Happy New Year!

Allison & Gwenna with Santa at Broulim's 
Sorry i've been MIA lately but with all the planning for Christmas and then new year plans as well as being sick i haven't made a lot of time for blogging.  We went to Washington state for Christmas and stayed in this amazing house!  I did a video tour once we got there but i'm not done working on it so it's not posted anywhere.  Christmas was great; lots of food, family, games and excitement.  Now that my kids are bigger I realize how exciting Christmas is (or at least remember that it's exciting).  With so many people, opening presents took all day (literally, we had to break for lunch and naps and stuff) but it was fun.  My sister is Expecting a new little baby and we are so excited for her and her little family! :)  we're hoping its a girl since she already has the most adorable boy.  it was really fun to go to the Pacific Science Center, watch The Hobbit in 3D, dye my hair pink, and sign with family.

I made one card to share with all of you and since i've had plenty of Christmas cards I decided to make something for a Girls night or something.  so here is my creation!  I used red scrap card stock and stamps from Stampin Up! the sentiment is from studio G and says, "hello sweet thing".  I colored in the drinks and flotation with colored pencils and added some studio G glitter glue to add a little sparkle.  the green ribbon is from my daughter's birthday party in November.  I just folded and sewed the streamers.  I used the Retro Sketches weekly sketch.
