BowHolly_2
This gorgeous and sweet card is by Chari. She used the mistletoe from Bows and Holly and combined it with a sweet custom sentiment using Sally's ABCs and Smitty's ABCs. Her swirly border is from Sew Lovely and the hearts are from My Silly Valentine. This card just makes me smile! It is a great holiday card idea for the love of your life! :)

MakingFrostyFriends-LeaLawson
How gorgeous is this card by Lea? I absolutely adore how she took the sentiment from Making Frosty Friends and created a vintage layered card. Lea shows that this set can go from cute to shabby perfectly!

Tiff'sBowsHolly
Tiffany's box and card set is so cute and clever! This is just perfect for giving someone the perfect little gift! I love how they coordinate! All of the images from Bows and Holly are just perfect for this set. I love the custom patterned paper with the bow! Adorable!

LF_Nov11_Snow_Friends_teri
Teri's card is so adorable! How sweet are those rosy cheeks on the Making Frosty Friends snowmen? This card idea is just perfect for celebrating your closest friends during the holidays. I also love the Teeny Tiny Backdrops background. It goes perfectly with the sentiment!

BowHolly_1
Chari's card is so sweet! I adore the Bows and Holly wreath as the "O" in joy. So clever! The Teeny Tiny Backdrops stars are just perfect for the holidays and the side bow makes this card look like a perfectly wrapped present!

  1. Thanks for fabulous inspiration! WONDERFUL cards. One of my favorite holiday memories is from three years ago, when we surprised my sister and her family - who had had to stay home because they had the flu, by being their second Santa for the evening delivering more presents. The children still talk about the Christmas when they had TWO Santas as their best (-:.

  2. My favorite holiday memory... I can't come up with a spesific one right now, but it's always special hanging the up my lighted star in the window early every December. It's a moment when I really feel the Christmas Spirit! Oh, and I think I remember loving the Christmas Eve's when I was younger, singing in a choir in the church every year. Those beautiful Christmas songs we sang then are still some of my favorites =)

  3. These are all so gorgeous!! The video is adorable as always Kelly Marie!!
    My favourite memory is lying under the Christmas tree staring up through all the lights and twinkling and just soaking in the magic :)

  4. Loving the DT's projects and your snow-family card is just gorgeous :) I love watching your videos - always such a happy experience.

    My favourite holiday memory was the year I had to dress up as Santa. I was a teenager at the time and the idea was to fool my youngest brother (9 years younger than me) in still believing in Santa. Needless to say he figured it out almost instantly - smart little bugger. We played dumb off course.

    Years later (when he was a teen) he casually asked me one day if it really was me playing Santa that one year. I decided to come clean and put him out of his misery :)

  5. What great DT projects!

    my favorite holiday memory is a few years ago, when my 2 oldest children were just old enough to be wide-eyed and giddy over everything christmas. It was magical :)

  6. Oh, love the cards, especially the mistletoe card, fantastic!. My favourite holiday memory would be the first Christmas with our son...it was so special having him with us!

  7. My favorite holiday memory was when my husband's unit came home early from Afghanistan just in time for Christmas. My husband hates putting up the Christmas tree because I'm such a crazed woman about it being perfectly straight. So my friend Rachel and I went and cut down a tree, set it up (straight), and decorated it. It was a little thing compared to him being home safe, but he was beyond delighted to sit by the pretty tree that he didn't have to do anything to. He didn't mind the new grill I bought him either. ;)

  8. lovely cards!!

    My favorite holiday memories are of those years we celebrated with my aunt, uncle & cousins... kids all together, much fun & chaos, good food, and then the day after xmas was an all-day shopping spree and chinese good for dinner.

  9. Can't really think of one. But one Christmas it was really, really cold and I liked it. So cold that it pinches your cheeks, but I like the crisp air.

  10. My favorite holiday memory is when my now husband came home from Iraq a week before Christmas and proposed. I will never forget that moment and how happy & truly blessed I was.

