Now that my son called and told me they love their gift, I can post the pictures of the quilt I made for them. This was actually started about 3 years ago - some things just take me a l-o-o-o-o-o-ng time to finish :( I have forgotten the name of this pattern. I have a quilt on my bed that's the same pattern. The kids loved it and asked me to make them one like it that would be large enough for their California King bed. So without further ado --

I made Chocolate Cards for most of my Christmas gifts this year. Under the chocolate bar was a check. A very special Thank You for the ideas goes out to Christina Carstensen for posting all the pictures of her fabulous chocolate cards she's made over the last several months. Be sure to visit her blog here to see her fantastic work.
Most of the stamps I used on these cards are from the new Christmas Story Collection available from Diana's Magnolia-licious store. She has the pictures of the stamps in color now! How great is that :D

The last Christmas gift I made for this year is a candle for Becky. I masked the scene of Edwin and Tilda ice skating. This idea came from Rene' I think. This was a little bit more coloring than the Stamp Camp candles were, but I'm pleased with the results.
Thank you for stopping by again and spending some time. Drop a comment so I'll know you were here.
