Hello Stampers! I got an unexpected day off today! And so did my kids! Now who couldn't use an unexpected day off the week before Christmas!! It really didn't seem that bad outside. There was a little bit of ice, with a trace of snow on top, but it was enough to cancel school. We definately took advantage of it. We made fudge, cookies, Christmas bark, decorated a gingerbread house, and finished our Christmas shopping!
Here are my girls getting into the Christmas spirit with their newly assembled and decorated gingerbread house. Every year we make one, and have for the past 6 years. This year was a little better for me though. I usually have to pipe on the icing while they stick on the candy. My poor old hands are always cramping up and aching by the time we are finished. This year after I assembled the house, I let them do the rest on their own. At first they said "This isn't so hard mom", but after a few more minutes they too were complaining about their hands hurting! They did a great job though, don't you think???
My card for today was one that I had offered in one of my Christmas card classes this year. I totally CASE'd this from Angie's blog at chicnscratch.typepad.com. I just love the colors and the layers on the snowflake. I have several customers who just can't seem to get enough of the punches, so this card made them happy! Here's the recipe:
