BowHolly_2
This gorgeous and sweet card is by Chari. She used the mistletoe from Bows and Holly and combined it with a sweet custom sentiment using Sally’s ABCs and Smitty’s ABCs. Her swirly border is from Sew Lovely and the hearts are from My Silly Valentine. This card just makes me smile! It is a great holiday card idea for the love of your life! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Thanks for fabulous inspiration! WONDERFUL cards. One of my favorite holiday memories is from three years ago, when we surprised my sister and her family – who had had to stay home because they had the flu, by being their second Santa for the evening delivering more presents. The children still talk about the Christmas when they had TWO Santas as their best (-:.

  2. My favorite holiday memory… I can't come up with a spesific one right now, but it's always special hanging the up my lighted star in the window early every December. It's a moment when I really feel the Christmas Spirit! Oh, and I think I remember loving the Christmas Eve's when I was younger, singing in a choir in the church every year. Those beautiful Christmas songs we sang then are still some of my favorites =)

  3. These are all so gorgeous!! The video is adorable as always Kelly Marie!!
    My favourite memory is lying under the Christmas tree staring up through all the lights and twinkling and just soaking in the magic ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Loving the DT's projects and your snow-family card is just gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚ I love watching your videos – always such a happy experience.

    My favourite holiday memory was the year I had to dress up as Santa. I was a teenager at the time and the idea was to fool my youngest brother (9 years younger than me) in still believing in Santa. Needless to say he figured it out almost instantly – smart little bugger. We played dumb off course.

    Years later (when he was a teen) he casually asked me one day if it really was me playing Santa that one year. I decided to come clean and put him out of his misery ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. What great DT projects!

    my favorite holiday memory is a few years ago, when my 2 oldest children were just old enough to be wide-eyed and giddy over everything christmas. It was magical ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Oh, love the cards, especially the mistletoe card, fantastic!. My favourite holiday memory would be the first Christmas with our son…it was so special having him with us!

  7. My favorite holiday memory was when my husband's unit came home early from Afghanistan just in time for Christmas. My husband hates putting up the Christmas tree because I'm such a crazed woman about it being perfectly straight. So my friend Rachel and I went and cut down a tree, set it up (straight), and decorated it. It was a little thing compared to him being home safe, but he was beyond delighted to sit by the pretty tree that he didn't have to do anything to. He didn't mind the new grill I bought him either. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. lovely cards!!

    My favorite holiday memories are of those years we celebrated with my aunt, uncle & cousins… kids all together, much fun & chaos, good food, and then the day after xmas was an all-day shopping spree and chinese good for dinner.

  9. My favorite holiday memory is when my now husband came home from Iraq a week before Christmas and proposed. I will never forget that moment and how happy & truly blessed I was.

    This card is adoreable!!!!! I love this snowman set ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. That card is just so beautiful! You always make it look so easy!!
    My favorite memory is when we would get up so early and my mother would always be up waiting for us with as much excitement as we had. I don't think she ever slept on Christmas eve!! She ALWAYS made it so special for us. We lost her 2 years ago and I have such wonderful memories to make me smile! I truly hope I am making great memories for my son!!
    Thanks for chance!

  11. Such cute stamps!
    My favorite memory is a recurring one: I love decorating the tree! When I was a kid, we turned on whatever Christmas specials we could find in those pre-VCR days…these days, I just pop in a DVD and decorate away!

  12. The cards from DT are just gorgeous.

    My favorite memory was a couple years ago when we had an early Christmas gathering with my grandma, aunties, uncles and cousins. It was a bbq followed by games and present exchange. One of the rare occasions where everyone of us were gathered together.

  13. Gorgeous cards! My favorite holiday memory is going out after church, but before bed on Christmas Eve and driving around to all the different neighborhoods to look at Christmas lights.

  14. My favorite holiday memory is the year I "helped" Santa and called my goddaughter (we call her Lana, but her actual name is Alana and I believe she was 4 that year) to ask her how she liked her new bike helmet that Santa personalized for her…
    She said she loved it, except that Santa put an L on her hat and her name started with an A so she guessed Santa couldn't spell, but she forgave him. I asked didn't she think he used the L because people called her Lana rather than Alana…she didn't think so LOL!

  15. Awesome cards…great inspirations!!
    My favorite holiday memories are every Christmas that I am with my family! It keeps getting better and bigger every year!!

