 Well, it's just been one of those weeks.  My goodness, The hand me down washing machine decided to spin it's last cycle in life, and hence sending us out in a scurry to find a replacement. In all our 24 years of marriage, I've not ever had a new one, so I was shocked at the expense and nervous about getting one, after all I was use to the old beater, we had to use pliers to adjust water temperatures, the lid was held on by one lasting hinge, and well, let's just say it was an antique, But all good things must come to an end Then today my computer mouse decided it should go too, but I thought maybe just perhaps it was disconnected because sometimes

that can happen in our little space, but when I finally made it down to the floor to check out the situation, what to my wandering eyes should appear ?  Water, puddles all over, so some how our porch we enclosed for office space has sprung a leak or something.. tis the season to be jolly.  My poor husband will have to look into that tonight, plus pick up our washing machine, I sure hope things go smoothly.  .. There is so much to fill you all in on.. but seeing that I've wrote so much already I will just get to the card.  I have entered this in the sketch challenge at: Sunday Stamps
I turned the sketch upside down and went for a Christmas tree approach using embossing folders for some contrast.  I also used some ribbon for train tracks and glitter for the Star topper which I used to represent the circle in the sketch challenge..  I orginally planned on the little train climbing up the side of the mountain, but it just didn't look right, but I did stick with the sentiment believe. 
I've also included a couple pictures of this cute little fella, who was enjoying a mid morning snack. 

Thank you so much for visiting today.
😊Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping😊
🎄Merry Christmas🎄
