Merry Christmas!

Hello Stampers,

100_6402 I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with friends, family and food!  For the first time in 17 years we had a WHITE Christmas which was a nice surprise.  Just enough to leave a light dusting on the roads but not enough to make travelling difficult.

My family went to a movie on the weekend - National Treasure - and had a good time.  The movie was entertaining and it was the only one we could all agree on - my daughter would have loved to see Sweeny Todd (she loves Tim Burton and Johnny Depp) and my son wanted to see I Am Legend (I'm thinking it's a takeoff on the old (really old) movie called Omega Man with Charlton Heston - anyone else remember that movie?  It freaked me out as a kid so I wasn't keen on seeing it again with 21st century graphics. LOL  So at the end of the movie my daughter asks "Was that really worth the $50 for the tickets?"  This reminded me of the Mastercard commercial so I said..."4 tickets to National Treasure...$50; Popcorn, drinks and candy for 4....$20; going to the movie as a family at Christmas...priceless"  And it was just that!

Here are some more wonderful Christmas cards that arrived just before the holiday...

100_64131 This first one is by Elaine Paget - this is absolutely stunning in person.

It looks like a winter scene in 3D.

100_64111 This card is by Debbie Tompkins and uses the soon to be retired hostess set called Sidekick Sayings.  I love the way Debbie highlighted the word "Christmas" throughout the saying.  The card is a Long Note size which is also a really nice change.

100_64081_2 Here's a card by my customer  Barb Paul and is so beautiful in  person - the gold embossing jumps off the vellum and is so elegant.

Lastly, here is a card by my sister, Mo Dickie.  I love the different type of fold Mo used on this card. 100_64101   Mo also sent me a "care" package with some wonderful 3D ideas using some of the new sets from the upcoming catalogue.  I just had to share this fabulous album she made using my absolute favourite new set - Embrace Life along with the Ginger Blossom Designer Series Paper.  Gorgeous!


Happy Stamping!
