I always like the ambiance. After dinner we went for a walk and you could already feel the cold in the air. After we returned home again it was time to open the presents :) Every year we see, we won't be buying presents but we always do. Nothing expensive because that's not the point and it takes the fun out of it.
But I was spoiled anyway; a scraf which fits to a jacket I have, a book, a daily planner for 2009 and a lovely showergel. And I also couldn't resist to buy myself the pearl earrings I wanted for so long (country & wishes) and a nice bling bling bracelet in black and silver color (Kruidvat). Love them and already were them every day :)

Kaiser Craft with the Christmas Spirit line. Backside is also nice with snowflakes and stuff. Too bad it's too late for my X mas cards this year.

Supplies: Bazzill Kraft; Making Memories Falala designpaper; ribbon; magnolia stamp and Bruynzeel coloring pencils.
Friday last I had the afternoon off and I put up our Christmas Tree. I always try to make the tree different from the year before with hardly any new items in it. This year only the roses are new but the look and feel of the tree is totally different from last year. I love it.

Last weekend I've been quite busy; I finished the last X Mas cards. I only have to add a small touch of bling bling by adding some hotfix stones :)
As soon as I can upload the photo's, I will put it up here.
I also had some time to make 3 scraplayouts on Saturday and Sunday. And it felt good to do some scrapping again. The last layout I made was over a month ago.
I sorted out some photographs to print. There was a special action at Schleckers. When you order over 100 photos in size 10x15 it's only 8 cts a photo; which is a bargain I have to use of course :) I ordered 125 photos, so I don't have to get bored at all! There are so many old paperlines in my stock which I want to use and make room for new paperlines. I already have fallen in love with the new basic grey line; bittersweet, go check it out here:

We did it at our place and I had bought a lot of yummy stuff; noga; chocolate, Twix, cakes, petit fours, indian cake and of course little sandwiches with jam. Hmmm...
We had a great afternoon; chatting and drinking tea and tasting all the delicious sweet candy.
Doens't it look great and don't you love the colorful blond dinnerset? Blond Amsterdam is a great hype in the Netherlands at this moment. I love the cheerful colors.
Today I was planning to do a lot of stuff; for one making x mas cards. However, it's already afternoon and I still have to start...

I am so happy with them. On the picture with the magnolia stamps you can see clearly the difference between the coloring with normal pencils (on the left) and the stamp colored with Bruynzeel. The result is amazing.
I have not yet had the chance to work with them anymore and don't think I will in this weekend because in only a few hours I will be going to a concert and have to finish some laundry and ironing as well. Really too bad because I have some great papers of Making Memories Falala and I was looking forward to making some X-Mas cards already. This year I was too late in getting Christmas papers, there were only 2 sheets of Falala still available. But since they are doublesided I think I still can make it work along with some cardstock. Of course I will show when they are ready.

Finally, I have bought now a new set of colour pencils from Bruynzeel Sakura for coloring my stamps. They are much cheaper than the Derwent Colour pencils and according the sales lady even better, so... I bought a set of 24 colors along with "doezelaars" and odourless white spirit. Soooo happy with it. Will show a photo later today.
We also had the first snow of this winter. I was still in town for the shopping and all of a sudden it was snowing and the flakes became thicker and falling more quicker with every second. It was not cold enough for the snow to remain, it melted away almost instantly. But for a moment we had a fairytale like scenery. So amazingly beautiful. I love it, but only when don't have to go through traffice but can remain at home. Unfortunately a lot of accidents happen when it's snowing.
I had no camera so I have no photo's but maybe I will get my chance later this weekend because the weatherforecast says there might be more snow until coming Tuesday.

I just finished another Christmas Card. The Cute Card Thursday challenge was to use the colors Red and Green.
I used Basic Grey Dasher and Fruitcake papers, Bazzil Kraft, prima flowers, hotfix stones and some ribbon and safetypin.
