Fred She Said blog hop - Merry Christmas!

TGIF!  Today the Fred She Said ladies are showing off some of Tracey's latest images!  Perfect for the upcoming season! 

I used the pre-colored wreath, a layer of red cardstock and pretty organza ribbon!  BAM!  A lovely Christmas card!   This is going to make an easy mass production holiday card!

I'm thinking...I can tie bows while I'm watching TV and have a basket of them done in one night.  Simplicity at its best!

If you're hopping with us today, be sure to leave comments along with way...there are big yummy prizes at stake!  lol  My special word for you is FSS, and your next stop is the lovely Michelle! She has something gorgeous to show you!

****on the homefront***
Well, we made our first pumpkin pies last night!  yummo!  My 12 y.o. son has really been into cooking/baking with me, which totally inspires me to be in the kitchen!   He's my baby and he's following in his older siblings footsteps!  They all knew how to cook the basics & a few of their favorite foods by 13!   Soon I won't be needed in the kitchen at all!  lol (I can dream, can't I?!)  Ok, I'm off to have another piece of pie!

Spicy Pumpkin Hugs to you all!
Blessings!
