The big day is over and I hope that everyone survived the holiday without too much stress! I am here in my craft room once again after such a nice, relaxing day it was almost scary! Something I'm not used to at all...LOL. We have my niece and nephew for a week or so as of today, and that is our best Christmas gift we could ask for. We haven't seen them since they lived with us 1.5 years ago (and they only live 25 minutes away) due to a social services order and my kids were just pumped today! It's a long story, and one that I won't get into today - just know that we are so excited to have them for the week and my kids have just been jumping for joy all day and giddy with excitement and happiness! :o) I cried and told them I missed them so much and man oh man, have they grown!!! Crazy!
Today I decided to CASE these cards from Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Studio. Please be sure to check out her wonderful tutorials she posts...she's a great source for help and techniques! Thanks, Dawn - these cards are so easy and soooo pretty! I am going to do the same as Dawn and make them in Burgundy, Artichoke and Hunter next....then I will have my Christmas cards all done for January in Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge! Yay me!!!