  16. What great cards form the DT. That mistletoe card is too sweet and probably just sold Sew Lovely to me. I like how you share the thought process in Lawn Clippings. My fave holiday memory is from 20 years ago when we moved here. We could only find a tiny duplex to rent and there was only room in the eat in kitchen for any shred of tree. We had one of those faux trees in which you inserted every limb according to a chart. So we put one side of it together and tied it to the curtain rod to hold it up. It was beautiful. The pic of our three sons all under 5 years old sitting lined up in front of the fridge with their stockings is precious. Oooh–you just gave me a great altered book idea!

  17. My favorite holiday memory is spending the night with my nieces/nephew on Christmas eve and being able to see their faces light up when they opened presents on Christmas morning!

  18. I love every holiday where my two adult kids are both home! It could be Labor Day, Christmas or Memorial day! It is so tough now that they are older!

  19. Love the mistletoe card! My favorite memory is my son's first Christmas. We plopped him amongst the presents under the tree Christmas morning where he stared and stared at all the lights. It was so cute.

  20. What fabulous cards! Wow! My most favorite holiday memory happened almost eight years ago when I brought my day old newborn home to open gifts on Christmas evening. He was the best and always will be the best Christmas present ever.

  21. I always enjoy and get so much inspiration from you ladies. My favorite Christmas memories are every Christmas I've had since my children were born, they've all been very special.

  22. Thanks for all of the holiday inspiration. One of my favorite holiday memories is a recent one. We surprised our daughter-in-law with a special gift which moved her to tears, which of course moved me to tears. Giving is always so much better than receiving.

  23. What fabulous creativity on these card creations!

    My favorite holiday memory was the year my siblings and I woke up to see sleigh tracks and hoof marks in the snow in our front yard where santa had parked his reindeer. Years later we would learn that my dad had created this wonderous scene for us kids. Oh the magic of christmas!

  24. My favorte holiday memory was when I was little, growing up in a small Alaskan town. My parents brought my brother and me to a holiday get together with other family friends and their children. Soon, we heard Santa arrive, but not because of the clatter of 8 reindeer, but because Santa arrived on a snowmobile! We watched Santa come in, and he greeted us and passed out presents to all the kids! He gave a hearty Ho Ho Ho and disappeared into the night, and we watched him drive away on his snowmobile. It was truly magical!

    Love all these cards from the DT, and of course the snowfamily in the frame. Wonderful!

  25. Love your card….and all the patterned paper you used!

    My favorite holiday memory is when my son was younger and we would hide his "main" gift and leave him notes with clues on it and send him all over the house to look for it! When we finally stopped doing it when he was in his mid teens he was so disappointed and asked us not to stop that tradition! ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. oh wow, the cards are awesome! I feel like getting stampy!

    My favorite holiday memory is when I was little, I got the baby doll that I wanted so badly, the Baby This And That, lol!

  27. Such cute cards! I have so many "favorite" holiday memories! Hard to just pick one. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love watching my girls excitedly open their gifts! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the chance to win! I love your stamps!!

  28. Great cards! I love the mistletoe one, and the one from the video/Cards that Care. One of my favorite holiday memories was the year my brother and I were downstairs at 4 in the morning shaking presents (our annual ritual since we weren't allowed to wake anyone else up at that point, but could go down and ogle the tree/gifts), and we flipped over this giant box for me only to discover that my mom hadn't bothered to wrap the bottom of the box….it was a dollhouse kit!

  29. I love all of these cards. Have have already been using my "frosty" stamps on almost all of my Christmas cards…I just can't seem to get enough of them ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Fave holiday memory? The year that my daughter was born on Christmas Eve!! Who could forget spending Christmas in the hospital maternity ward with a brand new bundle of love!

  31. Cute cards ladies! They are all great.

    I don't have a specific memory but I have fond memories of spending Christmas day at my grandma's house with my cousins and just being together.

  32. LOVE these card ideas… Fantastic inspiration!!

    My favorite holiday memory is of my dad clearing out the living room to make way for "the table". Any furniture that could be removed was put in a my parents bedroom (there was furniture stacked to the ceiling!!

    The "table" was actually two large boardroom tables put end to end, with one huge piece of plywood over the top of both. My mom would then cover it with a huge handmade tablecloth.

    There were atleast 20 guests each year…. but to a little kid it seemed like the entire world was there!

    Come to think of it, I'm gonna have to pull some pics and do a scrapbook page about this ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks again

    Kimberley

  33. what a fun and sweet card! i always look forward to your videos and posts! you have awesome ideas that make me want to run to my stamps and play! ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. I love the design team's projects! I would have to say that each holiday I spend with my family is a favorite memory. Time is precious and the holidays are a great time to spend with family. If I had to pick just one memory though, I'd have to go with when my husband and I spent New Years in Vail, Co. It was beautiful and romantic. Thanks for the chance to win!

