I hope you all had a happy Christmas and that Santa was good to you. We're always extremely blessed when it comes to receiving gifts, I feel almost shameful about our good fortune. However on the crafty front, I only received a Michael's gift card and a new paper cutter, so I may have to do some shopping for myself in January...lol!
Anyway, if you didn't get as many craft supplies as you wanted either, I wanted to let you know that my blogging friend Cheryl has some candy she's giving away. The sign up is here, or by clicking the photo on the side bar :) Good Luck!
And, our Torn Paper challenge is continuing through to the new year at the DRS Designs blog. Join us, and it's another way to win some crafty stuff.
Before I get to my card, here are a few photos from Christmas eve.
My Dad & Charlotte.
With my cousin Alan.
And my table for Christmas day dinner.
I was bummed when I realized the die I bought, only cut the name card to be flat. Some how I was thinking it would fold in half. Then I remembered the cute little ornament place card holders I got as a gift from my cousin Cathy a couple of years ago. Perfection. Even ended up matching better than I hoped with my red, green & gold centerpiece. Sadly I ran out of time to make favors, and everyone ended up only getting a chocolate Santa :(.
And finally, DRS Designs is the sponsor over at the 365 Cards blog this week and I made a card in support using the sketch for today.
Aren't those monkeys cute? I thought they would look great with the new friendship sentiment stamp that is going to be released on January 5th. Yes, new stamps = Yipee :)
The proper names for the stamps used on this card are as follows:
Life is Friendship (Released on Jan.5th)
Thanks for taking time to drop by....Have a safe and Happy New Year!
