A Belated Christmas Wish!

I was hoping to get on here before Christmas, but my internet access has been sporadic as we shuffle furniture around to put in floors (which are now done!) and paint (still lots of that to do!).
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a lovely day celebrating with family and friends. We always get together with my Mum's side of the family at a park, and the rain held off for the perfect amount of time. We were able to have a casual picnic lunch, and exchange gifts before the rain set in. Then we had dinner here with Dave's family (15 of them!). We always host it, and this year was no different, despite bare gyprock walls! No one minded and the extra space was nice :o) Boxing Day was spent recovering, and we also got stuck into painting downstairs. Today we visited my Dad's side of the family in Wollongong, then came back home for more painting. We're trying to get downstairs finished before we head up north for a week by the beach after New Year. Dave's got lots of New Year's Eve balloons to do though, so that might get in the way of that plan!
I managed to mail out 160 Christmas Cards...not quite as many as I had hoped, but I had to cut myself some slack this year. I kept my cards REALLY simple this year (thanks Circle Scissor!), and did 2 colour combinations:
I love the Snow Swirled set, so that was the one I chose to use. It's hard to tell in the pic, but the trees are all glittery.
To those I didn't manage to get a card sent out to, I hope you like this cyber version, and I hope you had a joyous Christmas, surrounded by loved ones.

Materials (all Stampin' Up!)
stamps: Snow Swirled, Occasional Greetings
ink: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Shara Sand, Chocolate Chip
card: Whisper White, Kraft, Sahara Sand
other: Circle Scissor, 2 way glue pen, Dazzling Diamond Glitter, Walk in the Park DSP (retired), Ski Slope DSP (retired)

  2. Wow, 160 cards, and that's pared back??? I sent 38 and received about 21. No-one seemed to have time to even buy them. Yours are lovely. Hope you can start to see an end in site for the renoes.
