An Elfy Christmas!

Well, I don't know how many of you are still out there and checking in with me in these few days leading up to Christmas, but if you are, I appreciate it!! We've been busy, busy here at the Reid house.

Saturday, I had to work....booo....but then Sunday I had to day off. Al and I got up early and went out to pick up food and stuff for the week. We also got ingredients to do a little baking....this is big stuff for us! We don't bake, generally speaking.

We started out by making this easy recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake.....could there BE a better dessert...I don't think so!! I girl at work brought in some treats and that was one of them, so I got the recipe and we made it. While that was in the oven we started making Melt-in-your-Mouth Shortbread!! Mmmmm, right? Well, it was going really well until our hundred year old electric mixer died! Ugh! So we had to finish whipping it by hand. I don't think they turned out as light and fluffy as they could have, but they're not bad. Guess I'll have to ask Santa for a new mixer for Christmas.

Then last night we took Emileigh and her boyfriend Brandon to the movies. We saw the new Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. It was really good! Totally it had Craig kinda movie!!

Anyhoo, today's card is one I made for the Magnolia DT and it will be making it's way to Sweden later this week. I used this cute little elf from the Jingle Jangle collection and a bunch of coordinating papers from the Wassail line by Basic Grey. Everything on the card was provided by Magnolia except for the white and red cardstock. I coloured him in using my Copic markers and added some sparkle using my Sakura Stardust gel pen.

I hope you are all enjoying the busy-ness leading up to the holidays. I sure am. I'm working the late shift this afternoon and evening but hopefully I can relax a little this morning. Have a stampin' good day!!!