  35. Awesome design team cards. Love them all! Thanks for the video. I always love watching your videos. My favorite holiday memory would be from when I was a kid, Christmas Eve was pretty much the only time my brother and I didn't fight about something. We would go to bed super early and we would sleep on the floor with our heads out the door or bedrooms so we could talk to each other and then wake each other up in the morning to open presents.

  36. Some wonderful inspiration today by your awesome design team! I am blessed to have many wonderful holiday memories so just one quick one would be; the first Christmas when we had a son-in-law after raising 2 daughters. It was so fun to shop for young man presents and it was really fun watching him open his gifts.

  37. SO cute!! My favorite Holiday Memory? I have alot of them that are special for different reasons but when we lived in Mass. we would spend Christmas Eve at our friends house and I looked forward to it every year and miss that event and our friends so much now that we are stationed in Louisiana.

  38. I love all the cardsโ€ฆand always enjoy your videos!

    Until our son was 16 we always had a live tree for Christmas. We would bring our tree home and cut off the end of the trunk so it could get water. We would then decorate the little circle of tree trunk, add the date, drill a small hole in it, and hang it on the tree. Those are some of my most favorite holiday memories, and also some of my favorite decorations.

  39. Those cards are gorgeous and super cute!

    I remember when I was little, we lived in an apartment so we didn't have a tree! So on Christmas day, I found a bag full of toys at our door! I was so excited!!

  40. My favorite memory was the "guess who" present under the tree. There was always a mystery gift with no name and it drove us kids nuts wondering who it would be for…we weren't smart enough to realize she rotated it every year lol.

  41. Thanks for the Holiday inspiration. I love the versatility of these stamp sets. The snowmen in the frame is such an ADORABLE idea. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!!

  42. The cards today are so fun! Really put me in the spirit.

    My memory is of Christmas morning growing up. My parents really made it special. When we went to bed on Christmas Eve, there was no tree, no decorations, but when we got up on Christmas morning, they had done everything in 1 night – always a freshly cut tree with the wonderful pine smell, and underneath it all those presents! My Mom said that she was often just getting to bed about the time we were awakening!

  43. Awesome cards by the design team! I also love the card you made for the
    card drive–so brightly colored and
    cheerful. My favorite holiday memories involve sharing Thanksgiving
    with my family.

  44. My fave holiday memory is playing bingo with the family (around 40 of us) and everyone trying to win a bottle of ketchup! We all were crazy for it – it was so funny.

  45. I loved it one year when the boys came downstairs Christmas morning and found the cookies were gone and the stocking were filled. They were ELATED! (:

  46. Very cute card. I'm going to have to use that frame idea.

    My favorite holiday memories are the times we spend with my in-laws. There is always a lot of people, lots of love and plenty of food and good times.

  47. WOW! Amazing job DT!!!! You rock my socks off this Monday morning! I love each & every one, but Chari is blowing me away here!!! I'm totally inspired & can't wait to dig into Bows & Holly when I get home tonight (picked it up a few wks back, but haven't played yet).

    My fave Christmas memory was last year. Our son was 5 & daughter was 2 and it was just magical to see the wonder of Christmas morning through their eyes. Our amazingly blessed family of 4. Complete and sharing a Christmas in our home. The pure bliss that my hubs & I felt was amazing. It's like we waited our whole lives for moments like that.

    Have a great day!

  48. Amazing projects all! My favorite memories are from when I was a kid- my parents would have a holiday open-house and my friends would come with their parents. I had my own mini-party in my room with my own full-sized, decorated tree (that's a story of its own!) We'd raid the munchies downstairs and then go to my room to open gifts to each other and generally talk without our parents around. ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. My favorite holiday memory(s) was the first Christmas that each of my children became 'aware' of Christmas and all the trees & lights… The look of magic and awe on their sweet little faces was the most wonderful thing…

  50. Gorgeous cards! Love them all! My favorite memory is of our family Christmas parties when I was a kid. My Uncle Lenny would go "take a nap" and soon after Santa Claus would show up and he and my Grandma would hand out gifts to everyone. Funny how Santa looked remarkably like my Uncle! LOL! Thanks for the chance to win!

