A Little More Christmas…

I have some children who are counting the days until Christmas here. They’re now off for the two week holiday and bursting with energy and sugar of course.  Yesterday I held a Christmas dinner at home for my side of the family and we’ve all eaten quite well and then some. I love Christmas time and we had a very lovely day with family. Sorry for the slim posts in the past week but one can only do so much. I’m thrilled that my shopping is now done, some of it wrapped and I’m finally in a place where I can enjoy things a little more.Of course, I haven’t sent out a single Christmas card yet so that may be at the top of the agenda tomorrow! I wonder how many I can get written before the mail comes around 10am?

I have a couple quick Christmas cards left to share with you today. I just adore the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly line and have been having some fun with the chipboard and the 6×6 pad. The first design is a quick one with a hand-stitched garland.

Christmas Bells


The second is another Card Patterns Sketch…#44.   I’ve added a fun ruffle made with a strip of Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas under the ribbon.

Home for the Holidays


Well…I still have to do some baking and I hear the boys back from the store with my eggs so I’ll say goodbye.

 Hope you’re enjoying a wonderful weekend!