  11. That card is just so beautiful! You always make it look so easy!!
    My favorite memory is when we would get up so early and my mother would always be up waiting for us with as much excitement as we had. I don't think she ever slept on Christmas eve!! She ALWAYS made it so special for us. We lost her 2 years ago and I have such wonderful memories to make me smile! I truly hope I am making great memories for my son!!
    Thanks for chance!

  14. Such cute stamps!
    My favorite memory is a recurring one: I love decorating the tree! When I was a kid, we turned on whatever Christmas specials we could find in those pre-VCR days...these days, I just pop in a DVD and decorate away!

  15. The cards from DT are just gorgeous.

    My favorite memory was a couple years ago when we had an early Christmas gathering with my grandma, aunties, uncles and cousins. It was a bbq followed by games and present exchange. One of the rare occasions where everyone of us were gathered together.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Gorgeous cards! My favorite holiday memory is going out after church, but before bed on Christmas Eve and driving around to all the different neighborhoods to look at Christmas lights.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favorite holiday memory is the year I "helped" Santa and called my goddaughter (we call her Lana, but her actual name is Alana and I believe she was 4 that year) to ask her how she liked her new bike helmet that Santa personalized for her...
    She said she loved it, except that Santa put an L on her hat and her name started with an A so she guessed Santa couldn't spell, but she forgave him. I asked didn't she think he used the L because people called her Lana rather than Alana...she didn't think so LOL!

  20. What great cards form the DT. That mistletoe card is too sweet and probably just sold Sew Lovely to me. I like how you share the thought process in Lawn Clippings. My fave holiday memory is from 20 years ago when we moved here. We could only find a tiny duplex to rent and there was only room in the eat in kitchen for any shred of tree. We had one of those faux trees in which you inserted every limb according to a chart. So we put one side of it together and tied it to the curtain rod to hold it up. It was beautiful. The pic of our three sons all under 5 years old sitting lined up in front of the fridge with their stockings is precious. Oooh--you just gave me a great altered book idea!

  21. Spending Christmas with my family every year. You can't beat that! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. My favorite holiday memory is spending the night with my nieces/nephew on Christmas eve and being able to see their faces light up when they opened presents on Christmas morning!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love every holiday where my two adult kids are both home! It could be Labor Day, Christmas or Memorial day! It is so tough now that they are older!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the mistletoe card! My favorite memory is my son's first Christmas. We plopped him amongst the presents under the tree Christmas morning where he stared and stared at all the lights. It was so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My favorite holiday memory is making Christmas cookies with my mother in law a few weeks before Christmas! It's so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  26. One of my favorite holiday memories is when I spent the holidays at my aunt's house in Texas with the entire family. I love a big family Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  27. What fabulous cards! Wow! My most favorite holiday memory happened almost eight years ago when I brought my day old newborn home to open gifts on Christmas evening. He was the best and always will be the best Christmas present ever.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I always enjoy and get so much inspiration from you ladies. My favorite Christmas memories are every Christmas I've had since my children were born, they've all been very special.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wonderful cards and box!
    One of my favourite memories is going to my parents' house with the whole family and having dinner and singing Christmas carols.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks for all of the holiday inspiration. One of my favorite holiday memories is a recent one. We surprised our daughter-in-law with a special gift which moved her to tears, which of course moved me to tears. Giving is always so much better than receiving.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What fabulous creativity on these card creations!

    My favorite holiday memory was the year my siblings and I woke up to see sleigh tracks and hoof marks in the snow in our front yard where santa had parked his reindeer. Years later we would learn that my dad had created this wonderous scene for us kids. Oh the magic of christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  32. My favorte holiday memory was when I was little, growing up in a small Alaskan town. My parents brought my brother and me to a holiday get together with other family friends and their children. Soon, we heard Santa arrive, but not because of the clatter of 8 reindeer, but because Santa arrived on a snowmobile! We watched Santa come in, and he greeted us and passed out presents to all the kids! He gave a hearty Ho Ho Ho and disappeared into the night, and we watched him drive away on his snowmobile. It was truly magical!

