Christmas Card 2009

Where HAVE I been??? Well .... after spending so many days in the hospital with Mom, then spending several additional days with her going to various doctors' appointments, hair appointments, and shopping, wrapping and running errands I am waaaaayyyy behind on getting Christmas stuff done!! Aaaack!!! Actually, though, I am just grateful to have her here and on the mend. It has kinda put everything in perspective for me, so I really am not too worried if I don't get everything done ...

Millan.netBUT ... my Christmas cards are on the home stretch (HUZZAH!!). I FINALLY got everyone together and able to hold still for about 4 minutes so we could snap this photo for the card. Whew!!

AND, I KNEW that I would be one of those who were CERTIFIABLE enough to put the ding-dang pop-up Christmas tree die in the middle of my card!! Yup!! The first time I saw it I thought, "You would have to be NUTSO to attempt to put that dude in ALL your Christmas cards!!" (I knew deep down that I was probably going to be one of those NUTSO people!!)

Anywho .... there ya have it!! AND I also finished my mom's digital scrapbook. I have been trying IN VAIN since FRIDAY to upload it to youtube so I could share it with you .... seems youtube does NOT want me to have music with it. Not quite sure what is going on there. I DID successfully upload it a couple of times with no music, but it is just NOT the same when there is nothing playing in the background!! Sheesh!! I just may have to upload it for ya "musicless!!" I am going to give it a couple more tries, though, so wish me luck!!!

AND don't forget that we are nearly to the 20th ... which can ONLY mean ONE thing, right??? The FREAKS are comin' to town!! Mark your calendar ('cause I know y'all have NOTHING else to do in the next week, right?!?) and come back late Saturday night to see what we have in store for ya!!

Stamps: Medallion, Serene Snowflakes, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Bordering Blue

What a beautiful card and your family picture is wonderful. I'm sure all who receive the card will know how much work you put into each pop-up tree and then know they are loved.
Merry Christmas!

The trees were cute but I couldn't have done it, where do you get all that energy?
Merry Christmas girlfriend,
