December C.A.T.S and Chinese Pretzels

Happy Christmas Eve Eve Peeps!!! Can't believe the big day is just around the corner. A few last minutes things popped up over the past few days. You know how that goes. Got those squared away. Whew. I'll be glad when we can sit down and enjoy our family Christmas dinner.....THEN hit the stores on Monday for some after-Christmas sales. Woo-hooooooooooooooo!!! That's probably the best part....for me anyway. I LOVE DEALS.

Have you seen that Hyundai commercial with the little girl singing Feliz Navidad with her dad? Oh, that is my fave commercial. She's soooo cute singing with her heart and soul. If that commercial comes on while I'm busy doing something, I always stop and run to the TV to watch it.

And did you watch X Factor last night? YAY, my fave won. Go Melanie!!!!

I want to share this sweet card I received from Mimi who was my December partner for C.A.T.S. (Card and Tag Swap). What a cute image and so perfectly colored. Love the DP too and rhinestone bling.


And here's the matching tag. Cute yah? I love the layout and embellies LOTS. THANKS MIMI!!! Check out her blog for some inspiring creations.




Oh shoots....another senior moment. I forgot to post a picture of the sparkling Christmas brads and embellies. Trust me, they are CUTE. I'll save them for my 2012 Christmas cards. THANKS AGAIN MIMI!!!


And here's a pix of the Chinese Pretzels I made the other night for gifts. Thought I'd share a pix for Colleen. Check out her inspiring blog too. She has her house so festively decorated.





Thanks so much for stopping by. HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS with your family and friends.

The card and tag that you received for the CATS is very cute. Thanks for sharing a picture of the Chinese Pretzels. They they taste like a regular pretzel? They look so much cuter than a regular pretzel. I would love to try one day. When you have a chance please e-mail me the recipe. Thanks!