    Love all these cards from the DT, and of course the snowfamily in the frame. Wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I LOVE these cards!!! I am eager to create now. Thank you for posting such inspiring ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love your card....and all the patterned paper you used!

    My favorite holiday memory is when my son was younger and we would hide his "main" gift and leave him notes with clues on it and send him all over the house to look for it! When we finally stopped doing it when he was in his mid teens he was so disappointed and asked us not to stop that tradition! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. oh wow, the cards are awesome! I feel like getting stampy!

    My favorite holiday memory is when I was little, I got the baby doll that I wanted so badly, the Baby This And That, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Christmas when I was 16 - I knew I was getting the Tiffany bracelet and necklace I wanted so badly. I couldn't sleep all night!!

  37. Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration.
    I will never forget when I was a little girl getting a Betsy Wetsy doll. I was over the moon!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great cards! I love the mistletoe one, and the one from the video/Cards that Care. One of my favorite holiday memories was the year my brother and I were downstairs at 4 in the morning shaking presents (our annual ritual since we weren't allowed to wake anyone else up at that point, but could go down and ogle the tree/gifts), and we flipped over this giant box for me only to discover that my mom hadn't bothered to wrap the bottom of the box....it was a dollhouse kit!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Absolutely adorable! Makes me want to be creative after a very long slump! Thanks Lawn Fawn!

    LOVE these card ideas... Fantastic inspiration!!

    My favorite holiday memory is of my dad clearing out the living room to make way for "the table". Any furniture that could be removed was put in a my parents bedroom (there was furniture stacked to the ceiling!!

    The "table" was actually two large boardroom tables put end to end, with one huge piece of plywood over the top of both. My mom would then cover it with a huge handmade tablecloth.

    There were atleast 20 guests each year.... but to a little kid it seemed like the entire world was there!

    Come to think of it, I'm gonna have to pull some pics and do a scrapbook page about this :D

    Thanks again

  49. I love the design team's projects! I would have to say that each holiday I spend with my family is a favorite memory. Time is precious and the holidays are a great time to spend with family. If I had to pick just one memory though, I'd have to go with when my husband and I spent New Years in Vail, Co. It was beautiful and romantic. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Awesome design team cards. Love them all! Thanks for the video. I always love watching your videos. My favorite holiday memory would be from when I was a kid, Christmas Eve was pretty much the only time my brother and I didn't fight about something. We would go to bed super early and we would sleep on the floor with our heads out the door or bedrooms so we could talk to each other and then wake each other up in the morning to open presents.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Some wonderful inspiration today by your awesome design team! I am blessed to have many wonderful holiday memories so just one quick one would be; the first Christmas when we had a son-in-law after raising 2 daughters. It was so fun to shop for young man presents and it was really fun watching him open his gifts.

    ReplyDelete
  52. SO cute!! My favorite Holiday Memory? I have alot of them that are special for different reasons but when we lived in Mass. we would spend Christmas Eve at our friends house and I looked forward to it every year and miss that event and our friends so much now that we are stationed in Louisiana.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love all the cards…and always enjoy your videos!

    Until our son was 16 we always had a live tree for Christmas. We would bring our tree home and cut off the end of the trunk so it could get water. We would then decorate the little circle of tree trunk, add the date, drill a small hole in it, and hang it on the tree. Those are some of my most favorite holiday memories, and also some of my favorite decorations.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Those cards are gorgeous and super cute!

    I remember when I was little, we lived in an apartment so we didn't have a tree! So on Christmas day, I found a bag full of toys at our door! I was so excited!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. My favorite memory was the "guess who" present under the tree. There was always a mystery gift with no name and it drove us kids nuts wondering who it would be for...we weren't smart enough to realize she rotated it every year lol.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks for the Holiday inspiration. I love the versatility of these stamp sets. The snowmen in the frame is such an ADORABLE idea. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. The cards today are so fun! Really put me in the spirit.

