Rejoicing with You

Card 9 of 10

Check back tomorrow for my last homemade Christmas card this year!

I’m sorry for the quality of this photo. I had planned to take a photo of one of my cards today when the sun was shining but slept the afternoon away. Unfortunately, I was slammed by the flu yesterday. Mr. Stamp for Sanity says “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink,” meaning, he reminded me to get my flu shot but I just never got around to it! Today my doctor called in a prescription for Tamiflu so I’m hoping I’ll feel better by Christmas!

The tree is up. Lights. Still no ornaments. Shopping still to be done. No presents wrapped. Not one.

We’ve decided — by necessity — to simplify our decorations this year. No Santas. No snowmen. No wreaths or garlands.

We’re keeping the focus on the reason for the season…Christ’s birth…and just setting up our two Nativities.

Nothing else is important.

Wishing you a Mary Christmas, too!

If you’ve already made and/or sent your Christmas cards this year, think about sending one of these beautiful cards as a thank you or a thinking of you card. Didn’t get to your cards yet? You know, Christmastime begins on Christmas! We have twelve whole days to celebrate the season! So, it’s not too late to send cards to the special people in your life! Relax. Enjoy the season. After the hustle and bustle, sit down and spend some quiet creative time making cards, and writing handwritten messages. They will touch those who receive them, in ways you can’t anticipate!

Merry Christmas!

First Christmas
This Christmas may you know Him more fully through the love and grace He so richly bestows.

This is the Christmas card I just received from my good friend, Ruth Murphy, the one who introduced me to the joy of stamping! Isn’t it a beautiful, gentle reminder to keep Christ in Christmas?

NEW! Ornamental Elegance Kit

5 Dec


The ornament on the cover of our holiday catalog is such a hit that Stampin’ Up! has made it available to you  — just in time to deck the halls with terrific trimmings you’ve made yourself! This ornament took a while to make — stamping, cutting with Framelits and Big Shot and more. Stampin’ Up! has simplified this fun project so that you can quickly and easily make these beautiful ornaments. With this kit, you don’t need the Big Shot or the Framelits or the set or the stamp pads! All you need is the kit, a glue gun, scissors, and adhesive! (Our Anywhere Glue Sticks [104045] are perfect for assembly.) Want greeting or place cards to go with those ornaments? The Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set (W 128048 C 128051) gives you perfect coordination. Fancy a little sparkle and shine? Sprinkle on our Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter (102023)!

The Ornamental Elegance Kit (132832) is $14.95 and includes:

  • Die-Cut Cardstock Elements
  • Cherry Cobbler 3-1/2″ Scalloped Tulle Ribbon
  • Natural Linen Thread
  • Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons
  • Large Pearl Basic Jewels

Order these now so you will have plenty of time to make 10 projects for Christmas decorating or giving! Available while supplies last.

Until we meet again…stay sane stampin’!
