Merry Christmas


Merry Friday stampers, scrappers and crafters!

I made this card for my dear niece Katie, and her new hubby Andrew, they live in Austin, Texas. Talk about a cool place to visit! When they got married back in April, I had a chance to explore just a wee bit of Austin. Great food, colorful fun hip people, and music everywhere! Great for the 20's-30's crowd, although I am in the mid 50's crowd and had a blast! They just adore living in Austin!

Another rough health week, sorry for no posts since Tuesday, I am trying gals! I am behind on my google reader and trying daily to catch up! Please hang in there with me! I certainly appreciate you all so very much!

In any event, I have the Christmas spirit going on, and I even put a nice garland over my doggies door way into his custom hand made (by DH) dog house! I will get pic soon and share how cute he looks in there! He will of course have his big red bow on Christmas Day! He will be slurping the grand babies with tons of lovings! I think my 3 year old GD is now big enough he won't knock her over accidentally! He is quite the gentle giant with the kiddies, just huge!
This weekend hubby and I will seek out the perfect Noble Fur and bring the pine aroma into our home. That certainly does complete the feeling in the home with all the gifts underneath. I enjoy seeing that image, as the presents get opened so quickly on the big day! I have been making (of course) my little gift tags, it does make it so personal and special I think. So at little wrapping each day, and rest for me. Those babies are going to wear my hearth out with joy! (wink)!
The card stock base is Corduroy by Paper Co. Always artichoke by SU and the PP is Poinsettia Swirls by Sandylion. The sentiment stamp (Merry Christmas) is Flourishes. The wide satin ribbon is by the yard from M's.

Have a great evening and weekend! Thanks for your visits! Deb

I luv that card Deb! I saw that beautiful paper at Michael's the other day but am sorry to say I did not get it & now that I saw it on your card I wish I would have bought it that day...it's beautiful! Take it slow & it will all come together for you. But better to take care of yourself first so that your family can enjoy you over the holidays. Go slow girl! Wish I had the palm tree weather here instead of all this snow.

Love your card, Deb! It's just luscious and elegant.

I used to have a shepherd too---gentle as anything! She just loved kids. I have a golden now and she adores kids too, loves to sit ON them on the sofa and lick them til they pee their pants from too much giggling! :)

Hope you get feeling better...take it easy, it's more important to be healthy than to have all the trappings ready for Christmas! :)
