Merry Christmas To ALL!

I hope and pray that this Christmas season was a blessing of good health, family, love and joy! I had my daughters home and we had some wonderful family time! Sadly, Heather had to work some of the time. Apparently our 911 dispatchers have to work 24/7/365...imagine that! What a gift they are to us, as well as our emergency and health care people, police, fire fighters and our military.

Here are the cards I've received from such gifted friends!! I get so excited receiving homemade cards!

The first one is from Terri Winske! It's really shimmery and pretty. I love the "Believe". 


Here's a cutie card from Sue Chaney!! As always, I love the adorable images she uses. Sue colors so softly and the glittery touches really made it pretty! She embellishes so nicely!



And, yes, it IS a Vada Schutz tag! How I love her vintage looks. Beautiful detailing and colors!!



 Linda Clark made a very cute Christmas card and I recognize The Angel Company stamps.  



This gorgeous card was from Nancy Klessig!! The colors and details are amazing!



The true meaning of Christmas was displayed so lovely in this card from Penny Yoder! Great coloring and the "star" was a perfect touch for this card!! AMEN!



Yep, this is such a GREAT card! I love the punched out windows for the little snowmen faces. Snowflake is beautiful and the faces inside look so stinkin' cute too!



This sparkly WOWser is from Judy Meyers. The holographic background paper is awesome!



Last, and certainly not least, is this Reason for the Season card from Gerri Morgan! The gold shimmer paper and glitter embossed image make this look so rich!!


Thank you ALL for helping make my Christmas so special!!
Merry Christmas from the Tiedtkes!!
