PPC-CC #38

Hello Bloggers!
Sorry for the lack of blogging usual, things are hectic here at the Sajkowicz house and with the coming of 'Baby Sajk', I really DON'T have ANY energy or motivation to do anything. I'm approaching 38 weeks pregnant and I couldn't be more exhausted and uncomfortable, but yet extremely excited and ready to meet my baby boy! :) So my truest apologies for not being so active in the blogging world...I'm hoping things will get better once the baby comes and I have some time off from work, but I suppose we shall see. I've been told that I won't have any more time for myself, but I WANT to make time for myself to get crafty, even if it is only an hour a day...who knows though! Any advice how to balance my time is always welcome! :)

Anyway, here is this weeks color combo from PPC...

And my Card Creation:

Card Size: 5-1/2 x 4-1/4
All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.
Stamps: Tags til Christmas
Paper: Baja Breeze, Concord Crush, Bravo Burgandy, Very Vanilla
Ink: Concord Crush
Tools: Ornament Punch, Big Shot, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder, Very Vanilla Embossing Powder, Heat Embossing Gun, 3D-Dimensionals
Accessories: 1/8" Bravo Burgandy Grosgrain Ribbon (SU! Retired)

Please take some time to hop on over to the other PPC Creators' blogs then get crafty and create something with these beautiful colors! Make sure you link your project on the PPC Challenge site. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I've also been meaning to post my final Week 12 of my 12 Weeks of Halloween...and yes, I know that it's a bit late, but I WILL post something very, very cute for my final won't want to miss it either! Look for that post this week!

Happy stamping my loves!
