Merry Christmas!

from our home to yours.  I hope you are having a blessed day with friends, and family.
I did send cards this year, however, they were this digital picture card that Bryan designed.

I designed our card and only had time to make a few of this hand-stamped Christmas Card.  Where did the time go?  Before I knew it, the week before Christmas was here.

I wanted to make one for everyone to go with the photo card, but I ran out of time.  So this year I had to not stress about it and just send the digital photo card.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope to see you checking in again soon.

2 Days Until Christmas.... I am getting ready to host our family and friends for Christmas Eve dinner.  Grocery shopping is done, house is clean and time to relax and enjoy the next couple of days.  I love the Peanuts characters....Today I want to share a display I have in the family room.  The Charlie Brown Christmas Tree makes me happy!!

And I have a small decorated tree in the hallway upstairs which has all Peanuts themed miniature ornaments. It also has a garland that is made from Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper circles sewn together to form a long garland. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope this made you smile like it does me when I see them.  Merry Christmas!

3 Days Until Christmas.....

.....and I must finish wrapping all of the gifts. Today I want to show you the stamped tags I made to match all the wrapping paper.  I love this set, Snow Place, you can find it in the Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalog.

Another favorite set from the 2015 Holiday Catalog is the Peaceful Pines set which I used to create these tags.

I will try to update the post with the exact supplies I used to create these tags.  I hope you will be making some tags to match your wrapping paper this year. Thanks  for stopping by!.
