Happy Holidays! + Frosted Medallions Card

Merry Christmas!! We spent the last week visiting my family in Michigan and I ended up staying offline most of the week. So much so that most of the time, I didn't know where I had left my phone! It was FABULOUS!! I spent some time stamping -- mostly finishing up and designing card swaps and preparing for our team gathering (held the day after Christmas). I also baked cookies, played lots of board and card games, enjoyed some fine wine, visited with family, took the kids and cousins to see "Sing!", and worked in three long walks with my sister. The only thing I regret is not taking more pictures! Anna was sick on Christmas Eve, so we didn't snap our usual family picture in front of the tree. And I was so busy playing Santa and handing out presents to 16 people Christmas morning that I didn't get any pictures of the kids opening gifts. Here are some photo highlights from our trip:
Our 2016 photo Christmas card featuring the Davison kids: Thomas (13), Claire (11), Elise (8), and Anna (6). Photos were taken (by me!) at a local park in November.
 Me & my sister Aimee on Christmas Eve before church
Mom & Dad's Christmas tree after we played "Santa".
 A silly "tiger" selfie on our Christmas morning walk: me & Aimee and her husband Josh in the background. It was COLD down by the icy Detroit River!
 Anna & my husband Jim opening presents from my grandparents
Game night with my cousins!
Susan's Sparklers team gathering -- working on a sampler frame using the new Carried Away Designed Paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog. Watch for pics and details of this project in the next week! Thanks to everyone who came! I enjoyed visiting and participating in our yummy potluck!

Last but not least, here is a card I created with some leftover pieces earlier this month. I love this sentiment from the Frosted Medallions stamp set: "The best is yet to come". As we look forward to a brand new year, I have faith and hope that there are many awesome things in store for us and that the best is indeed to come! Happy New Year and holiday hugs to all of my stamping friends around the world!

Thanks for sharing the photos from your Christmas celebration. I love seeing pictures of your children (they are beautiful). My how they've grown! I remember when most of them were born. Happy New Year!
