Hope Santa was good to you all. I was spoiled. I will share later, but for now I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy and safe New Year. We are heading out to my BIL and SIL's tonight for some fondue, movies and games. Should be fun.
I don't have any new creations for you. We have been spending all our freetime playing with the new Wii. And I have been revamping my stampin' room...which will take awhile to get it back into some form of order! I am hoping to do some stamping later on this week. I am excited to say that I ordered so Nestabilities Dies today!! Nancy had told me about http://www.ucutathome.com/index.php and I decided to check them out. They have a VIP 40% monthly coupon!! How cool is that? I just happened to get some Christmas money, so...I ordered the full Circle set and the Large Scalloped Oval and Classic Small Oval sets. Now I just have to wait!! I will let you all know what the service was like after I receive them.

I just love this sketch from SCS. I will definitely be using this sketch again...although I did move the bottom panel. I love this new SU set. This one is a new Level 3 set in the upcoming 2008 catalogue. I also used an old technique that I love...Dazzling Diamonds. And added more bling and sparkle. Trust me when I say this one is very sparklin'!!
I also wanted to share a few more RAK's that I have received. This first one is from my friend Catherine. I saw this stamp set on her blog one day and HAD to know where she got it. I am a HUGH Tazo Chai lover, so duh!! Well a few weeks ago she sent me an email saying that her LSS had this set again and she picked one up for me...Merry Christmas. And I so love the card too. I saw this one on her blog and thought it was so cute!! Thanks again, Catherine! and hope your little one is doing better!!!
This next one is from one of my fellow Cal-Gals...Shannon. This is a card that Shannon made at our last gathering and I loved it. Trust me it is even more amazing in person! Thanks, Shannon!
And finally this last one is from my friend, Robyn. I think, this maybe one of the first cards that she has actually given me...that she has made. And she will probably freak once she finds out I put her card up here, but...too bad!! It is awesome!! Thanks, Robyn. :0)
Well...that's it for now. This will most likely be my last post until late next week. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a fun and safe New Years. :0)

I also wanted to share the great RAK we all received from Nancy on the weekend too. Isn't this bag cute! She included a cute Snowman ornament and a couple of acrylic Michaels stampsets...which I don't happen to already have! Thanks again, Nancy!
I also wanted to share a late entry for last months Challenge. Unfortunately, it was too late for the candy, but I still wanted to share it with you all. This one comes from Bobbie...please check out her blog for all the details. Thanks again Bobbie for playin' along.
Well, only 5 more cards to make and I am done!! All the rest went postal yesterday. So be on the lookout...you may get one in the mail very soon. ;0)

And finally this last one is from the one and only...Allison. This is such a cute card...and my girls really like it too! Thanks, Allison. :0)I got to spend Saturday night stampin' with Nancy, Shannon and Allison. We had lots of fun...or at least I did! ;0) Allison brought some of her TCP stamps. All I can say is...guess what stamps I will be buying now after Christmas!!! This ones for you Allison...thanks again! I had lots of fun with these last night. I actually made up about 5 cards in a few hours...I think that might be a record for me! I also got to use my Verve Visual stamps that I won from Toni! I am lovin' this card!

Maria also had another challenge to photograph your stamping space as it is now. And tell what one item is your comfort or calming item. I would have to say that a permanent fixture would be my music and my normal item which is usually with me is my cup of Tazo Chai...not in this pic. ;0)
Okay...an update on the family. Took DD #2 to the dr today and turns out she has Bronchitis on top of the flu...poor thing. Got some really strong cough meds for her, so hopefully she will be feeling better soon. She actually wanted some crackers when we got home and ate 3! That's the most solid food she has had in 3 days! Daddy on the other hand? Still sick!!
DD #2 came down with the flu this weekend!! So she is home today. Then hubby came home from hockey lastnight...yup, you guessed it! He was up all night and now he is home today. Please pray for me that I don't get it...although my tummy has that funny feeling this morning!! NO!!!!Will this ever end???

I have yet to use any buttons. These are some buttons that I received from my friend Dottie as a BRAK too. Yes...that would be the Dottie with no blog yet!!!! Thanks for getting me to finally use buttons Dottie. I will be using more now!
Looks like another cold one here in Calgary today. I had to go out and buy a new winter coat since mine kicked it the other day! I wanted a new one this year anyway, but I was hope to wait until after Christmas...oh well. I bought a nice brown wool peacoat style. I actually kinda feel like a grown up ;0) Have a great Friday!!

Well...I am exhausted. Back later with some more Bellas...
Well, DD is home yet again today. I took her back to the dr yesterday and they are gonna send her for a ultrasound to make sure that her appendix is okay. They tried to book us in for an URGENT ultrasound, but of course in this city...well our appointment is for next Wednesday!! In the meantime if it gets worse we are to take her to the Childrens Hospital. I am thinkin' that I might anyway. She has been home for 3 days now...we keep thinkin' that it isn't that bad, but everytime she is up for more than 5-10 mins she wants to lay down again. We tried to get her up for school today, but she won't eat and starts crying again. Not sure what else to do. See how she is this morning. I might venture over to the Children's Hospital with her later on today. She is not worse, but not better either. Just not sure what to do...ya know?
Lastnight I had planned on doing up some Christmas cards, but right after we put the girls down for bed our little one got sick! She's okay...just needed to clear out the chest a little. But we just can't seem to win around here! Sorry for venting. ;0)

Thank you again, Kathy!!
I also thought I would share another Presentabella card I made. My DD was invited to yet another bday party, so mommy had to create! ;0)
I am starting to panic a bit...regarding my Christmas cards. I am still only about 12 into about 50 or so that I need to make!! And I have not started any Christmas shopping yet. I really need to have some healthy kids in this house!! Everyone...please send me some healthy vibes ;0)
