Merry Christmas...

Hi guys. 
     Sorry for taking yesterday off from my blog, but we had grocery shopping to do and well, you add the Thanksgiving meal to the regular shopping and what can I say.  We didn't even get home until 8:45pm last night.  Thankfully the M&Ms are wonderful about helping us to put it all away. 
     While I am on the subject of  Thanksgiving dinner,  I have a little fun information to share. While we were on our way to school last Thursday Madison was able to win a 15lb Butterball Turkey off of the radio.  :O)  It was her first time at trying to win anything  and she was the 9th caller, so she not only won the Butterball Turkey, she also won a 1/2lb box of chocolates from a local candy shop here in our little town.  The awesome chocolates are all gone, but boy did we have fun trying them all and loving them as we did.  I am only bringing this all up as Madison is very proud of herself for winning and she is even telling us that Thanksgiving is on her this year.  lol...  Um sure!  :O) 
     Ok, let's get onto today's card.  This might look a little familiar to you all as this is actually the same style of my Halloween card that I made.  I really enjoyed making that card and when I found this paper from last year's papers that my friend Amy Y sent to me,  well I just could not resist making this into a Christmas card and playing around with some more heat embossing.  I can not believe that I am slowly, but surely getting addicted to it. 
     I know that in my pictures that the Scarlett Jewel from PTI doesn't look like it matches the stripes from MME, but I assure you that in person they look terrific together.  :O)  I really love how the white bow and the white dots just bring out those stripes and make it look kind of like a candy cane. 
     So, before I head off to bed I am really hoping that you will head over to my 'Kids Create Two' blog to see a couple of  drawings  that Madison made up tonight.  She was having some fun just playing around with her pencils and it would be so fantastic if you would check it out and leave her some nice feedback.  It would really mean the world to her if you could.    I know you will as you are all so awesome.   Thanks so much.
     So, as I have talked your eyes off tonight I will wish you all a wonderful evening and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs Lisa G

Such an effective design! Love it!
And why is it that our kids are always so lucky? My daughter wins *everything*. And I mean *everything*... If she enters something, there's little point anyone else even bothering, lol. (she's a great person to have along for raffles and Tombolas though!)
Enjoy your Thanksgiving! x

Sweet! Love the simplicity and DP...a great combo!
Congrats on your wins....chocolate and turkey are delish, just not together.
Happy Thanksgiving Day!
