Simply winter

  How was everyone's Christmas??
We had a very nice mellow day - slept late, the kiddos slept later, late breakfast and open gifts and then an early afternoon turkey dinner with the fixins....It feels good to have both my kiddos in the house again, even for just a couple weeks.
  DS spent the rest of the day between video games and videos and DD was watching a '24' marathon and I was watching with her and working on my newest locker hook rug (its a smaller version of the one in the photo at the bottom- DD requested it :)
    I did take a bit of time in the craft room - trying to get all my stamping and demo boards done for the class I am teaching starting in January....and wound up with another simple card for the current challenge over at Impression Obsession blog -
   I recently got this stamp from IO - called 'Cardinals by window' #F1929 and I stamped it in red onto Neenah desert storm craft colored cardstock, simple layers with some DP and a bit of ribbon and twine and finally topped off with some pearl drops with a bronze viva décor pen - took me all of about 10 minutes :) and its such a pretty stamp for a vintage looking card.
  My DD and I went for a walk and then to the gym, and after some computer time here I am headed back to the craft room - DS is back in his room with the videos games (after I so meanly made him rake some leaves for me) and DD is watching NCIS marathon :) (with her chores yet to do....) DH had to work today...I work the weekend starting tomorrow night....
  The last picture BTW is the rug I finished off a week or so ago for myself - it is 36 by 60 inches...took me about 2 and 1/2 months worth of evening couch time with the DH watching TV.
   Have a great weekend!!!
