The Elves were on strike

it's been a little while since i last posted anything, but i have to tell you that the elves were on took much negotiating to get them to work and i just wouldn't cross the picket line. the elves demands were not met and yet we were able to get them back to far so good. The tree is up and decorated, the gifts are wrapped and under the tree...and the stockings are hung by the chimney with care.

Today we were all inside. the weather is storms...hate ice, but love snow! anyway, i got a chance to work on some things without being interrupted. I have 15 nieces and nephews and they are all getting cash this Christmas. The money will go right into these envies. Directions were posted for these in an earlier post. I just love this Michael's $1 Merry Christmas stamp and aren't the little stocking stickers so cute?

Real Red Card Stock, SU Dashing DP, Scallop punch, circle punches and stocking embellies.

I also got to work with a new stamp set that i had ordered, and finally set up my Janome Mini Sewing machine.
Isn't this snowman image adorable? The snowman is from Fire Cracker Designs...i have no affiliation to this company in any way...the stamps arrived very quickly. and i am very happy with the quality.
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Bashful blue, white, designer DP
Ink: Basic Black, bashful blue, night of navy, only orange
Embellies: May Arts Ribbon, glitter glue, and stranded faux pearls
There's still so much left to do and only so many days to do it. I'll try to post again before Christmas. If I don't get the chance let me say it now, Merry Christmas to all. xoxo
