I have gotten some really beautiful cards this year from so many of my talented friends!! I just had to show them off on here. I would love to show you a closeup of them all, but I only chose a few. The first one you see to the left is from Tina Tacker in all its sparkly-ness is the Santa collage stamp with a pretty silver layer and navy card stock. I love how Tina used the swiss dots folder on the white layer, and there is a navy layer in behind. So pretty!

Another one of my friends and local stamp buddies, Marcie, sent me this TAC Santa card. I have this stamp too, but I didn't create any of them this year. I LOVE the liquid applique making him all fluffy and very 3-D.

The last closeup is a very pretty non-traditional Christmas snowman from Karin Hoeve. I really LOVE these colors!! There is also a pretty little star brad inside a silver bead-like embellishment holding the pretty pink poinsettia in place. Gorgeous, Karin!! He definitely is a sweet image, too.

Lastly, you can see the many cards (and a few gifts) spread out on my dining room table. I am so blessed by so many of you!! You are all a very special part of my life, and I thank you for that!! When I am feeling blue, all I have to do is go on-line where I can see my dear friends' blogs, email you, or chat with you on SCS. The Internet can be a wonderful place getting us all together like this in our own little corner's of the world, don't ya think?! (okay sorry for the mushy stuff) *wink*
I am not sure I will be on-line much the next couple of days except for work -- so . . . I just wanted to say, "I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS with family, friends, and especially those you hold very dear!!"
Hugs and best wishes!!

Wow! That's a lot of cards! I think I got a total of about 10 this year. Way down from "normal" years. And that includes the traditional cards from family/friends and the homemade ones from other crafters.
