Just for the Fun of it Christmas Card

I started my day off running and I haven't stopped since! I'm exhausted. First of all I had to wrap 6 gifts for a charity "thing." Now mind you, I did buy these gifts about 2 weeks ago and I knew I needed them this morning! SO I'm wrapping them up carefully and neatly with an every watchful eye on the clock. I got them done and bagged up. Packed them in the car, grabbed my purse and coffee and off I went. I had an appointment and after that it was time to wait in line at the post office. Tis the season for longs lines everywhere!!! But it was ok, I was able to catch up on my emails on my iPhone. I knew I'd be waiting in line so I put off going on the computer this morning. Then from the post office it was off to the bank and the grocery store. Fortunately they are both in the same building! Next it was home to put the perishable stuff away and head out again. But I needed to be back home to sign for a package hubby was expecting. Got home in time and started putting away the rest of the groceries. I finally got around to making the bed, emptying the dishwasher and getting the counter cleaned off. Finally I got the vacuum out and cleaned the Roomba so it could do the living room for me while I did the steps and foyer! I LOVE that little machine! I touched up the bathroom (washed my hands) and began to make dinner and do a couple of loads of laundry! I'm just exhausted and I think tomorrow will be much like today but without the presents and groceries!! I SO love Christmas but I don't like all the extra things that come along with it. When am I going to have some time to do some baking???
Anyway, the wrapping is what inspired this card. I wrapped 6 gifts and each box had a different snowman paper on it!!! Imagine that! I LOVE snowmen but I didn't realize that all of my wrapping paper has them on it too! Can you say "obsessed??" LOL

This paper had a bunch of cute snowmen on it and I cut one out to see if it would fit on a card and it did!!! I thought it was such a sweet looking snowman that it really did need to be made into a Christmas card. Don't you think so??? And there was no stamping on this card either. The words were done on the computer a long time ago. I print out a full sheet of them and punch them out as I need them. Just TOO cute. SO don't toss away that last little bit of paper, it could be your next Christmas card!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today (I'm off to relax and regroup here!),