    My memory is of Christmas morning growing up. My parents really made it special. When we went to bed on Christmas Eve, there was no tree, no decorations, but when we got up on Christmas morning, they had done everything in 1 night - always a freshly cut tree with the wonderful pine smell, and underneath it all those presents! My Mom said that she was often just getting to bed about the time we were awakening!

  58. One of my favorite memories is getting to open 1 gift on Christmas Eve---a tradtion that I have carried over to my son

    ReplyDelete
  59. Awesome cards by the design team! I also love the card you made for the
    card drive--so brightly colored and
    cheerful. My favorite holiday memories involve sharing Thanksgiving
    with my family.

  60. My fave holiday memory is playing bingo with the family (around 40 of us) and everyone trying to win a bottle of ketchup! We all were crazy for it - it was so funny.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I loved it one year when the boys came downstairs Christmas morning and found the cookies were gone and the stocking were filled. They were ELATED! (:

    ReplyDelete
  62. Very cute card. I'm going to have to use that frame idea.

    My favorite holiday memories are the times we spend with my in-laws. There is always a lot of people, lots of love and plenty of food and good times.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Waking up Christmas morning and opening the big doors to our living room to find all of our presents from Santa!

    ReplyDelete
  64. WOW! Amazing job DT!!!! You rock my socks off this Monday morning! I love each & every one, but Chari is blowing me away here!!! I'm totally inspired & can't wait to dig into Bows & Holly when I get home tonight (picked it up a few wks back, but haven't played yet).

    My fave Christmas memory was last year. Our son was 5 & daughter was 2 and it was just magical to see the wonder of Christmas morning through their eyes. Our amazingly blessed family of 4. Complete and sharing a Christmas in our home. The pure bliss that my hubs & I felt was amazing. It's like we waited our whole lives for moments like that.

    Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Amazing projects all! My favorite memories are from when I was a kid- my parents would have a holiday open-house and my friends would come with their parents. I had my own mini-party in my room with my own full-sized, decorated tree (that's a story of its own!) We'd raid the munchies downstairs and then go to my room to open gifts to each other and generally talk without our parents around. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. My favorite holiday memory(s) was the first Christmas that each of my children became 'aware' of Christmas and all the trees & lights... The look of magic and awe on their sweet little faces was the most wonderful thing...

    ReplyDelete
  67. Gorgeous cards! Love them all! My favorite memory is of our family Christmas parties when I was a kid. My Uncle Lenny would go "take a nap" and soon after Santa Claus would show up and he and my Grandma would hand out gifts to everyone. Funny how Santa looked remarkably like my Uncle! LOL! Thanks for the chance to win!

  68. my fave is present time of course ;) we only had a 1 or 2 to open but they were always the best!

  69. When I was little, the Christmas tree fell over on my mom. All you could see were her pink slippers poking out but everyone was laughing too hard to help her!

  71. My fav holiday was last year with my daughter's first Diwali (Indian festival of lights)with her grandpa when she was beaming with joy having fun with the colorful sparklers !:)

    ReplyDelete
  72. We live down the street from an amusement park. A couple of years ago a family who had lost their father earlier that year decided to spend Christmas at the park. We met them in line for a ride and ended up spending the evening with this amazing family. Two day's later on Christmas Eve the oldest daughter got sick, they called us for help. We dropped what we were doing, drove over with home made chicken soup and a few other things. We talked them into letting us bring them breakfast for Christmas morning. It was a very special few days of serving a wonderful family though such a difficult time. I will never forget it. Through social media were still friends :D

    ReplyDelete
  73. Beautiful cards! So bright and happy :) My fav holiday memory would have to be when I was 6 and I had begged and begged for Barbie's Camper (you know, that big pink camper with a bed, shower, kitchen, etc)...Oh how I wanted that camper! When I looked under the tree, I saw no box large enough for my camper. I stiffened my upper lip, and tried to be cheery. About 15 minutes later, my brother came through the door pushing my camper! With a new Barbie in it, too!! Oh, that much joy was hard to contain...even now it brings a smile to my face :)

