I hope you all had as wonderful a Christmas as I did!   It was great having the whole family here to exchange gifts and sit around the extended table for a ham dinner--13 of us, including my 96-year-old Dad and our 4 grandchildren.  Everything got done in plenty of time:  the shopping, cleaning, gift wrapping, decorating, cooking and mailing out of the 100+ cards I made!

Now that my stamping break is over, here's the card I made today for the first birthday of the year on January 2.  The dsp and glitter star were on my table (so why not use them) along with Cornflower Blue Archival Ink which matches the dsp perfectly.  To keep the silver twine in place, I first made a tiny notch at the top and bottom of the card front, something I plan to continue from now on.

Have you seen the Sale-a-bration catalog from SU! yet?  It's fabulous!  I'm looking forward to spending the gift certificate I got for Christmas at my upcoming SU! party!

This is just beautiful, Doris! Glad you had a good Christmas and that your Dad could join you. That made it extra special to have all the generations together! Hope the rain we're getting isn't translating to snow up your way!
