Red & White

Red & White seems to be a popular Christmas card color this year as we have received so many and I can't get them out of my head!!  We have red & white holly leaves, red & white poinsettias, and red and white subway art style.  I purchased a Stampin' Up snowflake die to go along with my Simon Says Stamp big die and my punches.  Add red & white washi tape and some red & white brads from my stash and voila!

We are up to our necks in snow albeit the artificial kind.  My favorite this year came from Micheal's to set our Dept. 56 Christmas houses on and it is lucious! All these sparkly tinsel strands and it is so fluffy.  It actually makes me desire a trip to Michael's... and then I envision the line and I come to my senses. 

Here is my exciting news.  Actually two bits of exciting news.  My granddaughter gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Gabriella.  This is great-grandbaby number two!  Her adorable son, Trystan was born two Christmas' ago.

My second, not as important exciting news is that Hobby Lobby is built and opens on the 26th!  It is no more than 10 minutes away.  I may camp out just to be there when the doors open.   It is just fun to have choices. 

Thanks for visiting and Merry Christmas!!
