I love my nutcracker collection, and as soon as I saw the 2008 Christmas stamps I decided that my nutcrackers would be my theme this year. I like how these turned out . . . after 6 other design failures! The photographs are of our seven precious little grandchildren.


My Pre-Christmas company has gone to the “other grandparents” house for three days, so I’ve had a few minutes to finally finish my card. I am really, really late with them this year . . . and am afraid that they won’t be in any mailboxes before Christmas Day for the first time in several years. My printer konked, and I’ve just begun to install my new one, so maybe tonight I can crank my cards out. The card is a 5 x 7 foldover with our Christmas letter and greetings inside.
