Whew!!!! I’M DONE!!!!!

by Myrna

I was beginning to wonder if I was going to make it this year! It took me all day yesterday to get Randy’s card done but I did it!!! I am totally exhausted!! I’m so pleased with how it turned out though. I made a Recessed Window card but I made it for the Magnolia mini stamps so I had to change all the measurements for a 4.25″ x 4.25″ card. I love how it turned out!! LOL! I LOVE these MINI STAMPS!!! First thing I need to do in 2011 is get my eyes checked so I can see them better! 🙂

Today I make my caramels that everyone loves! Then I just have the fudge and peanut brittle left. I do not like making peanut brittle! 😦 Standing at the stove for an hour is not my idea of fun. Randy loves it though so I do it.

Well, this is probably it for cards for this year. Thank you all for visiting this year and for leaving your wonderful comments. I occasionally go back and reread them and still will get a smile on my face. May you all have a wonderful Christmas and the happiest of New Years!!!!

SEE YOU IN 2011!!!

  5. Such a cute little card.. I love it Myrna.. Every detail is so perfect and believe me I know how hard it is to make those small cards… my first little card was harder to make than making a 6X6 card. As for making candy, not thanks you can make it all… You all are doing such a great job being in the festive season… My festive season went out the window with a cold, flu or whatever it is… wouldn’t mind but I hate having a fever… anyway… you have aMerry Christmas and a Happy New Year and enjoy all your hardwork you are putting into it….

  6. Oh this is the cutest Myrna! Your coloring looks awesome on these minis (are they ever so small)! Such a sweet scene, Randy will love this! Beautiful job Myrna! Happy Holidays to you and your family! big hugs, Angela

  7. Wow Myrna, this is a beautiful card and you’ve done a fab job with the layout and coloring! Love love love this! Hugs, Cami

  8. Another winner of a Christmas card for Randy!! Will certainly remind him of the good ole’ days when he went tobogganing or sledding with his brothers and sis. Those were the days weren’t they?? Reminds me of the weather we will be getting in SD tomorrow-snow and more snow! You know how much I HATE snow but our snow on Friday was beautiful as you could see the perfect, delicate snow flakes on my dark coat as I was scurrying in and out of stores. They were stunning! Have to buy Miss Madyson a toboggan or sled-but will wait on that purchase for a year or two. I know what you mean about getting your eye exam but when you get to be a certain age there’s no turning back.

    Job well done this Christmas, Myrna!

  9. Sounds like we will be able to go sledding for ourselves in the next couple of days. Your card is awesome. The scene is perfect and I love the “snow”. Glad you are finsihed with cards and now on to the candy !!!
