I spy a {pie}

It's on my waistline!  Just kidding...though after Thanksgiving, I wouldn't be a bit surprised.  Actually, I did rather well in reigning in my urge to make a second pumpkin pie on Friday {the first one was gone Thursday evening...and my hubby didn't even have a piece --not that I minded because it just meant more for us oinkers, but I think something's seriously wrong with his taste buds because he doesn't care for pumpkin!  Have you ever heard of such a thing?!?}.

So did you all survive Black Friday and Cyber Monday?   Speaking of Cyber Monday, is this something new?  I've never heard of it before.  Can't say I mind all the 'cyber sales' though.  I'm not at all into crowds, but the shopping in your jammies idea appeals to me. ;) 

Well, tomorrow is December 1st and I've not made a single Christmas card yet.  Please tell me I'm not alone!  I think next year I'm going to attempt one a week {the plan I'd gotten as far as thinking about this year} --anyone care to join me?  Actually, it's more like Would anyone care to join me in order to keep me accountable? lol    

And I'm just guessin' that you didn't come to hear me freakin' myself out about how the days are moving faaaarrrrrr to fast, so I think I'll move on and share a card with you.  Sound good?  Thought so.

Since this one has a rather fall-ish feel, I thought now would be better than next week.  It uses the Pie in the Window from Lockhart Stamp Company and some of the Indian Summer papers.  Lockhart does have several other of these cute "in the Window" stamps, and one happens to be a Christmas one!  Hmmmmm.... ;P

It looks kinda washed out in the picture (someday I'll learn how to take a decent picture...I hope), so I'll tell you that it's stamped on some shimmery cardstock and there's some Spica glitter detail added to the flowers for a little extra sparkle, though none of that's really visible either.  ;( 

Well, the clock's a'tickin' so I need to get going.  Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon.  Until then, many blessings to you!

Beautiful card, Christi. Nope, I haven't made a single card either, but I do need to get on the stick and order some photo cards (adds to her long to do list...LOL)

I had a small piece of pumpkin pie on Thursday and that's it. I'm not much of a dessert type of person (ducking and running for cover), although I seriously cannot resist hot buttered and salted popcorn! LOL

Try not to stress too much about the what you can and do the best you can to enjoy and savor the season. The hubbub is overrated

Okay... I'm not a real big pumpkin pie lover, either. But put a chocolate pie in front of me and it will be inhaled! lol

Your card is BEA-U-TI-FUL!!!

You card is just darling. Love that image. Ummm I really don't like pumpkin pie either LOL...I am a pecan pie gal, but really am not into desserts that much.
I have to admit as you have seen from my posts I have made probably 50-60 Christmas cards...LOL Hubby decided he wanted 40.I tried to explain to him I am not good at mass producing cards...Thank goodness for that Jingle PP from CTMH...!
