Christmas Photos

I realized, sometime in the middle of the night last night, that I hadn't posted a link to any photos from our Christmas celebrations. We had a wonderful time with our family in Iowa, although the trip was much too short. We were "treated" to snow while we were there and temperatures that weren't meant for human enjoyment. It was even too cold for Ernie - he'd bound out the door and right into a snow drift, where he'd promptly squat and jump back out as quickly as he'd gone in. Alice and I went shopping at a little boutique in Prairie City called "All Around The House". It was a crafty little place, so it was right up my alley! I found a really pretty red crock and red dessert bowls to match my kitchen. I don't think I've used another bowl for anything since we got back home. They've come in especially handy since I'm on the liquid tonsillectomy diet. I really think everything tastes better when eaten from a red dessert bowl! Here are pictures from our visit to Iowa:

We spend Christmas Eve with family here, in Missouri. Instead of buying gifts for everyone, this year, we had a "Chinese Christmas". That was, especially, fun so I hope we continue to do that in years to come. Mom and Dad had their house decorated really neat for the holidays. They had made luminaries from paper bags with stars punched in them and had placed them along their driveway. They were beautiful!! The decorations inside were gorgeous, too. Everyone brought "snacky" food and there was still a LOT left even after we were all stuffed! Here are pictures from our Christmas celebrations at my parents' house:

Here is another card I made, this morning, from today's sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The designer paper is from Hobby Lobby (Memory Block) and I used SU cardstock in Tempting Turquoise, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, and Whisper White. The bird was stamped on designer paper, cut out, and then pieced over the same image stamped on Whisper White CS. The flowers are from the same stamp set (A Little Birdie Told Me) and are colored with SU markers. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

This is such a cute card. The paper goes so well with the image.
