Is it really September already??

I can't believe how quickly this year is flying by!  The girls have been in school for a week now, in 10th and 11th grades, and next Friday, Laurena turns 17!!!!  Life itself sure is flying by as well...I never envisioned myself as a mother to a 17-year-old, and a 15-year-old!!  It's overwhelming if I think about it for too long...so let's move on, shall we?
 
I'd like to share my most recent Christmas card with you today:
 
 
I have most of the ladies I work with giving me their empty tissue boxes, and this cute ornament was made from one of them.  I was inspired by the colors of the box, as well as the design of the "un-usable parts" for my layout.  An adorable little polar bear from a misc. Christmas stamp set, and a Signature Christmas sentiment from Papertrey Ink are my stamped elements, and the ornament shape is from 2011 Heirloom Ornaments from Spellbinders. 
 
 I want to add this card to these challenges:
 
Christmas at Sweet Stampin':  Penguins and/or Polar Bears
The 12 Months of Christmas Link-up #9:  Anything goes with an optional Christmas tree theme
The Glory of Christmas Challenge #66:  Anything goes with an optional humorous theme
CHNC #244:  Use some silver (silver scalloped circle behind image, silver ornament topper, and silver cord for ornament hanger)
Winter Wonderland:  Add a Sentiment
Papertake Weekly:  Anything goes
 
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Labor Day weekend to all my fellow Americans!
