Christmas Cards

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Today, I'd like to share the handmade cards we received this year. Not all are SU! only, but wanted to share with you how creative our friends are. Here are the cards along with the creator's name:

This is from my friend Johann Ham in Delaware. The scan doesn't show it, but this is an acetate card and just lovely IRL.
This is from my friend Betty Vogel. She is crazy about bears, so all of her cards have a bear on them somewhere.
This card is from my downline, Diane Belcher. She used the new waffle paper on this as the silver layer.

This is from my sideline Toni Heylek. The scan doesn't do it justice because of the button.

This was my card for the CYRious Stampers Holiday party. It's from my downline Pat Whitley.

This card is also from Pat Whitley, but it's the one she and hubby sent out this year.

This card is from my friend Sheri Hughes, who lives in Santa Maria.

This card is from my upline, Maureen Rauchfuss.

And, this card is from my Bestest Friend, Lorea Lacy who also lives in Delaware.

I hope that you enjoyed seeing these 'works of art' that came our way during the holidays. I think now is the time that I should be thinking about what I'm going to do for my Christmas cards next year and maybe I can get them out early for a change! Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to come back on January 3 for the New Year challenge and blog candy give-away!

Merry Christmas!

I just want to wish everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a joyous NEW YEAR!

Look for a New Year's challenge with prizes on January 3. My New Year's resolution is to post a challenge at least once a quarter! So enjoy this time with family and friends and check back on January 3 to see what the challenge and the prize will be!

CYRious Stampers Holiday Party

Last night was the CYRious Stampers Holiday Get-Together. We all went to TGI Fridays (gotta love the place...especially when the tables are already decked out for the holidays with the red/white striped tops)! To thank my downline for their friendship and contributions to our little group, I made them all a little something. I made them each a decorated glass block with holiday lights inside. I made them all a little different, yet the same. (of course I can't show them lit, as there wasn't an outlet near our table!).

This is a page I made in My Digital Studio showing the gifts.

Denise is a Barista at Starbucks (now that's the job to have!) and she brought us all a beautiful coffee mug and a package of the delicious Christmas Blend coffee! Thank you so much Denise!!!!!!

We also each brought a gift (craft related and not more than $20 in value), in a brown grocery sack and played a Right/Left game. It was so much fun. I forgot to get pics of the individual gifts (duh!). Pat received a craft organizer from Shelly. Shelly received a beautifully decorated recipe box from Diane. Diane received a framed piece of stamped art from me, Denise received a card keeper with lots of pre-made cards from Pat. I received the new buttons, a sampling of the Designer Series Paper and a sampling of the fabric from the new Occasions Mini from Denise. All the gifts were wonderful and very well received.

We had a wonderful time talking, eating and catching up with each other. I so appreciate my downline and I am certainly looking forward to what we can accomplish in the New Year. I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season and that New Year brings you all the things that you deserve!!!!!
