*Merry Christmas*

Here it is, Christmas afternoon.... I am using my laptop on my new laptop lap desk.... the presents are all unwrapped, most of the mess is cleaned up, the turkey is stuffed and in the oven and the veggies are all ready to just be turned on in a few hours.

We have had a wonderful couple of days.  Last night our good friends came by for nibble and games, although we never got to the games.  We had a great night chatting and laughing.  This morning my father in law joined us for gift opening and brunch, and this evening my mother in law and her husband will be joining us for dinner.  I would like to get the table set in the next little while as well as a plate of sweets that we'll serve after dinner.

I was spoiled with some fun things this year.... two great bowling balls from my sons, a GPS unit from Bruce, a new knife and Spellbinders from my Mom, Wii Fit Plus and a book from my sister and niece, this laptop desk from my other sister, a pretty necklace from Shannon and Hailey.  Definitely got spoiled!

I have one final Christmas card to share with you today...

I made this card on Wednesday using the blue piece that I had punched with my new Martha Stewart corner and edge punches that I bought a few weeks ago.  I punched this piece just to see how it worked and then set it aside.  Mom liked this card so  much that she made one as well!

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  blue shimmer by unknown; Bazzill bling white
*Tools:  Martha Stewart Corner and Edger Punches; Marvy Snowflake punches
*Embellishments:  Karen Foster glitter brad

As a self-proclaimed snowflake freak, I think this card is perfect!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!
