I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, Brandon is over the top excited this year and has loved all the family and friend events these past few weeks. Now if we could just get some snow around here so we can build Frosty the Snowman plus my light up deer on the front lawn look so much nicer when the lawn is covered in snow :o)
Our theme this month is Anything Goes and the design team has some super fun projects for us this week!

Before we get started, have you had a chance to hop along ourFun and Inspiration December Blog Hop? It’s jam package full of CUTENESS!!!! We would love for you to join us!!! Hop along for your chance to WIN!!!
It’s YNS Fun Friday and our theme is Anything Goes! I don’t have a card for you this week so I thought I would share a little holiday humor with you before diving into all the awesome DT projects!
A few years ago my husband Chris thought it would be fun to surprise me with a little 12 Days of Christmas theme. I get a little present everyday starting 12 days before Christmas…12 of something, 11 of something, 10 of something…you get the point. I know he is so SWEET, right? Well, this year I decided to join in the FUN and I‘m giving him 12 gifts too! We like to laugh and have fun soooo keeping that in mind this is what he got for Day 12…
12 little Reindeer poops! LOL
Hopefully you got a little chuckle from my special Day 12 present…Brandon (my 4 year old) thought it was the BEST gift ever!!!
Now let’s get back to Fun Friday and see what the fabulous DT have for us this week!

ACK! It’s December 7th already!!!! Have you started your holiday shopping, baking, decorating, card making…need I go on? I have to admit that all these things truly excite me as I LOVE this time of year! Brandon (our little 4 year old) finally has accepted his new little elf on the shelf friend, who he as conveniently named Elf. Last year he was scared of Elf so he told us we had to send him back to Santa…so we put him the box and put him away in hopes that one day he would love his little Elf on the shelf. Well, that say came on Dec 1 2012 when Elf brought Brandon a new room!
We decided that he needed a fun place to play and a big boy bed, as Brandon would call it, more than a whole bunch of new toys so this is our special gift to him this holiday although I’m sure Santa will still have some presents under the tree come Dec 25th 😉
Brandon asked for the game Operation for Christmas and he told me that if Santa doesn’t bring it he’ll got to the store and buy it himself! LOL
Enough about my little Brandon let’s talk about YNS FUN Friday!!!!
Our December theme is ANYTHING GOES!!!
I’ve unleashed the houndsYNS DT and have allowed them to pick their own project theme for the month of December. This should be a FUN and CREATIVE month!
Looks like everyone is in the holiday card making spirit and I LOVE it!!! Check out what they‘ve prepared for us today…

Did you guess the Mini Snowman Die and Snow Globe Die??? That’s right, we’re releasing 4 more mini dies to match our current holiday mini stamps! These mini’s are snow much FUN!!!!
Here is the whole tag and another peek at something sparkly and FUN!!!
This snowman is so stinkin’ CUTE! and those reindeer tags are adorable! Love these new Cory designs!
I made a little something for today as well! I love this fun row of presents (Holly Jolly Christmas), I love to use this stamp not only for holiday cards and tags but for birthday cards and tags as well!
I originally was going have patterned paper as the background which inspired all the different colored presents but in the end I decided to use my all time favorite paper for holiday cards…red velvet. I’ve also used the YNS Whimsy Layered Star die on my card along with some yummy YNS Glittered Skittles!
We’ve got day 1 of November sneak peeks starting tomorrow Saturday November 3rd! Be sure to stop to get a peek at our newest illustrator!!! I’m so excited!!!
