Twas The Night Before Christmas...

And it's time to turn in. :0) But before I do, I would like to wish you all a wonderful Holiday and a New Year filled with love, happiness, family and friends. 

My family won't be here till Thursday and we will then start celebrating through Sunday! We are going to have lots of fun.

I still have cleaning to do and lots of presents to wrap but I always get it done. Tomorrow it will be just my hubby Lee, my Mom and sister Mary. So tomorrow instead of opening gifts we will be frantically wrapping them! LOL But rest assured we will be taking lots of breaks for food and fun.

Please take care and thank you for making my year a very special one. I am so excited to share my new and improved blog after the first of the year! 

So I'll be back on Friday January 4th. I hope you'll stop back too.
 
Till my next post...

1/2" Paper Strip Christmas Ornament



One video down...one to go. :0)

 I hope you aren't to distracted by my kitten, Titan, climbing all over me while we are taping. It has become increasing difficult to do any paper crafting let alone video tape a project! At least the kittens are FUN!

I have seen this ornament made a couple of ways. I did mine like Frenchie Martin of Stamping With Frenchie. If you ever need a quick bit of inspiration she has so many wonderful cards, 3-D projects and lots of videos to watch!

I think I will have to give up on posting the second video till tomorrow morning. Hope you will check back to see it. Very fun Christmas tag! Hint: I LOVE how I made Santa's belt buckle!

Take care and Happy Stamping!

Till my next post...

Blog Candy Winners!

Hello my lovely blog followers,

Well, I finally drew for the blog candy. I have 2 extra surprises too! I video taped my sister Mary, Jasper and the kittens drawing for the blog candy. It is such a cute video. However, I am having some problems downloading it. I will still post it but I didn't want to wait any longer to announce the winners. So here they are without further ado. :0)

First place winner is Karen Sutton

Second place winner is Joanne(she's said she was a jewel kinda girl)

And last but not least is Kathy H. 

Kathy and Joanne, you will be receiving some wonderful Christmas papers and embellishments. I just know you will love them!

Please email me at stampinshirl@aol.com with your mailing addresses and I will get them out ASAP!


I absolutely loved all your answers. I will really miss not having a tree this year but I know I will come up with something my kittens can't destroy! LOL 

Take care and as always I wish you time to be creative but most of all time to stamp!

Stamping Hugs,
Shirley

PS. I have two more videos downloading right now. Let's hope I can get them posted before midnight! UGH!!!
