Explanations!!! LOL

OK, so rather than trying to fit all this in with the pictures... Dave with some of his goodies, Yes!  That IS a Dallas Cowboys Santa hat... he wears it every year to divy out the gifties!!!

Bubba: You notice the stocking?  My Mom cross stitched him one a LONNNNG Time ago and it is about the only tradition we have... what a FANTASTIC keeper, she cross stitched it onto Linen...this is one of the only women who's front of the cross stitch and the back of the cross stitch are darn near identical... a bit anal with the perfect stitches on the back!  LOL 

Hailey: She too got a WONDERFUL stocking from Mom.  You see the lil yellow blankie?  YUP!  Hailey went EVERYWHERE with that yellow blankie, so Mom made the blankie on the stocking to match... awwww... LOL  The OTHER Tradition that we have is that every year the kids get a Lifesavers Storybook in their stocking.  My Sister and I always have gotten one and it's just a part of my childhood that I have carried on to my kids, maybe they will continue with theirs....Do you see the pic of the HP Charger?  Yea, she was a bit miffed as she doesn't know what it goes to, so I showed her the shipping notice (grrr...long story) and the smile that followed after! :)

G'Pa:  That is Dave's dad Joe SR.  He had just come downstairs and I snapped a photo.  LOL  Then the pic of him and his confusion of what the heck we got him... Handheld games, figured they were a great change from the romance novels he reads...

All in all, a GREAT Christmas, not a bunch of gifts purchased at the store but the GREATEST GIFT EVER... My Family together!!!!! 

God Bless you all and Have a Merry Christmas, take time to reflect on your blessings!!!  Even during hard times, hold tight to the love you have in your life!!!!

Craft Room Redo-AGAIN!!!! :)

OK, so as promised I have PICTURES of my NEWLY RE DESIGNED HAPPY PLACE!!!!  I had outgrown my shelves and needed MORE space because, let's face it... I am NOT done shopping for toys!!!!!  LOL  SO... My Hubby came up with the idea of boxes in a stair step fashion and WOW but it gave me TONS more room and look at those buttons and punches... it looks like a store display!!!  I LOOOOVE IT... but of course NOW it looks like I dont have that many stamps so I am going to have to work on filling those gaps!!! **wink wink**  EDITED TO ADD!!!!!!   Bubba Helped Dave build these AWESOME Boxes... THANK YOU BUBBA~!!!!! <3 <3 <3

Christmas in Florida~ LOL

This popped into my head and I decided to go with it!  LOL

I grabbed some DP that Kate sent me by Kaiserkraft, some PTI in Avacado and Raspberry Fizz.  Some Taylored Tiny Twinkles are on the MS Wreath and bottom corner.  The ribbon was a pretty color so I kept it from a package of ????  hehe!  The image is MFT Catchin Some Rays, a scalloped scallop Dienamic was used on some cork for my sand... now the sentiment... I am SO in love with this sentiment... it's my Mantra for 2010... It's from the Limited Edition stamp set call Noel Sentiments.  Pretty simple to explain the card dontcha think???  SO, anyway, this is my idea of Kim at Christmas time... you know... ALL of Florida is ALWAYS warm... LOL

Some Play Time

My My but life has been kinda chaotic lately... BUT... I quickly made this card last week for a friend at work, he is a Falcon's fan and I of course am a Cowboy Fan.  I HATE Seattle and they are going to be playing the Falcons, SO... since the Cowboy's aren't going to be playing the Seahawks this year, I told Tim that I would jump on the Falcon Bandwagon.  LOL  Thus this CUTE PI card using Football PI and the Wagon full of Friends PI.  I only stamped 1/2 of the wagon, cleaned it and then stamped the back half over a bit to fit the football player in it.  I completed the wagon lines with my Copic multiliner pen.  The football player dude is wearing his "throwback" uniform, thus the red helmet... My PI is wearing her finest Cowboys gear complete with glittery star on her dress.  :)  Sun, Clouds and stars were all created using Dienamics.  Tried the Grass thing that Michele and Jody do and I have some work to do but not too bad!  ;)
Last night I was pilfering around in my paper pads and found this one that I ordered quite some time ago it's called "willow Bee" by Nicki Sivils.  I believe I got it from I heart paper... I hadn't inked up the Honey Bee PI yet, so it was PERFECT for this paper, which if memory serves me is why I purchased this paper pack!  Had grand plans... hmmm, maybe NEXT year!  LOL  The Mini scalloped dienamic was used along with some black $1 bin M's buttons and some Cats PJ's thread.  OH!!!!  DO YOU SEE MY STITCHING????  EEEK!!!!  LOL  It's a combo of not knowing what the heck I'm doing and "crazy stitching"  Did you know that you can't go backward very far on a sewing machine?  I had it in reverse to make the double stitch but apparently it wasn't liking that, so I trimmed the threads turned it around and went down again, thus the larger poke holes at top... **sigh** LOL  BUT... I'm working on it... NO! Those white dashes on the DP are PART OF THE PAPER, I did NOT do that!!!!!  BUMMER!!!!!  LOL
Lastly here is my DELISH Birthday Cake that Dave and Hailey got for me on my Birthday.  Dave cooked Finger Steaks and Fried Taters for Dinner (lurve that stuff) and we ate cake afterward.  It was DELISH and PURPLE!!!!! :)

Hope this post finds everyone doing well and healthy-my cold is still hanging on, what a simple term for this plague kinda sickness that I have.... man it's bad this year... 

It's back to the coal mine for me tomorrow, BE SAFE FRIENDS!!!!!
