Sweet Holiday Wishes

I haven't done much posting, because I have been cleaning my house which I really have neglected for quite some time. I always had an excuse, work, design teams and I just needed to get it done. Now that I have been working from home, it was driving me crazy to have my office be the only clean area. I found cards that I started and just never finished and here is one of them. I had this pre-colored image from Paper Shelter and had some liquid pearls on it. So I put it together with some papers I embossed and distressed and a left over piece of Christmas paper that I don't even know who the maker is and now this is how I feel after doing my cleaning, lol.

Polish Merry Christmas

We didn't always celebrate our heritages and diversity is a new concept. My father is born here in the US and so were his parents, and grandparents. However, they settled in an area in Wisconsin where there were people of Polish decent that spoke a dialect of Polish. So when my Dad when to school he knew how to speak this Polish and not English.  He went to a one room school house and had to stay in from recess to get extra English lessons. To this day he can not say words with "th" and has even gone for speech therapy. 
I made a Merry Christmas card using a die cut from Memory Box.

Be Good this Christmas

I have been wanting to make at least two Christmas cards per month. With all that is happening in life and the added stresses for everyone, I have been making my cards that have some sarcastic humor.  I think that we need to laugh and that is the only thing that we seem to be able to do for fun lately. I got a new stamp set from Whimsy with these Christmas girls and added my own sentiment. Now I think that I will be on the naughty list forever. I actually want to make a red-headed version of this same card and send it to my ex-husband, lol.
