Holiday Wishes.........

Well, I am absolutely stuffed from our wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! We took the easy route on Saturday night and went out to a wonderful restaurant with Ron's 2 brothers, their wives and his mom and her friend Frank. His other brother and his wife are out west visiting their son and there was a hole there for sure.

None of the nieces or nephews or grand kids were included this time, much to the dismay of some, but it made for a cozy gathering where we could actually visit with the old grown-ups lol! We LOVE having the whole family together but sometimes the brothers just want their mom to themselves for a good ol' visit!!

My mom had us for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal yesterday with her fabulous baked ham topped with rum and raisin sauce (oh my!) squash and of course the annual pumpkin squares, cherry pie and chocolate cookies.

Mom and I were able to escape for a refreshing after dinner (and MUCH needed) walk around the golf course, dodging the sand traps and water hazards and just having a fabulously fast paced, leg stretching visit.... Wonderful weekend!

I have a small menagerie of holiday cards for you using Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses with Papertrey Ink Tree Trimming Trio, Signature Christmas and Stocking Prints - all using the same layout, but just switching up the papers and sentiments.

I just love how this paper matches up perfectly with Aqua Mist, Scarlet Jewel, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst ......ALL those beautiful colours together make for gorgeous Christmas creations!!

You can see in the last photo with the multiple cards that some have the sentiment stamped on the side and some have the sentiment on the Spellbinders Tags Trio. That is because I muffed up a couple of the sentiments when I stamped them so I just stamped a tag and glued it over top of the mistake error -spot. I LOVE cardmaking!!!


  1. Bright and cheery! Love them...I do the same thing with tags to cover crooked/understamped mistakes :)

  2. I really love the colours you used.. such gorgeous cards, Bonnie. You're an inspiration!
