My Favorite Things and Happy Mail!


Happy day after Christmas!! We had a really wonderful day yesterday. We opened our stockings around 7:00 in the morning, then opened our presents before my husband's folks got here at 9:00 for breakfast. Then over to their house for more presents, back home for a quick bite to eat (and a nap for my husband!) and off to my parents' house for the infamous "grab box" and supper. We stayed and talked for awhile, then came home where the girls and I just sat and ate dessert and chatted, and the boys (my husband and son) went back to his folks for yet another meal. I really enjoyed being able to spend the evening relaxing at home. It made me feel like the image on the card... and, believe me, I have the candy stash now to make it happen!! LOL. The card uses some of my new designer paper from Stampin' Up that will come out in the new catalog in just a couple of weeks, and one of the My Favorite Things images that I got through the Wish RAK forum at SCS. I colored with my Prismacolors and Odorless Mineral Spirits. I really like the look that gives, but I think I would like a bigger box of Prismacolors to choose from!

Guess what came today in the mail!! Yup!! My new stamps from All That Scraps!!!! Oh, how very fun for me!! :) Penguins and bugs and Lucky and Lucy and a few new animals added to the menagarie that I'll hope to "Sneak Peak" for you soon. Be sure to check back often!!

So now, with Christmas behind me, I get to start thinking about next year... my hopes, dreams, and projects to accomplish. How fun! See you soon!!

Oh you lucky girl! Mine didn't come yet. Hopefully I will get them tomorrow! I can't wait to play! Instead of stamping I went shopping with my daughter to some of the after Christmas sales. It was fun, but not as fun a stamping. Heehee. We are sick.

Darling card! I think it represents how many of us felt by Christmas evening = ). Can't wait to see what you create with your new goodies!
