Happy Christmas Eve!

December 24 is such a magical day. All the busyness of preparing for the holiday is over and we can relax and spend time with family. We still have the aniticipation of Christmas, without the sadness that the holiday is over.

I still have two more sets of matchboxes to share. Here is the box I made for Day 24:

And the oh so fabulous box I received from Heidi Wallace. Absolutely one of my top three favorite boxes.

Heidi not only turned her matchbox into a little house, but it's a lovely little sparkly, colorful, perfect house!

And the altered vintage photo she enclosed? The cherry on top!

Tomorrow, I will share the last matchboxes.

My husband and I exchanged our gifts last night, so I can share the card I made for him. I wanted something that didn't look like any of the other Christmas cards I made this year, so he would know it was special just for him.

I pulled some "vintage" Cosmo Cricket paper from my stash and just started layering pieces. I get a lot of Christmas inspiration from song lyrics and this was no exception. I made the title using my Dymo label maker.

Luckily, I already had the red velvet heart stitched up, so this came together pretty quickly. I tied a piece of vintage lace around the heart and adhered it to the card on top of another piece of old lace. The chipboard tag is part of the same Cosmo Cricket kit.

These matchboxes have been such a treat, I look forward to trying them sometime, we should do a swap :) Although mine will probably not be so hot :)

Merry Christmas to you and David, may it be bright and cheerful and Happy New Year! Travel safe to NJ.
