Goodbye 2015!

Hi there!

I wanted to write one more post before the end of the year to share some recent cards I've created. I've also thrown in some other random photos - just because.

We had a wonderful Christmas with my family. We always head to my sister's house for a cozy night. Her home is filled with holiday warmth and gorgeous decor! Here's some pics from Christmas Eve.

Her family room is so cozy - just love it!

Here's the staircase in the foyer.

The living room is beautiful!

She sets a lovely table too! This is one of three.

Here I am with my three sisters, cleaning up in the kitchen after dinner.

And one of me and my hubby.

We had such a fun night! Then Christmas day was spent with our boys. Always calm and quiet and so relaxing. Of course I forgot to take pics. I guess I was too excited opening presents. Here's my favorite one, from my two sons. They are so clever, aren't they?

 I will be wearing this A LOT!!! Isn't it fun?!

I've been creating some cards lately too. Here's just a few.

Love this sweet MFT set called Adorable Elephants!

 On this one I used the ornament stamp, which is included in MFT's Santa's Elves stamp set.

The rest of the cards use Simon Says Stamp exclusive products, most from their DieCember release. If you have any questions, let me know in a comment.

For this last card I used the Heart Vent die from Simon Says Stamp's, newest release, You Have My Heart.

I only have two days left of work! My last day before retiring is Thursday, Dec. 31st! Ahhhhhh!!! I can't believe it's actually gonna happen! I'm excited - a little bit scared - but mostly excited. I'm looking forward to having more time to start visiting and commenting again on your blogs - I miss it! And I'm excited to have more time to create too! I'll still be running the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group, along with the challenges over there. The current one is water coloring. Would love to see you head on over to check it out!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Here's to a fabulous, crafty and creative 2016! ♥
