Let them eat cake!

Sooooo...less than 3 weeks until Christmas! Are ya ready yet? Me? Not so much!! hehehe! Although  my sweet hubby and I did do some "decking of the halls" this past weekend!'s the the past, we've put up FOUR Christmas in the kitchen (with food-related ornaments), one in the sunroom (with beach-themed ornaments), one in the dining room (with Victorian ornaments), and one in the living/family room (with snowmen and Santa ornaments). Nuts, huh?! Well...this year, to save time and energy, we decided to put up just one tree...with all of the ornaments! We're calling it "ecclectic"...LOL!! Now I just have to start Christmas shopping! Yikes!!

So...enough chit chat about Christmas...I have a card to show you!! It's my Sugar Nellie DT card...and it is not a Christmas card! hehehe! What can I say? I just felt the need to make something pink and girly...
