Welcome, Christmas!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and despite my best intentions to take a lot of pictures to share…I didn’t. Instead I cooked turkey for my family at home, took a nap and went to a movie! It’s a family tradition to see a movie on Thanksgiving Day, so we went to see Disney’s Tangled. This is one movie you need to see, people~ it was darling and delightful, and I may have even shed a few tears. But if you know me, that’s no surprise as I cry at Campbell’s Soup commercials…
The day after turkey day found me alone at my house for a few hours (a mother’s fantasy!!) so I took down my fall decor and started on the Christmas trimmings! What was usually a stressful event (with the whole family) was actually a peaceful and enjoyable evening spent with the music cranked up unwrapping each treasured ornament. I didn’t actually put up the tree (that’s the hubby’s job), but the “seasonals” are out and I am actually looking forward to the holidays! Maybe that’s because I slowed down long enough to “Welcome Christmas into my heart”.

This sweet card is one we made at the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack a few weeks ago. This could be one of my new favorite color combinations: Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Real Read and Marina Mist. And guess what? The stamp set used is Northern Hearts, a hostess level 1 set that you could choose free with a $150 order…and don’t forget that shipping is FREE for two more days on a $150+ order during the Online Spectacular, where you can save up to 50% on some of our most popular items!
