xmas cards

I have been thinkin long & hard this year about my Christmas cards

usually I do funny pics of the boys with cute sayings & call it done

but this year Doug says "Let's do somethin different"

firstly you are all thinkin "what does Doug have to do with the cards?"

yep also my first thought...then I thought well maybe he should do them...that'd be different


but then I woke up & realized if anyone wants a Christmas card this year

I'd better get started :)))

So for this year I decided Christmas is about St.Nick

I loved this stamp from Tim Holtz as soon as I saw it

it just screamed Merry Christmas to me :)

so I went with the post card theme

with a wish of peace to all

on the back I will include a picture
I just haven't took it yet :)))

thanks for comin by