  74. Favorite holiday memory was when I has asked Santa for a Sony Walkman and I got it! I was so impressed! (That is not showing my age is it?) LOL

    ReplyDelete
  75. Lovely cards!! I think my favorite part of the holidays is just getting into the holiday spirit: playing Christmas music while wrapping presents or making cookies!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I don't know if I could come up with a specific memory, but the excitement my girls get when they get on their warmest pj's and grab a blanket to get in the car to go get hot chocolate at starbucks and then drive around to look at holiday lights is something I look forward to every year :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. These cards are so gorgeous and inspiring! It's hard to pick just one memory as a favorite...I think I'll pick going to my grandparent's house when I was little. They always had the prettiest tree, with lots of old ornaments, and I got to see my cousins and eat a delicious Christmas dinner. I'm getting a little hungry thinking about it! =P

    ReplyDelete
  78. Great cards! I have the entire Lawn Fawn Collection on my wish list for Santa!

  79. The Christmas I asked for a baseball mit and a drum set..and I got polly pockets and barbies.

  80. Favorite Holiday memory has got to be last year when my youngest son (8yr.old) FINALLY got a Nerf gun. (I have a thing about the boys & them having "weapons" to go nuts in the house) BUT last year I broke down although it wasn't me who brought it but Santa. The face on that boy when he opened it his gift, was BEYOND priceless, (Hubby & I got teary eyed as we saw what was happening) Our son lost his breathe for a few minutes and started to cry happy tears and starting running around the living room screaming YES,YES FINALLY... Hmm Wonder HOW the HECK is Santa gonna top that this year? :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. All of these inspirations are ADORABLE! I love them all. :) My favorite holiday memory is the first big family get together at Grandma's house for Christmas after not seeing the family in quite a while... Reunions are so fun during the holidays. I love my family!

  84. I LOVE all the cute and pretty cards, they are really inspirational for me. :) My fondest memory of Christmas is when I was about 6, I was a skinny kid and always cold. I got slippers and a housecoat for Christmas, and I wore those slippers TO BED!

  88. So much lovely inspiration!

    My favorite Christmas memory is walking through my grandparents neighborhood on Christmas Eve with my cousins and uncles, looking at the lights, singing carols, and usually spotting Rudolph's red light (airplane) high in the sky. Then we'd get back to the house to discover that we'd just missed Santa. We've always opened presents on Christmas Eve night, and I love it that way!

    ReplyDelete
  89. WONDERFUL cards. My favorite holiday memories are always spending time with friends and family!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Love those cards! You know, I don't often think back to previous holidays, because not all of my Christmases were great. However, there is one in particular that sticks out. My brother had married his first wife and moved out of state. A few years later, they were divorced, but he stayed where he was. One year, he called me a few days before Christmas to say he was coming for a visit, but not to tell our parents. He showed up at about 2 am on Xmas eve, and bedded down in a sleeping bag under the Christmas tree. Imagine my folks' surprise when they woke up xmas morning & there he was, with a big red bow! I still get choked up about it!!

  91. I love these stamps, actually I am crazy for all your stamps! Thank you for the chance to win. My favorite memory of the holiday season is of helping my Grammy T. make pies and treats to share with all of our friends and family. To this day, there is nothing like Grammy's flitch candy.

  94. I got lots of favorite holiday memory. One of my favorite holiday was Christmas 2005. It was the first time after many years when me and my siblings and parents were complete. My brother lives in the Philippines so we don't see him much. He comes and visit here every few years. So it's always nice whenever he comes here to visit. Hopefully on his next visit he'll be here with his family (I haven't met my nieces yet).

  99. One of my favorite memories is rocking my infant son in front of the Christmas tree late at night crying with joy and feeling so blessed to be his mommy...30 years ago! Oh, I'm still blessed to be his mom AND Grandma to his two children!!

  102. My favorite holiday memory is having snow on Thanksgiving after moving to the upper midwest from the southeast. We never had white Christmases, much less a white turkey day!

