First I have a Christmas Day family picture to share - unfortunately DH Kent had to work (!) - so he is missing from the pic. I did bring him home a Christmas dinner and we opened our gifts Christmas night.
Back row - April and my son Josh, Greg (DH of Katie), sister Marcia, her DH Bob, Nate (DH of Christie)
Front row - Landon & niece Katie, Me and Mila, niece Christie & James
My first card to share was made for the Split Coast Inspiration Challenge - inspired by this white, gold and black East Six invitation from the Wedding Bells web site.
I've been needing Anniversary Cards for my stash - so that is what I made for my card.camellia flower, the sentiment and the lovely background. I die cut the sentiment with Labels 25 Nestabilities and popped it up on the card with foam tape. I added a little red heart gem for just a touch of color!
Poppy Patch Spellbinders die that I purchased some time ago and hadn't used yet!
After I die cut the poppy patch - I sponged the poppies with Ranger Distress Festive Berries and the ground with Iced Spruce before removing the die. I embossed a Nestability square on the front of the card and layered the poppy patch inside the frame with foam tape. Then I just stamped the Thank You in the corner.
So - what are your plans for New Year's Eve??? Kent and I are both working on Monday - so we are going out to eat early when we get home around 6 - then sitting on the sofa and watching the festivities on TV - locally Boston has a great events going on and then fire works (we used to go in to it but it can get really cold being out there!) and of course, NYC has the traditional falling ball at midnight!
