I'm gettin nuthin for Christmas.....

I loved that song when I was a kid and I still find fun in singing it to my kids. Of course, they don't think it's all that funny! They would really have to do something very bad for me to cross them off my Christmas list. but it's still fun to tease.

That reminds me of a Christmas when I was about nine years old. My older brother told everybody he met, that he was getting a pair of skates for Christmas. He was very sure of himself because he had peeked at his presents. Well, when mom got wind of it, she pulled the package and unwrapped it, put a bundle of twigs in it and rewrapped it and put it back under the tree all while my brother was at school. You should have seen his face when he opened it up on Christmas morning. Don't worry, mom didn't let him whine and cry for too long before she pulled out his brand new skates, but I don't think he peeked in his packages anymore after that. At least, he didn't brag about it if he did.

Now that I've shared that with you, it's time for another Christmas card. I posted this on SCS the other day, but forgot to post it here.

I started with some Red and Olive card stock and some Daisy D DP. I used another one of my Changito Christmas stamps and colored him with my Copics (R46,R59,E00,E33,E47,G99). I added stickles to the ornament and the tips of his shoes. The oval was cut using my nestabilities and the borders were made using my Martha Stewart scallop BP and my Fiskars threading water punch. Add some cuttlebug embossing, some snowflake embellishments and the sentiment on dimentionals and this is what you get. I am so hooked on these stamps. I hope you don't get tired of them.

I'm off to do a taste test and make some money. Hope you have a great day and enjoyed the card and story.

CUTE card, Becky! Funny story about your brother! Your Mom should have had those new motion-sensitive gift bags that sound off an alarm if anyone is peeking! I used to pick at the corners of my wrapped presents! I don't know what I thought I was going to gain by doing that!?!?!
