Christmas Festivities 2009

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is staying warm and cozy inside.  I know I am.  It is in th 30's here in Virginia.  Cooooold.  No snow yet.  Maybe this weekend.  I wanted to share a few pictures of my kids gingerbread house and my 2009 Christmas card to family and friend. 

My kids decorated the gingerbread all by themselves.  Does it look YUMMY!!!!  I bought a kit for them to put together.  My wonderful husband helped with the constructing of the house and they decorated.  I think they did a fabulous job. 

Next, is my christmas card I made this year.  It was loads of fun.  I used 8-1/2 x 11 white card stock.  Cut it in half for a standard A2 card.  Cut some red cardstock for the background and the backing to the tree and punched out the modern label from SU.  Then I embossed the white cardstock with my cuttlebug embossing folder (snowflakes).  I stamp the tree with garden green ink from SU.  Then used Snow-tex for the snow and put some dazzling diamonds over the snow before it dried.  I also rounded the two corners with my corner rounder.  I just love this card.  It's so pretty.  Thanks for visiting.  Enjoy the pics.  Friday

Hi Friday!
Just love the gingerbread house your children made. I can tell they did it themselves, I love to see my nieces and nephews work on a project, they are always so proud of their efforts. It’s priceless.
God has blessed you with children, enjoy every day with them. I hope they get all they want for Christmas; after all it’s all about the little ones. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
