Happy Birthday, Rachel!!!!

This weekend was so busy with my youngest DD turning 4 on Sunday and her Backyardigans birthday party with 6 of her little friends on Saturday. The December meeting of our SU technique club was Sunday afternoon and we had a yummy cookie swap as part of the festivities. To top it all off, my DMIL & DFIL were in for the birthday and we traditionally have the girls' pictures made with Santa while their grandparents visit so that made a trip to the mall and dinner out on Sunday. It was a marvelous weekend, but boy did I ever crash on Sunday night. Last night older DD spent the night with a friend that, also, homeschools (we will have to play catch up tomorrow with lessons) and younger DD went to pre-school. That meant I had to entire morning to myself. Wasn't sure exactly how to act- turned, and out of habit, looked for the kids a couple of times. I actually got some last minute Christmas shopping done AND got to go to a lss a browse at my leisure!! I guess I should have been home making some Christmas gifts that I have plans for BUT I can do those while the girls sleep! So instead, I thought I'd share a card I made a little while back using Flourishes stamps and Cosmo Cricket Wonderland 8 x 8 paper. This card is pretty straight forward. One interesting detail is the photo corners. Do they look familiar. They are actually the tops of the Christmas tree from this Flourish Christmas set embossed in gold. Not the best picture in the world. I have requested one of the fold-up photo cubes for Christmas. A new camera would be nice but I'm currently using the "big" Christmas gift to make this post- lol! It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
