Random Amusing Challenge 95

Good Monday morning and hope you are not panicking about the holidays! I'm going to finish my cards tomorrow and I'm almost finished getting the two gifts I'm buying this year. Yes, that's right - just two. Well, my hubby will be getting a few for his family but he will be buying those. We are on a budget this year, as are most people, and everyone has everything they need, right? One thing I started doing last year was donating to charity in lieu of giving gifts and that seemed to work really well. If you are panicking, step back, take a few deep breaths... it will all work out just fine, and if it doesn't, probably no one will notice.

Enough babbling, welcome to this week's challenge. I love fonts so this week's challenge is to make a project that is focused on sentiments, text, script, lettering, etc. If you upload on an online gallery, please use the keyword GRAC95. If you play along, please leave a comment here and link back here from your post. Thanks to Sonja and Kerry for playing along last week.

ETA - apparently I was up too early this morning and my grammar was atrocious as a result... I hope I've corrected everything... my apologies!

Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate it!

  1. I love the no gifts idea. We stopped a few years ago and I love not contributing to blatant consumerism any longer AND being able to give to charity. Sure takes the pressure off too...win, win, win! PS. I always love your cards!

  2. Love stopping by your blog. Always do, don't always leave a comment. Great challenge this week!
