Things are looking a little different around here

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Only 18 more shopping days til Christmas. I love the whole idea of dressing up your blog for the holidays but honestly my previous blog couture wasn't me. I can't really justify spending money on someone creating headers and backgrounds for my blog so I spent some time searching around for some free headers and found the one above that was the right fit for me. I'm so proud of myself for figuring out how to use to personalize it for myself. Now my blog feels like I do "happy"
And since we're celebrating happy so is my scrappy pal Heidi Sonboul! She's got a fab giveaway on her blog Queen of Paper...

Yummy! Hurry over and get your chance to win this fabulous prize!

I'm working on some cards this evening, I didn't get much done today. The rainy weather kept the kids inside and they were full of energy.
Here's the bonus sketch at 2S4Y by Ashley Cannon Newell

Here's my take on her sketch. I was excited when I saw the sketch because I knew it would be perfect for my new I-top brad tool!

I used Polar Expressions by Imaginisce, American Crafts Thickers, and some yummy ribbon by Celebrate it.
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh girl I love that card and your header! I totally get you on a redesign. If I wouldn't have been able to do the design work there is no way I could have done mine! It's certainly not cheap! Your header looks great!
