Merry Christmas everyone!

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!  Thank you for sharing your Holiday's with me.
I made this using the digital stamp from the Vintage Christmas Digital Stamp Collection (25 stamps) by Gecko Galz.    I printed the stamped image on glossy photo paper and added pearls in different sizes to the Laurel on the little girl then added red Stickles to the Holly Berries on the boy.  If anyone recalls, the journal I made before had the Laurel incorrectly colored in red, but I did not figure that out until it was done, ha ha.  The pretty papers are from Gecko Galz Grandma's House Paper collection. I used my  Perfect Layers Rulers to get the precise layers on my card, see my sidebar for a coupon.  The pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I am entering this into the Gecko Galz Blog Challenge.
I am blessed to have my daughter home from Kentucky for the holidays, so along with my son and husband we will be enjoying our time together.  I will do my best to make some visits but I don't think I will be posting anything until the New Year.  Thank you for following me this year, a special thanks to the friends I have made this year and really become fond of.  I never imagined myself here years ago, but I know I am blessed to know all of my blogging friends, you have all made my life so much richer, and the world so much smaller.  
Thanks for looking, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to all.  ~Diane

  25. I am so impressed already and just found your blog and creations thru Gecko Galz prize announcement. Had to come over to see what else you have done and so glad I did. I'm a new subscriber so will be visiting your blog often. My favorite of what I saw is the little kids smooching for the Christmas card. You are very talented and inspiring.
    Altho I'm not a blogger I subscribe to and read many blogs, never get tired of seeing all the talent and wonderful people out there. Finding blogs (little over a year ago) was one of best days of my life. I'm so inspired by the incredible people.
    Wishing you and yours Happy 2013.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a sweet comment, they really make my day!
