True Gifts of the Holiday

When you take away all the commercialism of Christmas, and the ham, and the cookies, what you can really concentrate on are the true gifts that we all share at Christmas. That's the feeling I wanted to relate on this gift box for this week's challenge at Polka Doodles.  I partnered it with the sketch over at Sassy 'Lil Sketches and the "What makes you happy" challenge at Simon Says!  Sharing the feeling of Christams is what really makes me happy!

I plan to make a mini-album of all the members of my family for my parents, who are in their later years. I hope it holds memories they can enjoy often over the next years.

Paper used was Glitzmas, from SEI.  Red layer was cut from SEI glitter cardstock with the Nestabilities "Dalia" folder.

Blog Candy !

Tracy's Stamping Corner is having a blog candy giveaway to celebrate her 100th Follower! I can relate in that I don't have so many followers myself! I commend her on reaching the magic 100!  So if you want a chance at winning some really amazing products, check out her blog and definately become a follower! You won't be disappointed!

More Card Challenges!

I am now addicted to card challenges!  I have been without internet all day, and it about drove me nuts! Turned out it was only a 7 year old ethernet router that was installed in this house 6 years ago! It finally crashed during the night!
Well, all is well again, so here are my two most recent cards.

The first is for Waltzing Mouse this week.   The sketch is simple and sweet. 

The second is for I(heart)To Stamp. I love this sketch and the blog!
Enough for one day!  I'm just thrilled to be back online!
