One Last Shot at Christmas Cheer!

Hola Chicas!

How was your Christmas holiday?  Ours was great!!  Delicious food (at my sisters house), loads of laughs, and fun times with family.  Not only that, but my daughter and her husband revealed the sex of my future grandchild - IT'S A BOY!!  Yahoo!!  We're so excited to be grandparents in May, and I'm chomping at the bit to start shopping, although shopping for a little boy won't be half as much fun as shopping for a little girl.  But I'll find a way to make it fun!!  LOL  I hope that you all enjoyed your Christmas as much as I did.

So, I have one last sample to share with you showcasing Merry Wishes from My Cute Stamps.  I know, I know . . . Christmas is over.  But how cute is this card?!!  LOL  I just couldn't help myself - I had to share!  But for two reasons really - one because these stamps are just too danged cute for words.  But also because all clear stamps are still 25% off - through December 31st!  So if you're thinking about using these stamps for next year's Christmas cards, now's the time to get them!!   I've listed the materials I used on this card below.


STAMPS:  Merry Wishes (My Cute Stamps), Designer Wood Grain (Hero Arts)
PAPER:  Oh Joy DP (Cosmo Cricket), Kraft CS (PTI), Scarlet Jewel CS (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Corner Rounder (EK Success), Pinking Shears, Buttons, Hemp, Janome Sew Mini, Tags Trio (Shapeabilities - Spellbinders), 3-D Dots (EK Success)

We have a new design team starting after the first of the year for ABC Toys & Crafts and you all are going to LOVE them!!  Each and every one of them - ubber talented, I tell ya!!  Julie, the owner of ABC Toys & Crafts, has very kindly extended me an offer to stay on for another six months, and I was thrilled to accept.  I adore the products that ABC Toys & Crafts carries, and the other DT gals are super fun and talented - what more could a girl ask for, right?!!  No brainer!

Well, that's it for me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by - I can't tell you how much it means to me that you come by, even if you don't leave a comment.  I get all warm and fuzzy just thinkin' about ya!  Please have a safe and wonderful New Years - see ya in 2010!!

A baby boy, wow! Last time I went baby shopping (summer) I fell in love with a lot of the stuff I saw for boys. Things have really changed and manufacturers are producing a lot of fun and cute stuff for boys. I don't think you will be disappointed! Have a wonderful New Year!
