Back from the Beyond

Hopefully my computer will let me upload some of the cards I've been doing. The card today is one of my Christmas cards. The idea was taken from a card in Cards Magazine. I really hope you enjoy it, as some lucky person is getting it from my Christmas card list.
This card is done on a white card base. The layering is Navy Blue card stock, then white embossed with Christmas tree bulbs. The bows are done in silver ribbon. The bars are Navy cardstock covered in white, I pierced the white, then added Silver snowflake brads and a Silver ball with a silver brad. The Merry Christmas is a clear sticker. I love how this card turned out. The inside says, "Merry Christmas", with a stamped Snowflake.
Christmas is always a Happy time for family and friends. On Friday our afterschool program will have our first awards day for the kids. Each child that has been in class 30 days will receive a gift bag and certificate. I can't believe there are 41 children getting this. Some only missed it by a day. For those not getting the bag, they'll get a bag with a slap band and candy cane. For some reason the kids love these slap bands. I must say they come in very bright colors. I've had a great time doing up the bags. I'll have a party at my house for all the teachers the Wed. after Christmas, as I know how busy they are with family things when we finish getting ready for their own Christmas's. We'll get started on the New Year early. I can't tell you what a wonderful crew I have. These ladies go way beyond what is needed to make sure the kids all enjoy what they are learning. I'm very thankful for that, it makes my job so much easier.
Until next time, thanks for stopping by. I'll try and keep you updated on all the happenings in my life, some good and some not so good.
