Smeared Ink New Release Blog Hop

Hello lovelies, it's that time again!  Time for another Smeared Ink new release hop!!! Today we are announcing the release of 4 new sets from Smeared Ink.  These sets are for pre-order right now and will be ready to ship on November 30th!!!  There are some wicked awesome new sets to chose from!!  I am working with the Occasions Grumpies today which is already released, I love the Grumpies sets, they are my friends!!!  Anyway, this Christmas Grumpie, is SO cute, and the saying, well lets just say, it says it all!!!

So the story behind my card, is that this grumpie got up and decided that today was the day to decorate the Christmas tree.  So between making sure the ornaments weren't broken, and  untangling the lights, there had to be some egg nog drinking going on(of course), and quite honestly who can keep up with the amount of egg nog that is being consumed simply because it is so good!!!!  So it is rather late now and this is the last string that needed to be untangled before going on the tree.  My grumpie completely forgot he already had his had on so decided to put another on.  His eyes are blood shot, but he swears it's not because of the egg nog(although he isn't really sure) but it is because of the glare from the lights he has been looking at all day!  Anyway, tis' the season for lots egg nog so here is my card!  Enjoy!

Now head on over and see what everyone else has done!
