All Nighter...

I was never a big fan of the all nighter in college. It never did anything for me. Except make me just bleary eyed and more stupid the next day. But since becoming a Mom I seem to not have a choice in the matter. I've always been a GREAT sleeper. Until I had children I was one of those people who could sleep on the train going to and from work, I could sleep on planes, in cars, on the couch, on the floor, scrunched up in a chair, on a beach towel, on a chaise lounge...you name it and I could sleep in or on it. Again...until I had children. Now...I'm lucky to get 3 good hours a night on average. Lots of nights I get more than that but with each passing day it seems that I need less and less sleep to run on. In fact, the less sleep I get the better I function.

Weird, huh?

Anyway - last night was one of those nights. I got up at 2 am, watched an episode of my new favorite show 'What Not To Wear' and decided that since I hadn't even STARTED my holiday cards I figured...now was a good time.

So I am very proud to say that I started AND finished my cards in one night. I just sent my DH to the PO to drop them in the box!!

Here's a sneak peek!!

Oh and I have to thank my darling friend Sarah for the Night of Navy scraps (from her SIL's cards - last year!) and for helping me pull the design idea together last Monday night at her stamp club. I always feel good when I put scraps to good use. It's shameful to waste such wonderful cardstock!! Thanks Sar!!! XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

I also can't believe you made them all in one night! You're amazing.

Big hugs babe! Miss you!

Three hours a night? Are you serious? You are a saint - that little sleep would kill me!

The cards are beautiful, you are very talented.

Happy Holidays to you all!
