Project Tuesday - Side Step Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! Well, we are getting pretty close to Christmas! I sure hope you all have your projects just about complete!!! I am nearly finished with all of mine!

Before I go to the Project Tuesday challenge today, I wanted to share a photo of 2 of my grandchildren. I kept Coy and Brooklyn this past weekend, while their parents were able to get some Christmas shopping done and a little down time before the holidays begin.....one of the Christmas traditions we started when Coy was younger is to make a gingerbread house. Over the years this has gotten easier to do, the first few years were really messy! But, after trial and error, Coy and I have gotten a system to creating our house. This year, we included Brooklyn, she had a great time...I think she ate more than she contributed to the creation of the house...but we all had a fun night...and that is the most important part of creating the tradition!!!!! When we finished up the gingerbread house, we popped some popcorn and watched Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.......and then we all went to bed!!!

Now for the project this week at Project Tuesday we are making a side step card!
I hadn't made this type of card before, so I was a little anxious...but it really was easy! I decided not to make another Christmas card...I think I am about Christmas out.....don't get me wrong...I just needed to use some other colors rather than green and red! I'm sure I will be back in the mood very soon, as I still have projects to complete for Christmas!

So I decided to pull out these really cute stamps from Waltzingmouse, I just love the quaintness of this set! I used PTI designer paper A Men's Life and PTI ink and ribbon. This was a really fun card to make, I hope you stop by Stamps and Smiles and check out the other design team members cards today! They are really super!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
