Merry Christmas, Everyone!!

I want to wish every one of my readers a very Merry Christmas! I wish I had the time to send a card to each and every one of you... but because we're once again making homemade Christmas gifts (see this post for last year's), I'm afraid it would take me til next June to get all the cards out that I wanted! In any case, here is the card I made for our family and closest friends... I think I made around 85 or so:

The snow is our gorgeous Shimmery White cardstock. Can't see the sparkle in the photos, but it's there! As I mentioned before, this stamp is so perfect for our family... take a look:

Michael prefers the more "traditional" colors, so I also made some in Old Olive:

We are enjoying a truly white Christmas... something we rarely, if ever, experienced in Texas. In addition, we all went ice skating on the lake! That was a definite first for us! I hope that you spend the next few days joyfully celebrating our Savior's birth surrounded by those you love.

Stamp Sets: The More the Merrier (Level III Hostess), Many Merry Messages, Serene Snowflakes
