A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

Welcome, Stamplings!

Hammy and I and the Mister want to wish everyone
the Merriest of Christmases
and the Happiest of Hannukahs
and the Cheeriest of any other Celebrations!



And if this is a sad holiday for you,
we send you the warmest of hugs!

Merry Christmas Darnell, to you and yours. SO sweet to see hammy all dressed up. Thanks for the hugs, 11 years today since my Mom passed. Still a tough day.

What a delight to see Hammy so festively arrayed. Thank you for your friendship and support this year. It means so much... Happy Holidays.

Happy holiday and all the best you and your family.

Susan said...

Thanks for the warm hugs. This is the second Christmas without my wonderful Mum and this year is harder than last year. I think we were all numb last year, and now we just miss her so much. So I would call it a sad Christmas - full of all the memories of Christmases past with her.

None-the-less, I'm looking forward to 2018 and our get-together in May - then we can exchange a real hug!

Merry Christmas to you and Hammy and the Mister!

And hugs back to you, Darnell. I hope you have had a wonderful day with the twins and their parents. A good Christmas here, but was unable to see one of my granddaughers due to on-going issues. Next year will be a good year. Wish it for you too! No more illnesses or injuries. :-)

Greta said...

Hope you had a lovely day, my friend! Happy Holidays!
