Peace....Until the Board Games Start!

This will most likely be my final card and final post until after Christmas. I really do need to get busy! I have my daughter's menu request list to prepare for! The apple crisp, pumpkin pie, wild rice chicken soup won't make themselves! I MUST now vacuum up the Bubble and walk away...for a few days.

I hope you all have a fabulous holiday. Merry Christmas! Happy Hanuka! Happy family time. It's about the gift of family and friends not the gifts under the tree. (Unless those gifts are card making goodies...) No, seriously, I am kidding! All I want for Christmas is my family. Those who will be here. Those who will be 'skyped' in and those we will talk to on the phone!

Along with family time I am SO looking forward to board games and 'app' games...Heads Up...Catch Phrase, UNO, Win, Lose, or Draw anyone? Not to mention daughter Amy's famous seasoned Chex Mix! But I could do without all the games, all the electronic devices, all the gifts, even the Chex Mix...bring on my family!

Still having fun with one of my new PowerPoppy sets. I got this idea from a sample in her shop.

Peaceful Poinsettia

~PowerPoppy Poinsettia stamped with Versamark and embossed with Ranger Seafoam White colored with Copics and layered
~Sentiment stamped with SU Soft Suede from PowerPoppy Poinsettia set
