A little late, but Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, Stampers!  I know Christmas is past, but it was a busy time with family, friends and such.  I hope each one of you had a Merry Christmas and are headed into a wonderful New Year!  I wanted to share my personal Christmas card with you.  I almost didn't get them done and distributed in time.  Actually (guilty look) some of them didn't get sent out at all.  Oops!  I will try to do better next year.

I will also try to post a little more often this year.  It has been a bit of an adjustment with a second child in the house.  Hopefully we have that all set now.

That's it for today.  Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

I belong to a local group of stampers and we had our anual Christmas meeting'  We all make a gift with our Stampin' Up! products for a gift and then at the party we play Stampin' Santa.  It's a lot of fun and there are some awesome gifts.

I had a hard time deciding what to make.  Then inspiration struck!  I lollie (rosette, medallion or what ever you want to call them) wreat made of ...   VELLUM!  I hadn't seen one done this way yet and it seemed awsome.  I did use vellum cardstock so it woudl be sturdy.  I also used lots of shimmer mist, some rhinestones and some silver Glimmer Paper snowflakes.  I thought it turned out great! 

I hope you enjoyed your visit here.  Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!  Now off you go to visit www.stampindragon.blogspot.com  for more inspiration.
