Happy New Year!

Where did Christmas go?  I can't believe we are already into January 2016!  Time really does feel like it is flying.  The picture above was at the mall- it was so pretty I had to share it!

I wanted to share the Christmas cards my co-workers and I made to send out to other co-workers.  We do it every year and really have a blast making them!  The glue was really flying this year but I managed not to get any glue or glitter in my hair!


Here are some pictures during the construction.  Now the wreaths I did make at home.  They involved more stamping and cutting than we really had time for in 1 night.  This is Stampin Up's Wonderous Wreath set.  I love this set!  Below, you can see how it looked on the cards. 

The finished card is below.  We used all kinds of different patterned Christmas paper.  I love how they came out.  It was truly a fun night to be able to get together and share the fun - it's priceless!
We also made some Christmas "Crackers" that night.  At least that is what I always called them.  I just learned they are called Crackers because in the 'old' days they used to make a cracking sound when you opened them.  These didn't crack open but they were fun to make.
Well, Christmas is over and I am on to other projects.  Bring on 2016!  I hope this year brings lots of Health and Happiness to us all! 


  1. Happy New Year Chris! All these cards are AMAZING! I still want a job in your office. :-)
