Jolly Old Saint Nick

Here is a card I made a little while ago, but haven't managed to get it uploaded yet. It's a good thing too, since I haven't done any new stamping in EONS! I don't think I'm going to get to any stamping today either. Whhaaaaa!



The Santa image and all the paper on the card is from a My Mind's Eye pack of Christmas papers I purchased way back, they were sooooooo scrumptious! The only stamping I did on the card was the sentiment. Everything else was from the MME pack. It was super easy, as you can imagine! The colors of the paper and tag are SO rich and elegant......

I also wanted to share a picture I was LUCKY enough to capture of my son in one of this games this past weekend. Let me just give you a little info about Youngest Son before you try and guess which one he is in this shot.....he is only 5'1" tall and just hit the 100 pound mark....can you guess? Yep, he's the guy with the 2 foot vertical jump, hands in place to steal the rebound from the 6 footers surrounding him! It's funny, but he often does come up with the rebound because he's quicker than a speeding bullet and can jump higher than most 6 footers! That's my boy!!!

I've got to run and take a shower for BSF. No time for chitchat, bummer!

Hugs,
Amy

  13. Hi Amy! I don't know if this is a Firefox only issue, just wanted to let you know that your third columnd (that I think goes on the right side of your posts) it's actually "under" your posts (making the page very long).
