Xmas is almost here...

Oh what a whirlwind of a holiday season this has been. I'm sure everyone thought I had been kidnapped, never to be heard from again. But, alas I am here! Can I just tell you that going through all your xmas boxes when they are covered by baseboards and shoved in the corner of the garage, blocked in by various other boxes is a CHORE! Kinda put me in a Bah-Humbug mood this year....but luckily the bright lights, the glittery ornaments and the smell of xmas cookies has filled the air this week and I'm starting to get excited for Xmas in our new home.
So this week I'm showing off Gliding By Sophia, the January SOTM over at Paper Pretties...only a few days left for you to sign up otherwise you'll have to wait until February for this gorgeous gal. I just got some of the white snow Martha glitter and I'm in LOVE with it!!! It glistens rather than sparkles....perfect for snowflakes! Her ear muffs scream for white flocking and of course, copics for the coloring. Do you see the light stripe texture on the white card? I'm really starting to enjoy the subtleness of the texture plates rather than embossing folders. Granted, I have to own it all but I enjoy the lightness of a soft texture these days.

I'll be stuck in the kitchen for the next two days baking up a storm and then off to the bay area to visit my in-laws. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with lots of love, joy and STAMPS! What are your plans for the holiday??

OOOOOOOOH the CUTENESS!!!! Love it, it's gorgeous!

Well, you know what our plans are but I will be checking into make sure you're not buried under a pile of flour and you can check on me to make sure I'm not buried under a pile of snow!

Don't forget my advice abt the squirt bottle I gave you the other day (LOL!) and tell that niece of mine to behave or her stocking=coal! Or should I say, catnip instead of biscuits! XOXO

What a pretty card!
This afternoon, My family and my husband's family are having a combined Christmas party at a local township hall. We play games, and I will have supplies there so everyone (who wants to), can make a couple of scrapbook pages---and then after Christmas I will send them pictures that are taken during the party.
