Prayer Card for my son and his wife!

These are prayer cards I made with "My Digital Studios" to pass out to friends and family as a reminder to keep our son and his wife in prayer while he is away in Afghanistan.
The possibilities are endless, I love the software!

I just love My Digital Studio!! Although, I did stamp my actual Christmas cards, I wanted to add
a few pictures, so everyone could see what all of the boys are up to this year! This was a great way to do it, and I was even able to make it match my cards!! Too fun!! I will post my main card I sent out soon as well!!

Tag Box

You might notice I haven't been posting daily! Well family is always first at my house! I am thrilled that all of my kids are coming home for Christmas, and I want to make sure every is perfect before they get here, so I have been very busy around the house, making sure all of the traditions are covered! I do have projects to post, but it won't be everyday! As my son Garrett will be leaving for Afghanistan in January for a year, I want to spend quality time with him (and his amazing wife). Needless to say, I will not be stamping while they are here!! (Not to mention, my oldest son is staying in my stamping room!) So check back often, I do have a lot of fun projects to share!! Thanks for understanding!!

This is a fun tag box, straight from the Stampin' Up! Website! It uses the level 2 hostess set, "Christmas Punch"! You can download the box pattern

Christmas Stocking

I was hanging out up in my stamping room this morning, and have several things I have to be working on, but what to my wandering mind appeared, but this stocking idea! - Nope, not what I need for my must have projects, but who am I to stop my mind in mid stream creativity!
So, I sketched out the stocking freehand, sorry, I don't have a pattern ( if you have a small socking at home, just trace it, I wish I had one!!), and away I went! I punched the holes with a 1/16" punch, and stitched it with a needle & linen thread!

Other Supplies used are...

Spotlight on Christmas Stampset
Merry Moments Designer Series Paper
Real Red & Whisper White Card Stock
Real Red & Garden Green Marker
