Some more Christmas cards!

Hello!  I have a couple more cards using this months club set from The Stamps Of Life.  I am in love with the font in the Holly4Christmas set!  I also like how big the sentiments are, so that they can be the focus of the card.  My second card uses the lights from Holly4Christmas, but the sentiment is from Christmas2build-a new release for this month!

I am super organized this year for the holidays!  I have all of my Halloween cards ready to go, I have all three boys Halloween costumes and all of the accessories they need, and I have gotten a big start on my Christmas cards!  I have even started my Christmas shopping!!!!!

It seems like raising twins has gotten a lot easier just in the past couple of months.  I don't know what has changed, but I am feeling a lot more organized and in control.  I am hanging art back up on the walls (one of the twins was a major climber and loved to knock anything that was hanging down).  I am even going to put the end tables back in the family room, and dare I buy new lamps for those tables? (Those were broken years ago by one of the boys)  I feel like I am re-claiming my home! LOL!  No more gates, some of the child locks have come off of cabinets, but not all of them yet!  Very liberating, I tell ya!  Just thought I would share!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love these cards! The old fashioned Christmas lights are so nostalgic and they look beautiful on your card! And that scalloped circle is VERY creative! Great inspiration for Christmas cards!

Hi, Emily!! I LOVE your cards for today! That new TSOL set is really growing on me--I LOVE the string of tree lights! And for the first card, are you using the new Spellbinders? I forget what it's called (if that's what it is), but that design is so eyecatching. It's perfect with that huge sentiment and a little holly--and you are done :)

I remember when we were finally able to take down the baby gates (and cabinet latches) for good, and oh what a WONDERFUL feeling it was. ENJOY!!! Better days (or at least more sane ones) are coming :)

Oh, I love the fun new circle nestie you used on that first card! Onto my wish list it goes!

Glad to hear your life is getting a little more manageable, or at least a light at the end of the tunnel!

Your cards are so cute. Sorry I haven't been around lately. Getting ready for surgery Tuesday. So reality has control of me right now.

These are fabulous Christmas cards, Emily!

I can't wait 'til I can put out all our books back on the shelves, and take down the gates and locks! ;) Hooray for you! It'll be fun to shop for new lamps.
