This card uses my one and only set of My Favorite Things stamps, a scalloped square nestie, and a couple of flower punches. I'm not a big "colorer" but I used Bic Markers on the stamped image. I think it looks pretty good! :)
I love how the cuttlebug folder has the swirls like on the lamb. Too cute!

I made this card for a friend whose mom had passed away. I used sizzix and nesties.
In this picture, you can tell I layered on the inside also and used a stamp of the 23rd Psalm. I had no idea this would be printed in the program at her service.

Seth Sarah is our tye-dye girl. She tye-dyed her gifts this year.
My mom decided she wanted RayBan sunglasses this year. She didn't think she'd get them. Can you tell?
Cool Nana! Sarah and Tess
The Birth of Jesus 1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register.
4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
The Shepherds and the Angels 8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

This is us pretending to be a well-behaved group! This is the REAL us! :) It's hard to see in the picture, but there are "bunny ears" all around!

Ok, it really can not be time for another Not Me! Monday! And, I'm certainly not putting this up a little early.
I really have not procrastinated for how many weeks now and not even started my Christmas decorating! I have not put off putting our tree up because that's a family thing and our son won't be home from college until Tuesday. No, that would not be me! I have not even actually considered doing without decorations this year. No, not me!
I did not write our Christmas letter today for the first time in at least five years. I have certainly not been a slacker for all those years and just enjoyed getting cards from others and not sent one from us. No, I would never do that!
My husband and I did not go to Nacogdoches (a real town in Texas) this weekend for our daughter's boyfriend's graduation from Stephen F. Austin State University. It did not feel like a dress rehearsal for May 16th, 2009 when Sarah will graduate. Also, we did not find ourselves playing pin the tail on the donkey - blindfolds and all - with her and her friends and roommates. No, we are almost 50, and we would not play pin the tail on the donkey with a bunch of 21 year olds! No, not us! My daughter did not win, by the way!
And last but not least, I did not start this blog in July with the intention of sharing some of the cards that I make, and I did not finally post a card on Saturday that I made for Kennon's graduation. No, not me! And, I would not love for you to take a look at it! :)
