Tired, so very tired!

Supplies: papers from MME;
stamps & flock from Stampendous;
buttons from stash;
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

ew....gross little present!

Supplies: papers & chipboard from Basic Grey "Nordic Holiday;"
Memento London Fog ink;
sentiment from The Cat's Pajamas

Supplies: paper from Bo Bunny "Blitzen;"
Merry Christmas stamp from INkadinkado;
Memento London Fog ink;
miscellaneous bling

Supplies: everything but the googly eyes from Basic Grey "Nordic Holiday"

The title pretty much covers it - I'm exhausted! Friday I was awake for 21 hours, and with Midnight Madness, the Saturday morning market, and the town Christmas parade Saturday night...it was a busy weekend. Plus, the maid apparently quit (hah! I wish), and so when I came home Saturday afternoon, it was to see every.single.dish we own dirty. And we have a dishwasher. Not that anybody thought to run it. It took two sinkfuls of dishes before I could even get all of the dirty dishes onto the counter. 

That's not even counting the tornado zone my desk is in, with the flurry of last-minute creating all day Friday - yep, it's a mess around here. Too bad housework isn't near as much fun as making things...

xoxo,
Jessi

Bwahahahahaha!! The kitty card is absolutely brilliant! Love the fluffy gift!
As for the rest I so admire your use of patterned paper. It still tends to overwhelm me - I can't seem to put it together very well. I did break some out today though...
You really did have a busy weekend! Hope your sales were good and that all the events were fun. And if I see the cleaning fairy I'll shoo her in your direction!

I'm tired just hearing about your jampacked weekend!! :)

That kitten card is so spot-on! I love how proud he is of his "gift." Love those happy crazy snowmen, too, and that stitched sentiment!

These are so fun, Jessi! I hope that all that exhaustion paid off and you had great sales. Sorry so short--typing/clicking still aren't comfy. (and left-handed mouse? Slowest ever.)

Snort! Your kitty card is hilarious! With my cat, it would be his stench that he is always "gifting"! Love your snowman...I am so pulling out Nordic Holiday when I get home!

Oh! I love your kitty's card especially the little present - such a great idea, Jessi!

Don't worry to0 much about the dishes, your darling dog could perhaps help you to "clean-up"! LOL!

Nice to hear that you had a good time at the weekend madness!

I'd be totally exhausted too! What a great display of cards. The one with the ornaments has to be my favorite. Well done my friend. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Such wonderful fun cards Jessi! My fave is that 'fluffy gift'. I know it's hard to believe but I have this stamp and although I have stamped and coloured it, I can't remember ever making a card with it.... Thanks for the gentle reminder.
