January Blogging Friends Blog Hop.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New year! I know we did:) Things have been crazy busy around {like always} but I am enjoying the couple weeks the kids have off of school to wind down and get ready for the next 6 months {which will be crazy busy}. We have had lots of family birthdays this month including two of my sons', turning 8 and 10...double digits!!!! 
The kids have had the flu for the past week or so. It went straight down the line and all three got it...thankfully Ryan and I didn't get it and I'm not sure how we didn't! So the kids have done absolutely nothing for the past week and I am about to lose my mind BUT I guess the good thing about them getting it over break is they didn't miss school. I just wish it wasn't Christmas because my oldest was down all day on Christmas day at both Grandma's house and looked miserable. He said, "It was the worst Christmas ever" that was pretty sad to hear. 

With all the craziness going on I have not ordered anything from the new Occasions catalog. I am hoping to later next week if I can narrow down my selection:) This month's theme is "Baby, It's Cold Outside". At first I wasn't sure if I had anything but I went searching my stamp sets and found the Christmas Cookie Cutter set with the little eskimo girl {super cute} and I have never used that particular stamp before so I was excited to come up with something. 

Let's see what Leanne has this month for us....

Jessica Mink {that's me}


  1. Definitely represents being cold outside. She is darling. What a cute card!!

  2. Adorable card, Jessica! I hope your sons get to feeling better real quick!

  3. Cute card Jessica, hope everyone is feeling better soon!

  4. I'm having so much fun hopping around and seeing everyone's different idea of winter and cold, so this was a great theme for the hop! Love the cute little Eskimo girl. Happy (and healthy) New Year! XO, Crystal

  5. Happy New Year, Jessica! Here is hoping that is the end of the flu for your house. I really love this card you made, the layout, colours and different textures are awesome. I completely forgot about this little Eskimo girl. Perfect for the theme this month.