  51. My fav holiday was last year with my daughter's first Diwali (Indian festival of lights)with her grandpa when she was beaming with joy having fun with the colorful sparklers !:)

  52. We live down the street from an amusement park. A couple of years ago a family who had lost their father earlier that year decided to spend Christmas at the park. We met them in line for a ride and ended up spending the evening with this amazing family. Two day's later on Christmas Eve the oldest daughter got sick, they called us for help. We dropped what we were doing, drove over with home made chicken soup and a few other things. We talked them into letting us bring them breakfast for Christmas morning. It was a very special few days of serving a wonderful family though such a difficult time. I will never forget it. Through social media were still friends ๐Ÿ˜€

  53. Beautiful cards! So bright and happy ๐Ÿ™‚ My fav holiday memory would have to be when I was 6 and I had begged and begged for Barbie's Camper (you know, that big pink camper with a bed, shower, kitchen, etc)…Oh how I wanted that camper! When I looked under the tree, I saw no box large enough for my camper. I stiffened my upper lip, and tried to be cheery. About 15 minutes later, my brother came through the door pushing my camper! With a new Barbie in it, too!! Oh, that much joy was hard to contain…even now it brings a smile to my face ๐Ÿ™‚

  54. I don't know if I could come up with a specific memory, but the excitement my girls get when they get on their warmest pj's and grab a blanket to get in the car to go get hot chocolate at starbucks and then drive around to look at holiday lights is something I look forward to every year ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. These cards are so gorgeous and inspiring! It's hard to pick just one memory as a favorite…I think I'll pick going to my grandparent's house when I was little. They always had the prettiest tree, with lots of old ornaments, and I got to see my cousins and eat a delicious Christmas dinner. I'm getting a little hungry thinking about it! =P

  56. Favorite Holiday memory has got to be last year when my youngest son (8yr.old) FINALLY got a Nerf gun. (I have a thing about the boys & them having "weapons" to go nuts in the house) BUT last year I broke down although it wasn't me who brought it but Santa. The face on that boy when he opened it his gift, was BEYOND priceless, (Hubby & I got teary eyed as we saw what was happening) Our son lost his breathe for a few minutes and started to cry happy tears and starting running around the living room screaming YES,YES FINALLY… Hmm Wonder HOW the HECK is Santa gonna top that this year? ๐Ÿ™‚

  57. All of these inspirations are ADORABLE! I love them all. ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite holiday memory is the first big family get together at Grandma's house for Christmas after not seeing the family in quite a while… Reunions are so fun during the holidays. I love my family!

  58. This card is absolutely amazing! I just love the frame with the snowmen inside!! Beautiful! My favorite memory is having a big snow ball fight with my group of friends and eating together afterwards. Nice and cozy ๐Ÿ™‚

  59. I LOVE all the cute and pretty cards, they are really inspirational for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ My fondest memory of Christmas is when I was about 6, I was a skinny kid and always cold. I got slippers and a housecoat for Christmas, and I wore those slippers TO BED!

  60. Love the stamps! My favorite holiday memories are sitting in the evenings and only the Christmas lights shining brightly in the house…love it!
    Thanks for a chance to win.

  61. So much lovely inspiration!

    My favorite Christmas memory is walking through my grandparents neighborhood on Christmas Eve with my cousins and uncles, looking at the lights, singing carols, and usually spotting Rudolph's red light (airplane) high in the sky. Then we'd get back to the house to discover that we'd just missed Santa. We've always opened presents on Christmas Eve night, and I love it that way!

  62. Love those cards! You know, I don't often think back to previous holidays, because not all of my Christmases were great. However, there is one in particular that sticks out. My brother had married his first wife and moved out of state. A few years later, they were divorced, but he stayed where he was. One year, he called me a few days before Christmas to say he was coming for a visit, but not to tell our parents. He showed up at about 2 am on Xmas eve, and bedded down in a sleeping bag under the Christmas tree. Imagine my folks' surprise when they woke up xmas morning & there he was, with a big red bow! I still get choked up about it!!

  63. I love these stamps, actually I am crazy for all your stamps! Thank you for the chance to win. My favorite memory of the holiday season is of helping my Grammy T. make pies and treats to share with all of our friends and family. To this day, there is nothing like Grammy's flitch candy.

  64. My favorite memory is when my son was little and he couldn't wait to see what Santa brought!!!
    Love your snowman card, really love all the cards and love your stamps!! Thanks for sharing!

  65. I got lots of favorite holiday memory. One of my favorite holiday was Christmas 2005. It was the first time after many years when me and my siblings and parents were complete. My brother lives in the Philippines so we don't see him much. He comes and visit here every few years. So it's always nice whenever he comes here to visit. Hopefully on his next visit he'll be here with his family (I haven't met my nieces yet).

