embossed leaves...

Happy Monday Friends!!!
I cannot believe that Christmas is over~it always comes and goes so fast! Did you get any new stamping stuff from Santa??? I made an order from Papertrey with some of my Christmas $$, so I am hoping to get some "happy mail" this week.

Mike and I decided to not exchange gifts this year (which was really hard for me, because I am a gift person...I especially like giving gifts!). Well he surprised me with something I have been wanting for a while (I haven't taken a picture yet..so I will post on Wednesday what it is *wink*). He is the best hubby ever (even if he doesn't follow the rules)!!!

I am going to be on a thank you card kick for a little while (LOL! consider yourself warned). I have lots to send out for Christmas thank you's. Here is one I made last week, I actually pulled out my embossing stuff (which I haven't used for a LONG time). I really like how the clear embossing powder gives a darker/shiney color to the stamped image. I will probably be embossing more...since I forgot how cool it is.

Love this card, I have added it to my 'faves' folder as I am sure I will be case-ing it in the near future ;)
