First of all I want to tell you that I have read and enjoyed all of your Christmas Traditions. You all have great traditions.
It is hard to pick just one and this one don't happen anymore but it was my favorite tradition of all. I used to go shopping every year with my Dad. We would go and buy my Mom her Christmas gifts from Dad. I so miss doing that but they have gotten up there in age and no longer have the health to go out and shop like we used too. Dad and I always had so much fun, we would go for breakfast and then take off and go shopping. We always hit the shops that had those fancy, sexy nighties! Each year Mom would get a new nightie and a robe. Sometimes he would add slippers to that but she always got at least one nightie. We used to laugh cause one of the stores we would go to it was a man that did the sexy nighties. He would hold them up to himself and model them for us. LOL I really miss those times with my Dad and it will be a memory I will cherish forever.
So without further ado...........................
Drum roll please..............................

So cute! Family tradition. Christmas Eve we all get a brand new pair of jammies, play a new family board game and sleep in the same room.
So Kelly if you can get a hold of me with your address I can send these goodies out to you. I will give you 24 hours to contact me or I will have my son draw another name and we will go from there. Congrats Kelly, hope to hear from you soon.

Here is a sample of the reindeer all done up. I hope you like him. I got some new Purely Pomegranate Card Stock and love it. I also got the matching satin ribbon.
The main card is Purely Pomegranate cs stamped layered on WW, with the flannel background in white. Love how that turned out.
I stamped the image of the reindeer in Choc Chip and colored him in with chalks. I used the biggest 1 3/4 inch square punch for him. I then layered him on some PP and then again on WW.
I stamped snowflakes on a strip of PP mounted this to WW and attached to the front of the card. Added a layer of ribbon over that and then mounted the Reindeer onto the card.
I think he turned out rather well.
