!! I guess I'll be asking Shannon for the next one ("lol"with the rate that I'm going, maybe all 3)

Long time no post

It's FRIDAY!!! Gotta love it when it's a short week. Mid November already and I'm not sure if I'm gonna do my Christmas shopping or not. We only do the kids and they are all teenagers now.... shopping for them is a bit difficult. I'm thinking of gift certificates or just plain CASH.

My girls went to a Birthday Party last weekend and here's the card I made for the birthday girl. I'm running out of colored images... think it's time to play with my copic markers again.
