Christmas 2010

Well Christmas is over for another year, I hope you all had a fantastic Day with Family and friends.
I had my Daughters & family at my place, they all stayed Christmas Eve so that we could wake up with my Granddaughter, Nephew and Niece, altogether there were 13 of us, my Stampin Studio became a sleep out for the night with 2 adults and 2 children sleeping out there, my 2 Daughters and Granddaughter slept in the spare queen bed and Sonny slept on the floor beside the bed, my sister slept on the Settee so needless to say it was a full house, we were all up at 7am to open the pressies. 
A few photo's of our day

Christmas Eve
About 2am Christmas Morning off to bed at last
Christmas Morning ready to unwrap all those pressie's

Then in the afternoon the most fun was had with a water fight, my Graddaughter, my Nephew and the 2 big "boys",  at one stage I threw a bucket off water over one of the boys but made a hasty retreat when one of  them decided to get me back by throwing a bucket of water over me luckily I made the hasty retreat inside lol. 
There were lots of laughs and they all had a great time.

 Here is my sample

A quick Christmas Card

I used the Petals A Plenty Embossing folder for the wreath , sponged it with Pear Pazzazz, coloured the Berries with a Real red Stampin Write Marker, added a layer of Pear Pazzazz & Real Red cardstock, adhered it onto the main card, added a Red Satin ribbon .
Then Stamped Merry Christmas from the Christmas Greetings set in Real Red

I love these colours together
