Merry Christmas Eve …. a variety post!

Hark the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Wrapping gifts, food preparation,
Pandora Christmas songs, fragrant candles burning… It’s Christmas Eve!


I crocheted this sweater for my granddog, Toby… (Lloyd hates it when I call him that… I think it’s funny)anyhoo, Toby loves his sweaters in the Winter! I found this yarn at GW Boutique the other day and had to make him one. The pictures aren’t real focused because it’s hard to get him to be “still” when he’s here! He and Bandit have to race around and have their playtime!

And this is a sneak peek at some new stamps and a die from Our Daily Bread designs! Quite a change from doing all my Christmas cards! lol

F4A44 All Things Beautiful

This is Butterfly Corner, Faith, and Butterfly with matching die!

It’s colored with Copics, the verse is sponged while in the Spellbinders Labels 10 with Distress Milled Lavender. The butterfly also has Pearl Glimmer Mist.

This is a neat tool to use when heat embossing or spritzing the Glimmer Mist!
It is actually from my chalks…

The card was done for several challenges on Splitcoast….one we had to “pop” up something and the other we had a “list” to go by…

  • Patterned Paper
  • A Brad
  • At least one punch
  • Ribbon


So, Spellbinders just had this post on making tags and I thought WHY NOT!


With the Grand Calibur it’s a snap!

ChristmasTags embossed

ChristmasTags names

Dies used Labels 1, 4, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, 17, Beaded Ovals, Heirloom Ornament





Goodness! I started this post early this morning, then we lost internet access! ACK!! It was a widespread outage… finally, they fixed whatever they needed to fix and I’m back in business… nine hours later!

Have a happy Christmas Eve
and a blessed Christmas!!

Thanks for stopping!
