Holiday Side Step Card....

Good morning everyone!  Happy Monday!  This morning I want to share a side step card I have made.  My very first, actually.  I loved the look and decided to make one of my very own.  I cut the card using burgundy card stock and then added some pretty paper.  I just started adding items I love and first thing you know it was finished.  The birdhouse and snowflake are Spellbinders dies, the leaves were from a punch I have and the little image was sent to me by a special friend.  I colored with distress ink re-inkers and then cut out and added to the card.  The tree is a Heartfelt Creations stamp that I stamped and cut out; then I added glitter to the branches before adding to the card.  You could add anything you like to yours.  Just load it up and give it for the holidays!  It's almost a gift in itself!  
I almost forgot, the little bird is just from a package I purchased at Hobby Lobby and I thought he would look cute sitting by the bird house. 

I'm still doing some deep cleaning of my house.  It's not that I'm doing that just takes me a long time.  Today it's the living room!  New blinds and clean curtains and before I put them all back, some clean windows!  Just in time for the Holidays too!  I always like everything clean before we put the tree up.  Call me old fashioned, but I just love everything to look nice as our kids will be running in and out.  I always seem to get so busy and don't like to do a lot of cleaning when I could be playing!

Have a great day and no matter where you are or what you are doing.....take a moment and just "Breathe".

Especially, Facebook the social networking website that was
a hub for youngsters when it was launched is now a market place
where people not only try to flaunt their services and products rather try to sell
their services too. For those who do not have much experience, there are many sites that offer a free book on
how to better sell their products through Facebook fans, so do not wait,
build your site and buy some fans now. One of the most riveting prospects of the position
is, for individuals, groups, companies and businesses to create
their own pages to elevate and support their products, brands
and services.

In the world of social networking, numbers say a lot
about one's business. A lot of organizations do not recognize Facebook, so it could be a enormous benefit to you if you construct a sizable fan-page and have thousands of followers. Buy facebook fans or buy twitter followers is a way to increase the frequency of customer visits to your site and in other way, to bring more potential customers to your business.

era are not including in this special type of diet.

If your tween is into paint-ball you can take everyone to play paint-ball.
For adults, a virtual makeover of hair and makeup may be the equivalent of a little one hood game,
with an improved style sensibility that tends to make the knowledge
each entertaining and inspirational. The game would begin with them watching the collapse of society and the outbreak
of magic around the world.
