Home for the Holidays

Merry Christmas everyone! We had our family dinner yesterday, prime rib and all the fixings! I used the temperature probe on my oven for the first time. Way cool! Probe your meat, plug it into the outlet inside the oven, set the temperature you want your meat at, set the oven temp and that's it. The oven display shows what temp the roast is at and when it hits the desired temp, it shut off and beeps! No guessing! It was perfect!
Anyhow, I needed another gift card holder for Casino gift certificates for my parents. These aren't gambling money, they are for the buffet. My mom is quite the regular there so she has tickets for all the upcoming shows and we thought we could treat them to the buffet before or after the show.

I coloured up this house a few weeks ago and almost gave up on it because it was a LOT of work but I kept at it and pulled it out of my stash to finish it this morning. instead of using the stamp that came with the board and beam accessories i used liquid applique with glitter. The image was coloured with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol and i sponged some versamagic thatched straw on the edges.

Better go get ready...we are heading to my brothers place in London this afternoon for the BIG parents will be there and all my sister in law's family...should be about 25 people in all.

Merry Christmas!

Your definitely a busy one......not sure how you keep up the pace. Love your card and colouring. Hopefully since I will be off until next year I will get a chance to do some prisma colouring.

Another great card - love the colouring and the DP - AND the inside is beautiful too. This adds so much to the inside - that little extra something.
Hope you have a great time in London with your family.
Merry Christmas and all the best in 2009.

Great image and naturally wonderful colouring Linda!! I agree-it is a lot of fiddling with that stamp - your oven sounds marvellous - I am drooling with envy! Have a happy holiday!
