Thanks Snow Much

Hi Everyone!! - I've had an assembly line going making thank you cards for Christmas gifts I received from some of my volunteers. I covered the top of the card using a piece of star glitter paper that I bought at Michael's on clearance for 49 cents. Then I used a blue piece of shimmer paper for the bottom of the card that I embossed using the snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I cut a strip of cream colored cardstock and used the Snowflake Martha Stewart punch to create the border.

I printed the sentiment on light blue cardstock. I used two sizes of Nestabilities along with my Cuttlebug to cut out the sentiment circles. I layered them and then pop dotted them on the left side of the card. I purchased these Nestabilities at Hobby Lobby off the clearance aisle. I have wanted some of these for a long time and finally broke down and got some for myself. I must say "I'm glad I did!!"

I hope you found some inspiration from this card - I made a lot of cards in a short amount of time by making all of them the same.

Well, I'm excited to say that my Mom is coming to see us this week to hopefully stay for a long time!! Jacob is so excited - he keeps asking what day she's coming and then he'll ask - now what day is today?? That boy loves his Mamaw bunches!! This Christmas will be our first Christmas without my Dad and everyone in our family is missing him terribly. Daddy's favorite time of the year was Christmas - Jacob always said Papaw was a "Christmas Nut!" Daddy always had to have his Christmas decorations up first and my parents house was the prettiest house in the neighborhood!! Jacob asked me the other day - "Mommy, do you think that Papaw will be going to Jesus' birthday party in Heaven?" I told him that I was sure that Papaw would be there and would be having a great big piece of cake!! Oh, the innocence of a child!!

I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season and I wish you a very Merry Christmas!! Thank you for visiting with us and allowing me to ramble on. We appreciate your visits and your comments. Until another day, God Bless You!! (P.S. Merry Christmas Eve, Eve, Eve) Donna
