Merry Christmas From Our House To Yours!


Hello there! 
Wow...I've been away soooo long! I've been working on Christmas gifts fpr all my friends and family and I'm still not done....

I made this last card here a couple weeks ago...totally forgot to take a pic! Was getting ready to send it out  too...can't believe I forgot about it! That's tells you where my brain is!

This will be my last card of the year. And just a heads up...I may or may not be taking a break from card making next year. My boys are getting older and I want to spend more of my time and energy scrapping next year. 

I will still be here though...just probably not sharing cards. I will still have my Etsy shop for sentiments and stuff...and since I'm going to be spending more of my time digital scrapping I will probably be focusing my time toward more of the digital stuff too besides my beading! :)

~~~~~~~~~~♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥~~~~~~~~~~ 

So...the last card of the year!


Yes I've used this Magnolia fairy again...I just love her!


And guess what?! I didn't realize it until I took the picture and this is the first time too...I completely forgot to stitch the main image!! Ahh well...it still looks pretty! And I've used another background stamp and masked the image...love it!


More views...The adorable little flower I got from the Dollar tree, so cute! :)


And the inside...love that textured crushed velvet DP!
