Merry Christmas to all...

We are ready for Christmas at our house. Our family members will gather here this afternoon and we will have some fun playing board games for a couple of hours. We had hoped to be able to go sledding, but the weather will just not cooperate! We had a bit of slushy snow yesterday, but not nearly enough to allow for sledding or even building a snowman. Once it gets dark, we will take a tour of our city to look at some of the beautiful light displays. Then, after a casual meal of hearty homemade soups (Chili, Cheesy Corn Chowder and Chicken Wild Rice), we will exchange gifts. That is the part that the grandchildren can hardly wait for!!

But before we do all that, I thought I'd share one more Christmas card.
For this card, I used an embossing folder that came free with the last issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft. I simply embossed the design and then added a little chalk to the leaves and vines and some tiny dots from my red and gold Viva D├ęcor pens. The "Merry Christmas" die-cut is by Dee's Distinctively.



Here's a little closer look at the embossing.


































I added a stamped Christmas sentiment on the inside to finish my card.












I hope that you have completed all your holiday preparations, wherever you are, and can now sit back and enjoy your own family's celebrations. I wish each of you a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
Cheryl
