I caught a glimpse of the big guy in the red suit last night, but Ann & my favorite guy wouldn't wake up to come look!  I barked & barked but they ignored me! 

Thank you for all your cards.  They're bark-a-licious!  I'd love to send you all a card.  Instead, I'll let you take a peek at one of my favorites this year.  Ann keeps talking about the "reason for the season" so I'm sure hers would be different from mine.  Mine would be this one that I designed for their daughter Mitzi & her family.  It has a gift certificate for them to take their family out to the movies, buy popcorn & sodas & maybe have change.


I hope you like it too.  If you look closely, it features a Polka Dot embossing folder for the Big Shot that will be in the Occasions Mini that is en route to many of you now.  It also uses the Winter Post set & that Dasher stamp that looks a lot like the reindeer that were hanging out with the guy in the big red suit last night.

We've got more Stampin' Up! card ideas coming your way soon.  I hope – and Ann prays – that you have a peaceful holiday that celebrates & concentrates on what it truly important – & that our troops come home to their families safely & soon.

Oh yeah…and congratulations to Jeanne Atkins of Citrus Heights, CA who won a pack of 8-1/2" x 11" textured IN Color card stock for commenting on our Top Note Gift Card Holder video.  You are all so nice!  Not one of you mentioned that there was a typo in the beginning!  (we do tend to work late at night on these things)
