A few holiday cards

Holiday cards are always tough for me, I want something that expresses what our family is about, but I also needto keep in mind that I have to make quite a few, so keeping them a little simpler makes the task less daunting.

So when Christina gave me some of her new holiday stamps, I knew my problem had been solved! I just love the quality of her stamps, the deep etched red rubber gives such a beautiful impression and they are so easy to use that it makes it even easier! Of course I had to use the Scenic Route Roxbury line to make the rest of the card, that paper is so gorgeous and looks amazing with everything! I love how the tree one turned out, but I think I will be making the snowman, more of what our family is about! What do you think? I would love to hear opinions!
Also tomorrow is a new Method Playground challenge, and we have a wonderful guest host!
The FAB Layle Koncar, you know, THE Layle of Scenic Route amazingness will be giving a great challenge and providing a RAK worthy of some serious effort! So stop by the MP blog to see what is up! Check out her blog, she has a story that gave me the goosebumps and some tears.
Last night was a movie night, we all watched Pirates 3 together and had chicken curry, a wonderful night! I am so glad that my teens love to spend time with us on the weekends instead of being out! We are so blessed!
