Happy Christmas Eve!!


WOW!! I can't believe it's here already!! Does anyone else feel like this month has just flown by?! I hope you are all ready for the holiday hoopla but for those of you who plan to make a trip to the store today....may the force be with you!!! heehee!

We had a super bad winter storm last night and of course my husband had to work in it....he drives double trailers for a trucking company. Yes double trailers, that means 2 twenty-six foot trailers but he is a VERY good driver. I talked to him last night and he said there were trucks in the ditch and cars flipped over on the side of the road all along the highway. It was BAD. And I just talked to him this morning and he is on his way home again. The roads are much better but he said that the police said the 400 series highways had a total of 165 accidents last night. Not good.

Believe it or not, when he gets done work, he's probably going to go shopping. Really. He's one of those crazy people who ENJOYS the 'hustle and bustle' of Christmas Eve shopping. Me, I'd rather stay home in the warm and ......STAMP!!! Well, last night I wrapped presents, so I think I've earned a few hours of stamping time.....okay, I'll do laundry at the same time too. Sheesh. You drive a hard bargain. *giggle*



Today's card is a special one that I made for my parents for Christmas. I talked to Mom yesterday and they just got it in the mail. (Yes, I was a bit late sending them out....so what's your point!?) This was the first time using the Magnolia Skaters stamp, which I just love. I hope they do more images of Tilda and Edwin together. They're so cute. I want to play with them again!!

I used Purely Pomegranate for the square base and the dp is from a retired Simply Scrappin' kit called Happy Me. I love all the colours in it, too bad they are all retired! I love Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate and Groovy Guava. Good thing I have extra packs of paper. The sentiment is from an AmyR set and is punched out using my oval punch. I used glitter paper for my snowflake punches and I added a button on top of each one. I coloured the main image using my Copic markers, sponged around the edges with Soft Sky ink and pop dotted it!!

What do you do on Christmas Eve?? We usually hang out as a family, wrap each others presents, watch a movie and play some games. It's usually a really laid back day for us, which I thoroughly enjoy. Hope you have a wonderful day, whatever you do!!!

Happy Christmas Eve!!!! (Only one more sleep!!!)

What special card for Mom and Dad! I don't know how you stay sane knowing your DH is out there driving those big trucks. I worry about my DH just driving home from work in his Chevy truck in a snow storm. LOL!
