I Hope You Had a Good Christmas

I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Tim and I had a nice one with our friends. We always go to Christmas Eve service with our friends. I love singing the carols - though the Lutherans have different words and extra verses. I love the candlelight blessing on the steps of the church. After church, Tim and I came home and made fondue. Our cheese fondue separated, but still was tasty. The dessert one was to die for.

Christmas morning I got up and did my walk and Tim rode his bike. I made sausage balls and artichoke spinach dip to take to our friends. We always have a great time with them on Christmas Day. This year we watched Grease, and us ladies sang all the words while the guys just cringed. I came home with too many of the cookies I took. The leftover sausage balls went in the freezer and there is still some dip left.

Now really, who can beat all that good holiday food and spending time with friends?

The Christmas cards I sent this year were made with a clear transparency as the base. I used my Big Shot to cut the Top Note out of SU Creamy Caramel that I stamped for the inside and the little Ruby Red bird on the Old Olive ribbon on the outside. I love making and sending Christmas cards. And I'm all ready thinking about next year's design.

Pretty card! I've never used a transparency as a base. Was it difficult to keep it fingerprint free?

My clear sheets came with a piece of tissue paper so I kept that on as long as I could to cut down on the fingerprints. I tried not to worry about it too much.

I am so impressed by the fact that you made all your cards and baked! I am just now getting my cards out... sigh. Oh well. My resolution can be to do them sooner next year!

I'm so glad I came across your blog through Julie's bookingmama blog. As a fellow book-lover, I wonder if you'd be willing to check out my website so I can send you the first chapter of my upcoming novel when it is through the editing process? My website is and if you sign up for my monthly newsletter in the little box on the homepage, I'll automatically send you the first chapter when I can.

Happy reading!
