Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I can't beleive how fast it's over! We had a great Christmas, busy but full of family fun and great food! With Christmas and boxing day being over the weekend many people are still off until Wednesday! It makes the holiday last longer! Chad and I have been enjoying some couple time as my parents took the kids for a sleepover on Sunday night and than my inlaws took all the grandkids for big sleepover last night (Monday)! It's been nice having time alone with Chad and being able to sleep in! It's good to be able to recoup after Carter was sick, than me, than Chad over Christmas and now Ariel. I found myself so busy right before Christmas with the preparations and than busy with Christmas!
Today I have a card set to share that I made as part of my gift for Chad's sister Lisa. I made her six cards of the same design but some differences:
Not the best photos some are on a angle making it look like it's not straight! I stamped a bunch of backgrounds than die cut them and cardstock and made some flowers. I made each card a bit different with the layout of the flowers and the buttons. I really enjoyed making this card set, and she really liked it! I enjoy making card sets and giving them as gifts. One of my friends encourages me to even just go through my stacks of cards and gift those, but I think giving a set is better. I think as I have ideas for sets I am going to work on making them to have on hand for gifts throught the year, or even be ready for Christmas! Did you give away any cards or card sets this Christmas? What was the reaction, and if not why not?
Here are some photos from Christmas that I thought I would share:
All of us on Christmas Day just before opening presents..
Christmas tradition before presents the bible passage of Christ's birth is read while the kids act out the nativity! Hopefully next year Carter will be old enough to take part! Ariel was an angel. My favorite moment was when the shepherds (the two girls holding staffs) walked to see Mary and Joeseph, they walked with a hunched back and limps. No idea why but boy oh boy did we laugh!
And this photo is for you Barb! It was a Vikings Christmas for Chad and Carter! Chad loves this hat that says " Future Viking!" And Carter loves his Viking's footballs and really likes wearing the hat!
Well I hope your having a great week between Christmas and New Years! Tonight I am taking Ariel to the Nutcracker! She is quite excited, it's too bad she isn't feeling her best but she doesn't want to miss it!