  105. It's hard for me to think of one Specific Christmas that is my Favorite. I do miss the Times at my Grandparents Homes. The House filled with Family, Wonderful Food, The Christmas Trees with Presents, The Fire going in the Fireplace, Christmas Music going on the record player. Sure wish I could go back. But now I am making wonderful Memories with my little Grand Children. Love all of your Wonderful Christmas Cards! :0)

  109. My favourite holiday memory was the tradition of mum and dad putting something sporty or that could be used outside in our stockings so that when we got up super early we had something to do. I miss this as my brother now lives 10 hours away! :) But gorgeous set!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Fab inspiration, I need to get those sets inky again!

    My favourite memory is when my then five year old daughter came downstairs after Santa had visited and said, 'Ooh Mummy, didn't he leave a mess! He could have hoovered up after himself, look at all that glitter'!

  111. I just love those snowmen! My favorite memory is from when I was 3 years old, my dad and I made a 'snow kitty' because there wasn't enough snow for a whole snowman. It turned out pretty cute, I must say :)

  115. I can't think of a favorite specific holiday memory, but my favorite holiday tradition with my family was always when we put the snowman on top of the tree. We didn't have a star- it was a cute cotton snowman, and he looked adorable up there on the tree! To this day, my parents still use the same snowman, although he is now grungy and old....but I don't care! It's my favorite Christmas decoration

  116. My favourite Christmas memories are Christmas Eve with lots of snow and gingerbread cookie smell. I love that time :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. What great cards! I love the one with 3 snowmen! My favourite holiday memory was when my parents tricked me by putting a voucher to get my ears pierced inside a HUGE box and I cried of happiness :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. My favorite Christmas memory is the year we lost power just after supper finished cooking. We got to eat by candlelight and spent the rest of the evening as a family, telling stories and playing cards.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Love the DT's inspirational samples :) My favorite holiday memories are from my childhood in Russia. Grandpa Frost is our name for Santa and he has a companion with him on most occasions (Snow Maiden, his Granddaughter)... I used to play her in a children's theatre studio and loved the happy lil' faces around enjoying our shows :)

  120. Great creations from the DT!
    My favorite memory is my sister and I sneaking to the Christmas tree and peeling off tape to find out what type of Cabbage Patch doll we received. It is the one memory that sticks in my head from Christmas mornings as a child.

    ReplyDelete
  121. fave holiday memory was being a kid and getting a parakeet from Santa Claus- who I was promptly afraid of as soon as I saw it...lol!

    ReplyDelete
  122. wonderful creations, love them all. beautifully layered, and the additional ribbons and twines were great. thank you for sharing. One of my favorite holiday memories is our first Christmas after we were married. The big tree in the front room, stockings hung on a real fireplace, and the house filled with music and dinner cooking.

  124. Yeay! Another give away! Favorite memory...it had to be the last Christmas we spent in HI. I flew my parents and siblings to HI and it was the first time in a long time we spent the holidays w/my family! It was a nice change for us since we've been moving around a lot due to the military to finally be able to fly family into town and spend it with them!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Great inspiration! As for holiday memory favorites, I always love putting up the Christmas tree. For the past 19 years, I have been making little clay ornaments. As my husband and I unwrap them and hang them, we reminisce about the past 19 years together and the memories we've made together. Can't wait to get it out this year, except I'm worried about the 7 month kitten who loves to play with everything!

  126. My favorite memories from Christmas are from my grandparents house...every Christmas eve, with all the aunts, uncles & cousins (every year until I was 39).

    ReplyDelete
  127. My favorite holiday memories are those when my aunts, uncles, and cousins would all gather at my grandmother's house for Christmas. The excitement of all us kids was amazing. We would try so hard to go to sleep, but would spend hours up late playing around and talking.

    ReplyDelete
  128. One of my favourite memories is when we were kids, going to my grandparents house Christmas morning and all the family and neighbours (even the ones who had moved away) would call in to say Hi!

