Christmas Cookie Fun

Good morning everyone...can you believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve?? I only have one gift left to buy today and then we need to make some Chex party mix. Tomorrow we will make some cheese soup, chili, and sloppy joes for our Christmas Eve celebration....yummmm!!! I finished filling 20 Christmas stockings so they are ready to go....whoohoo!!! I am a little worried about the weather, though....freezing rains are predicted a little north of us for tomorrow...yikes!! Hope it stays north!!!!

Anyway....I actually made a non-Christmas card!! It felt kinda strange but I managed...LOL!! The bird is one of my favorite Inkadinkado stamps....it was colored with copics to match the colors in the paper...sorry, I don't know the name. I have had the paper scrap for a while....sewing and distressing was done around the edges and the Memory Box diecut was added under the bird image. Maya Road Resin Blossoms finish it off.

I just had to add a picture of my grands making Christmas cookies.....you should have seen the kitchen when they were done!! It took two hours to clean up!! We took a plate of cookies to Grandma and Grandpa Great's house last night and sang some Christmas carols for them. It really made it seem like Christmas except it was in the 60's and no snow...LOL!!
When Cole was finished with that cookie, he had sugar sprinkles a quarter inch think on top...we are saving that one for him!!!
Thanks for stopping by today...I won't be back till after Christmas so I hope you all have a wonderful  and very blessed holiday!!!
