The Day After

DSCF1893

What day is it?  It feels like Saturday or Sunday, not Wednesday!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday…we did, but now I am suffering from those post-holiday blues…..I just sort of puttered around the house this morning, and finally decided STAMPING would lift my spirits!  Now that I’ve played, I can concentrate on cleaning up a bit!

I needed a special thank you card, so I flipped the RetroSketches sketch 43:

so that I could play with some new goodies:

Unfortunately, this is one time where my MS glitter didn’t look so hot, but once that stuff is glued down, it’s not coming off!

This is also for the Shopping Our Stash challenge 82, which is winter but not Christmas!  I used some pleated and gingham ribbons that have been in my stash a while!

Cassidy got right into the spirit of things yesterday; she actually sat through the entire church service Dana attended on Christmas eve:

and loved unwrapping her gifts on Christmas morning almost as much as playing with them:

Grampy came to the rescue on a particularly tricky package!

  2. Merry Christmas, LeAnne! Cassidy looked BEAUTIFUL for church. What a pretty dress.

    And your card today is so sweet! I like that snowman. He has a farm/country vibe that is neat.

    We had two more family gatherings today, here at my house. (divorced parents on both our sides means more gatherings) Now the house is quiet, and I'm glad to catch my breath! BTW, my stepmom loved the card you sent me. I showed her all my handmade cards received from friends...she thoroughly enjoyed 'em all, especially yours. :)

  6. How special to have snow on Chritmas Eve! I love the snowman. It's felt like Monday to us all day since the boys are back. We enjoyed our break and I'm feeling kind of lazy and not getting back into the swing. Maybe tomorrow! I'm glad to see that you got to your stamps and that you shared with us!

  11. Cassidy looked gorgeous for the Christmas Eve service and good for her to set through it so well. I love the expressions on her face while opening her presents. Such joy and I bet a joy to watch her too.
    Your thank you card is wonderful and so glad you were able to do some stamping. I'm sure it did lift your spirits. This adorable snowman probably helped too didn't he? I like the ribbon/snowflake treatment.

  12. I really like what you did with this sketch, and all the interesting elements. Lots of DSP, button, ribbon, glittery snowflake all make for a yummy card!

  16. LeAnne, Loved the card and photo's. After four years away it seemed fitting that it snowed on Christmas Eve. Your card is lovely and your photo's of Cassidy just darling. What a big girl sitting so nicely in church.

    A belated Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