  130. Amazing DT samples and video :)
    One of my favorite memories is the year "Santa" brought a big and beautiful cardboard house for my sister and me. It has a door, a window and even a weathercock. My father mounted it and we played with it all Christmas day (and lots of days after that, lol)

    ReplyDelete
  131. I have many childhood memories of Christmas at my grandparents in KY and my parents would take my "santa" stuff to set out all the way from AL.

  133. Great cards! My favorite memory of Christmas is when I was a kid living in Brazil. My dad would get the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve and we (the kids) would decorate it while my mom and dad cooked a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  134. All of these cards are wonderful!! My favorite memory is when my two year old saw all of his presents from Santa and his eyes were as big as saucers!!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I have a serious addiction to snowmen so would love this set! One of my favorite holiday memories is when my daughter, now 19, was about 2 and we got an ornament for the tree called Bradley the Bubble-Blowing Bear. You put bubble solution in Bradley and he actually puffs outs spheres...well, she loved that thing when she was little and would comment every time Bradley blew a bubble. Amazingly, it still works - she doesn't comment anymore, but I still put it on the tree every year.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Gorgeous cards!! I am so behind in my Christmas cards, I say this every year though ;) My fave memory would be last Christmas, when our family was able to be together with my dad. I think it's probably our last one with my dad in his old self. His memory is fading so fast. However, I'm looking forward to this year's too. Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  137. One of my favorite memopries was the first time my DH & I went up in the mountains of Western Montana to cut our tree. It was so beautiful with tons of snow and so many trees!! We had so much fun! That's what I love about these stamp sets....So much FUN!!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. My favorite memory is going to my Grandmother's house Christmas eve. My whole family gathered there, and we laughed, opened presents, ate the same yummy things each year, and came home late. I still remember how it felt to be almost asleep, and loaded into a cold wintery car for the ride home! And after 12 years of Grandma being gone, I still miss Christmas at her house!

    ReplyDelete
  143. When I was little, we would go to town the day after Thanksgiving to see Santa come in on the back of a firetruck. Even though I was too scared to talk to him, I remember being so excited to see him.

  146. Wow! So much cool ideas and fun inspiration, thank you! :)
    One of my fave memories is making liver sausages and meat sausages with my grandma. We'd spend the entire day in her 'summer kitchen' (a small hut in the yard), grinding meat, stuffing sausages and boiling them on the sizzling hot cast iron stove. Haha, I realise now I must sound a hundred years old!! :D

    Oh I miss those yummy sausages!! ...and my grandma. :)

  147. Such cuteness - love the cards!

  164. My favorite Christmas memory is of Christmas on my grandparents farm in Iowa. We would be all snug in their farm house in the evening and play in all that crisp snow with cousins, Aunts and Uncles during the day. My grandpa would even pull a sled behind his tractor and we would all love going for a ride! Plus all those cookies my grandma made!

  166. My favorite holiday memories are from when I was a kid and it seemed like we spent the whole week of Christmas/New Year's over at my grandparents house.

I always get that nostalgic feeling when I think back on it

    .need all the help I can get this year.

    One of my favorite memories was a few years ago when my kids were little. We woke up to the sound of their soft voices coming from the family room. The, then, three of them were laying on the floor discussing what goodies they could see peeking out the tops of their stockings and trying to guess what was hidden from sight. It was then decided they'd waited long enough and came to wake us up.

  186. My favourite holiday memory is when my youngest was 6.. hubby and I had teased her for months that all she was getting for Christmas was garbage.... so you can only imagine her upset Christmas Day when all of her gifts were in garbage bags!!!! She even dragged them to the garbage can for disposal. We tried not to be too alarmed over this, and finally showed all her gifts, just put in three big garbage bags. She was happy with the gifts, but still hasn't forgotten that stunt we pulled... we laugh about it, now that she's out of the house :)

  198. One of my favorite memories is that 2 years ago, my boyfriend surprised me and booked a harbor-view hotel room on the Chinese New Year. I really like fireworks but I don't always go to see the fireworks because it's usually very crowded. So I really enjoyed watching it, comfortably at a hotel room, away from the crowded. =)
