Christmas Ideas and the
Very Best of Pinterest Pins

Give out loads of holiday smiles with this
terrific gift card and Hershey Kisses holder:

The Santa is actually a Target Gift card and I put the gift receipt in the top pocket. Normally, the gift card would go in the pocket and you can check out the how-to video thanks to this Pinterest pin:

...and another blogger's Christmas variation:

Here's a cute Snoopy card idea made with punches:

It gave me some inspiration to create a
few birthday cards this month:

I got the little Woodstock online as a piece of clip art that I printed and cut out. You can print my version HERE. After I cut out Woodstock, I cut the legs from the body and pasted them in a sitting down position.

Here's a lovely way to send out a thank you
or a December birthday card:

My MISTI helped me mass produce this card for all of the thank yous I'll need this holiday season, and a mask let me sponge in the SU Pool Party ink where needed.

These little treat boxes were based on a previous post HERE:

Finally....a table centerpiece that's
quick and easy:

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year
and I'll be taking time off from blogging to enjoy it.
Happiest of holidays with abundant joy
and creativity in 2017!...
and I like to end each year with this poem
that my friend, Michele, sent to me
many Christmases ago:

Twas the night before Christmas, I’m glued to the tree.
I’m wondering what Santa will bring just for me.
Could it be new cardstock or inkpads or lace?
"Or stamp sets," I said, with a big smile on my face.
And that’s when I saw him..."Hi Santa," I said.
To which he replied, "You should be in bed!"
"Oh, dear!" I said, "I’ve just been caught...
But I was hoping to see what goodies you brought."
He took a brief look at my room where I work.
Then he shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk.
...And I heard him exclaim, as he put it in gear,
You’ve got enough crap, I’ll see you next year!
