We had a great Christmas, spent time with family and friends, the kids loved the stuff they received but there is one holiday story that I just have to share. We open our presents on Christmas Eve we always have well after dinner we started to open presents when there was a knock at the front door and to EVERYONE'S surprise Santa Claus was on our doorsteps. Hubby invited him inside, the kids didn't know what to do they were sooooo surprised they wouldn't move. Finally I got them to go by the door and get a picture with Santa.
Then Santa handed us a cookie jar filled with cookies, wait aren't WE supposed to leave Santa cookies. Oh well it was a terrific surprise, thanks SANTA!! By the way the hat my daughter is wearing is a christmas present she had just opened and she loved it and barely took it off for the next 24 hours.
I pulled out the Bountiful Blooms collection from TaDa Creative Studios to create this card. Papers used Ivy League, Mini Mes and Snippets & Clippets. Stamped a sentiment on the Journaling block added rhinestones to the flowers added stitching and used a Spellbinders Large Classic Inverted Scalloped Square on one of the papers.
This card is for the Create:Blog the challenge was to create a new year card. I used another TaDa Creative Studios collection this time the Abode a la Mode collection. I used the Hoop Dee Doo paper for the base of the card, then created a flag from one of the Tag-a-ma-jigs, the purple strip is also from the Tag-a-ma-jig paper and finally created a shaped piece for the sentiment from the Jumpin' Java paper. Add some stickers and you have an easy New Years card.
