Having a Blast!


Two things I love about this time of the year: The holiday season is upon us and buying pajamas for my girls. There's so much fun in decorating and planning the holidays. I love the rich, regal colors of the season. Everyone knows Tinkerbell is my all time favorite so I made her TinkerChristmasbella and used my new toys I won from Suzanne at Scrap Bitz's blog. I love and adore this paper, Wassail by Basic Grey and the Prima flowers. I'm pretty pleased with how she came out.

It's a tradition around our house on Christmas Eve to get the girls p.j.'s. Now Marc buys them for the girls, but I now get to buy them for the two new grandbabies! When I was this Tilda in her nightgown, my babies popped into my mind. I had the best time putting her together.

I hope you all enjoy this season as much as I do, but more importantly, I hope we all remember the reason for this season. Maybe with the economy the way it is, it will help us all to put more thought into our gifts rather than money. That's what I'm planning on doing. Join me!

Hi Susan,

I am on both Bellaholics and Mangnolia groups. So I am going to comment on both cards.

Love the brightness of the Bella. She is a happy card indeed.

Now the Laughing Tilda I love. I hope to buy it soon. It also reminds me of Christmas Eve as a child and now with my grandchildren.

You have done wonderful work on both cards.
