Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #15 - A gift for YOU!

A lucky challenge winner will win these adorable La-La Land Crafts stamps!

“After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11

Well, I took this challenge literally and decided to present one of my favorite holiday treats inside the card.

Leave me a comment and you will get a chance to win this card, along with a surprise treat all wrapped up for Christmas!

I am not sure what happened with the colors! The green in these pictures are not this faded. I will try to take new pictures in better light and see if I can get better colors on there for you!

Santa, Build A Bear, and HUGE birthday giveaways from Lisa

I have been so sick this weekend... I don't know how those of you who have chronic sinusitis manage! I have been miserable!! It's worse than a migraine. At least with a migraine, I know there's an end and I can find some sort of relief with my migraine medication. But this sinus infection is has got my number! My head feels like it's gonna explode! Bleh!

I know you all LOVE blog candies and I have a HUGE one to share with you, but before I do, I just wanted to share a few pictures of my boys... who are growing up way too fast. I just wanted to capture some of their "cuteness" before it grows away. :)

Well, we took the boys on our annual "Sunday after Thanksgiving" trip to the mall to see Santa. The boys were happy as clams to sit for an hour to wait for Santa. They even found the glitter that the elves left behind when they decorated Santa's house! Looking up to the skylights, they found the reindeer antlers in the window... Keiji said that they weren't moving because the reindeers were too tired from their trip from the North Pole and they were taking naps. Here are some pictures...

Do you see the antlers?

Then we surprised them with a trip to Build A Bear!
Keiji fell in love with "Froggie" and Ken wanted a bear that he named "Santa Claws".

Will you join me in wishing the talented and sweet LISA HJULBERG a very happy birthday?

Lisa is one of our design team members for La-La Land Crafts and I am so blessed to know her. She is just an amazing person, inside and out. Lisa is giving away not one... not two... not three... but FIVE prize packages for her birthday. That's right... one for every decade. Now wait a minute! I didn't say that! LOL! It's from Lisa! Here's what she has to say:

Yep, it's the Big 5-0 for yours truly. Rather than be depressed, I'm focusing on my many blessings...and paying it forward!

I thought about offering one big huge prize, but I always wish everyone could win. Since that isn't possible (at least not until I win the lottery), I'm dividing up the candy into FIVE prize packages... one for every decade of my life so far.

So hop on over to The Craft's Meow and find out what you need to do to join in on the birthday celebration! Don't forget to wish Lisa a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Hey Lisa, I have been in bed for most of the weekend and have not been able to make a birthday card for you. I will get to it later tonight! I love you, girl! Happy, happy, HAPPY birthday, my friend.
