Whimsy Advent Event ~ Day 23!!!!!!

ETA:: WINNER.....Dawn Frost said...

I love the raccoons they are adorable! My favorite thing that's happened so far is being able to spend so much time with family this year.

Email me with your info and I'll forward it along to Denise!! Congrats and Happy New year!!!!

Where did this month go????? It seems like just yesterday was Thanksgiving and now we are 2 days away from Christmas!!! I am happy to share with you what I think is my LAST Christmas card of the year!!! I still have some Eskimo Kisses paper left so you never know, but it's the last planned one anyhow!!
I used Whimsy's Winter Raccoons for this one!! That is also the image I AM GIVING AWAY TODAY!!! WOOO HOOO!! I colored these cuties with copics and added some stickles and sponging. The DSP is from a Me and My Big Ideas Fall pack, but I thought it worked well for Christmas. The sentiment is Whimsy too!! I'm going to miss this little sentiment!!! BUt there are 5 others in the set waiting to get inky!
Sooo to win this stamp all you need to do is leave a comment on this post and since we are in the middle of the holiday season, how about sharing the best thing that's happened so far this season. I'll be picking the random winner at some point tomorrow. My hubby and I have our annual Christmas Eve day of fun planned so it will be after that:)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thanks for stoppin' by!



my fav thing that has happened is that my son and his girlfriend will join us for Christmas dinner, this is exciting as family is scattered here and there and this will make the celebration of Christmas more meaningful as my son is a gift!

Oh my gosh, that stamp is ADORABLE!!! I'm a sucker for woodland creatures :) My favorite thing that's happened so far is, finally, after months of searching, finding my daughters #1 wishlist Xmas present (Zhu Zhus)! I can't wait for my 3 kids to rip into everything Xmas morning!
Have a great holiday!


my fav thing that has happened so far is having my one and only baby..he is my life now.

Hi Erin!! What a sweet card! Hmm, the best thing that has happened so far this season...I have 2 things actually:

1: We found the one thing our daughter was looking for after a LOT of searching! She wanted a mic and stand, well, try finding one of those for a 9 yr old! So we ended up finding one at an actual guitar store.

2: We're starting a new tradition this yr with my in-laws and my parents are joining us now as well. We're going to church on Christmas Eve and I'm really looking fwd to it.

Wishing you and yours a very safe and happy Holiday Season!

Your cards is so cute. I love the glitter on the tree and your tree charm.


What a beautiful card! My favorite thing that has happened so far during this holiday season was baking cookies with my Girl Scouts for the Fire Department and then delivering them and then baking cookies and treats with my kids.


eine tolle weihnachtskarte ist das, der stempel ist so süß.
ein schönes weihnachtsfest wünsche ich

lg gila


What a cute image. My favourite thing? Managing to fit in a catch-up lunch with my girlfriends. Since the other days this week have involved being snowed in and getting a tooth removed, I'm especially thankful that I got to spend time with them.

Thanks for playing along.

Hi Erin,
What a fabulous card. I love this image when I first saw it on the blog hop and I still love it now. Nothing extra special has happened this holiday season - but I do finish work tomorrow for a few days so I guess that's nice enough for now.

I love how you have used this adorable stamp! just perfect!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

the neatest thing that has happened to me so far this holiday season is the outpouring of love that I have received from friends. I have been very sick and in and out of the hospital for tests. so many of my cyber friends have reached out in ways I would have never imagined. it has brought me to tears over and over again. I am so abundantly blessed! :)


Your card is very cute. I like the way you colored it and all the embellishments you added. You did a great job.

What a beautiful card you made! The best thing that's happened lately is that the doctor in hospital said that my mom has no cancer in her stomach after a series of tests... don't know what's causing the pain though. For now it's good news.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
