Nontraditional Holiday Card


I made a MIMI card for you all today. Filled with all my favorite things...die cuts, MIMI from Penny Black, embossing, and patterned paper!  Doesn't it look like she is reaching our to catch a snowflake. Sometimes I lose patience with coloring. Anybody got any tips for treating this?

I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge...Anything Goes!

I have so much going on that I don't know what I want to talk about! Here are 2 ideas off the top of my head:

1. My kids started school (well 3 of them), it's kinda nice to spend time with one kid. Funny one kid seemed overwhelming when I only had one kid, but now it's really easy and so much of a joy!

2. Living with my mom has caused me to gain weight dude, the food is amazing and I can't turn it down and she doesn't take no for an answer. There is tea time and sweets with the tea and well, it's showing up in places I don't want! Here is a sample conversation:

Mom: "Are you hungry?"
Me: "No thanks."
Mom: Are you sure?"
Me: "Yes."
Mom: "Here, I made you a gyro."


  1. Oh this is adorable and so pretty! Thank you so much for sharing your project and for joining us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog! :)

  2. Wida this little girl is totally catching that snowflake! So cute. If it helps, I'm gaining too, and I can't blame it on your mom =/ Must. Get. Off. My....

  3. This card is adorable, Wida! I'm usually not attracted to cards with "people" in them except for yours! Love that beautiful coloring and how she is reaching out to catch a snowflake :)

  4. Your MIMI mini is super-sized with cuteness, Wida! Yes, she looks like she's reaching for a snowflake, and her pink and blue outfit is darling. Those polka-dot boots...seriously adorable. I could use a pair to shuffle around the house when the weather gets cooler. Oh wait...the weather is already cooler! Yeesh...more summer wanted, please. Your mom sounds like my grandmother, who used to have easily 5 different desserts in her house at any given time. Chocolate cake, apple pie, oatmeal cookies, nanaimo bars...
    Enjoy your mom's spoiling and pampering; her way of showing love...

  5. She is so cute! I love Mimi and I had to go and buy some Mimi stamps and I blame you and you alone for that.

  6. Love this card! Your sample conversation is a hoot!

  7. Love your little Mimi! Such a cute card. Your postings are always so heartfelt - I love that about you. You really write from inside. Today's postings made me think about how time goes by so fast - enjoy your little one and let Mom cook for you! You're super blessed to have love coming from both sides of your life (mom and child)! Thank you for always filling my heart with a smile and for teaching me lots about cardmaking! Love your work!
