Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!

Hopefully all my family would have received their cards for now so I thought it would be safe to post- this is my Christmas card for this year- I have 3 boys and with an engineering husband they really like moving parts so I try to make somewhat of an interactive card every year and this year I decided to do a water fall card.
Figured out the dimensions based on the pictures I wanted to print out. I was also tired of having to photoshop a picture to send out every year and thought separate pictures would be best. Basecard is whisper white with real red embossed with the Snowburst embossing folder (love the geometric pattern!). Take of strip of Holly Bouquet DSP - it has glitter on it - so sparkly! Took a piece of limeade CS with corner rounded for the right pull out side , scored it to make the waterfall- instructions are everywhere- here is one from Splitcoast Stampers- . Added the pictures printed out wallet size. The cover image and sentiment is Beautiful Season from the IB&C. The image was stamped in black stazon and watercolored using the watercolor crayon then glittered with dazzling diamonds onto shimmery white CS.

Tyler, Kyle and Dylan in order and the three of them during camping this summer with sentiment from Four the Holidays set beneath. Some faraway friends got a short letter I attached to the back for a little update.

I attached a little handle made of roundtab punch- could not live without it!- 2011 stamped with Calendar Alphabet & Numbers in red and tiny snowflake from Snow Swirled in bashful blue.
The pictures have JOY on the right side bottom if you can see it - did not work out as well as I liked but it's like a secret message....
Happy Holidays to you All! and may the new year be filled with good healthy, happiness and good fortune for you all!
with much thanks and Love,

I can't believe you actually thought we would see your hidden message... Not until I put on my 'Lynda' cap on, did I see it! HA!
