What A Wunderful Holiday!

Well another christmas has come and gone....It was wonderful to get to see so many family members over the holidays this year. And of course it was fun to watch our nieces and nephews open up their presents. I loved our conversations about Santa Claus, etc. so much fun!! I'm not ready to take down our tree just yet and I'm justifying it because there are still a couple of gifts under the tree that haven't been opened yet:) No cards to share with you today although there should be a lot to come in the near future with all of the craft supplies I got! Wow I am a lucky girl:) But I did want to share a quick picture of the mondo egg we got from one of our chickens the other day:

It's massive! I definetly feel sorry for whoever laid that one! Poor girl. Jesse and I both have our guesses as to who did it (he picked Sophia and I picked Blanche). Can't wait to have a huge New Year's Day breakfast with our friends to use up all of the eggs that have stockpiled in the fridge!

I hope all of your holidays were wunderful too!:)

thanks for stopping by!

Long time no post.....

Wow, I have been a bad blogger....It's been so long since my last post and trust me I've still been busy making cards:) 'Tis the season to spend so much time on your to-do lists that it doesn't leave a lot of time for fun (like updating your own blog or checking out other people's:) I managed to give everyone on my mailing list a home-made card this year and I had a lot of fun. I like to make different cards, but it can be a lot of work, maybe next year everyone will get the same one...who knows. All of my gifts are wrapped, the house and tree is decorated and my baking is ready to be enjoyed, now I can relax in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate and take in my christmas tree in all of its Charlie Brown goodness:) (In my opinion, the uglier the better). Here are a couple of christmas cards that I've made recently. Both of these cards were scrap-lifted from some talented people over at splitcoaststampers.
