Red, White & Blue Christmas

I had such a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend with three of my four sisters, two BILs, my brother, and my parents. The best part was getting to stamp with my cute sisters and seeing how different our cards were. I'll try posting a few of theirs later. I don't know if I got pictures of them all. (Darn it.)

My parents have a huge dining room table that we commandeered for our stamping supplies. We eventually had to bring up a folding table to make more room. I only brought a portion of all my stuff, and I took up half of the table. I bought the cutest Inkadinkado Christmas stamp set from Michael's. So you could say that I found my groove with my new stamp set. And here's a peek at what I produced.

Darling cards!!!

So glad you got to spend the holiday with your fam. Mine all live an hour south in Orem/Provo, so that's where we ventured down to. I made them all gratitude journals that they loved--I'll post them tomorrow on my blog.

Good luck getting ready for Christmas!

I love your cards! Which stamp did you use for that swirly thing on the bottom of many of the cards?

I like your "recipe card" I might have to "steal" the idea :D
