Christmas Wishes

We've spent a few days buried under snow. First while we were visiting my mum and then when we arrived back home. We typically don't get snow in December so the fact that we have snow so close to Christmas is rather exciting. On Friday night and a few hours on Saturday we dug my mum out of the snow. She had just over 3 ft of snow. We decided to relieve the roof of approx 4000lbs of snow since we knew there was more snow in the forecast followed by rain--that spells disaster around our parts! Of course once all the snow was removed from the roof it had to be moved away from the house--fun time--more shoveling. Then on the way home we encountered MORE SNOW...until we got home. The snow around my house is rainy snow (slurpee snow). It's the back breaking heavy snow.

As the holiday season is upon us, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a joyous time--I hope you have a chance to reunite with some friends and family too.

Merry Christmas Alli! I love your cards and although I dont leave many comments, yours is one blog I always check for inspiration. I do have one question today: how large are the recent cards you made using the circle nestability dies, and do you stamp first and then cut/emboss or viceversa? I think the dies would work with my Cuttlebug and I'm considering buying one of the shape sets to try out. Thank you - and happy holidays!

Merry Christmas to you to Ali. I know Victoria/Vancover got snow so I know you had lots of shovelling. We got the blizzard yesterday but its great today. It is great to have a white Christmas so I`m OK with the snow.
Lovely card.
Have a great holiday
Heather
