The almost last Christmas Post for 2011

Hello Friends and family!

This will be the last post with Christmas cards. I have one more with Christmas Thank you cards that my son and I will send out for the people that have thought of us this holiday season. Due to all of the expenses for Senior year and post high school tuition, I had to do an extreme cut back on Christmas gifts this year. So I don't think I will need too many thank you cards to send out. Although we have already recieved at least 3 gifts in the mail...

I am closing in on my last few posts for 2011, so I thought this would be a fitting quote to start off with...

I know those words oh so well. I never intended to be a single mom. I always knew myself well enough to know it would not be my strength. But here I am. God knew better. It has been the hardest experinence of my life, but so far, we are both still standing...

About today's cards....I went to a Stampin' Up "Stamp Camp" through my friend Kathy- where we made these cards. We made a few more, but they were more for Thanksgiving, so I didn't post. Maybe eventually. Kathy designed the snowman card which is also a magnet. I thought it was very cool.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Until next time....



  1. Hi Rae,

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog which you found via Craftyhazelnut's challenge blog - and for your lovely comments about my card - I really appreciate them.

    I love these cards that you made at your Stamp Camp. Dasher is one of my favourite SU stamps and I have used him heaps since I bought him a few weeks ago. And I love the snowman - he has been on my Wish List for a while now. I think that all the SU Snowman stamps are adorable.

    God bless you this Christmas Rae and may peace abide with you in the coming year.

  2. Hi Rae, These are very cute cards! I like the fact that one is a magnet! You'll have to let me know how it's done and attaches to the card. Thanks for sharing!