  66. My favorite memory is when my 2 boys helped me make cookies and they had more flour & sugar on them instead of the bowl. They are my pride and joy. Love all of your stamps, just placed ANOTHER order today. LOL ! Thanks for a chance to win MORE!!

  67. I love Christmas so very much, so it's hard to choose just one thing. One of my "new" favorite memories is making Christmas ornaments every year with my boys for them to give out as gifts.

  68. One of my favorite memories is rocking my infant son in front of the Christmas tree late at night crying with joy and feeling so blessed to be his mommy…30 years ago! Oh, I'm still blessed to be his mom AND Grandma to his two children!!

  69. Christmas is a wonderful time of the year when you are with your family and enjoying your grandchildren opening up their presents and seeing their faces. Awesome.

  70. My favorite holiday memory is having snow on Thanksgiving after moving to the upper midwest from the southeast. We never had white Christmases, much less a white turkey day!

  71. The instructor of our Copic class introduced us to Lawn Fawn stamps. I just ordered 4 Christmas/winter sets and these cards give me great ideas for Christmas cards! Thanks!

  72. Love all of the samples. One of my favorite christmas memories is when several of our neighobrs got together and each child decorated their own gingerbread house.

  73. It's hard for me to think of one Specific Christmas that is my Favorite. I do miss the Times at my Grandparents Homes. The House filled with Family, Wonderful Food, The Christmas Trees with Presents, The Fire going in the Fireplace, Christmas Music going on the record player. Sure wish I could go back. But now I am making wonderful Memories with my little Grand Children. Love all of your Wonderful Christmas Cards! :0)

  74. My favourite holiday memory was the tradition of mum and dad putting something sporty or that could be used outside in our stockings so that when we got up super early we had something to do. I miss this as my brother now lives 10 hours away! ๐Ÿ™‚ But gorgeous set!

  75. Fab inspiration, I need to get those sets inky again!

    My favourite memory is when my then five year old daughter came downstairs after Santa had visited and said, 'Ooh Mummy, didn't he leave a mess! He could have hoovered up after himself, look at all that glitter'!

  76. I can't think of a favorite specific holiday memory, but my favorite holiday tradition with my family was always when we put the snowman on top of the tree. We didn't have a star- it was a cute cotton snowman, and he looked adorable up there on the tree! To this day, my parents still use the same snowman, although he is now grungy and old….but I don't care! It's my favorite Christmas decoration

  77. My favourite Christmas memories are Christmas Eve with lots of snow and gingerbread cookie smell. I love that time ๐Ÿ™‚

  78. What great cards! I love the one with 3 snowmen! My favourite holiday memory was when my parents tricked me by putting a voucher to get my ears pierced inside a HUGE box and I cried of happiness ๐Ÿ™‚

  79. My favorite Christmas memory is the year we lost power just after supper finished cooking. We got to eat by candlelight and spent the rest of the evening as a family, telling stories and playing cards.

  80. Love the DT's inspirational samples ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite holiday memories are from my childhood in Russia. Grandpa Frost is our name for Santa and he has a companion with him on most occasions (Snow Maiden, his Granddaughter)… I used to play her in a children's theatre studio and loved the happy lil' faces around enjoying our shows ๐Ÿ™‚
    Anna.

  81. Great creations from the DT!
    My favorite memory is my sister and I sneaking to the Christmas tree and peeling off tape to find out what type of Cabbage Patch doll we received. It is the one memory that sticks in my head from Christmas mornings as a child.

  82. wonderful creations, love them all. beautifully layered, and the additional ribbons and twines were great. thank you for sharing. One of my favorite holiday memories is our first Christmas after we were married. The big tree in the front room, stockings hung on a real fireplace, and the house filled with music and dinner cooking.

  83. Yeay! Another give away! Favorite memory…it had to be the last Christmas we spent in HI. I flew my parents and siblings to HI and it was the first time in a long time we spent the holidays w/my family! It was a nice change for us since we've been moving around a lot due to the military to finally be able to fly family into town and spend it with them!

  84. Great inspiration! As for holiday memory favorites, I always love putting up the Christmas tree. For the past 19 years, I have been making little clay ornaments. As my husband and I unwrap them and hang them, we reminisce about the past 19 years together and the memories we've made together. Can't wait to get it out this year, except I'm worried about the 7 month kitten who loves to play with everything!

  85. My favorite holiday memories are those when my aunts, uncles, and cousins would all gather at my grandmother's house for Christmas. The excitement of all us kids was amazing. We would try so hard to go to sleep, but would spend hours up late playing around and talking.

  86. One of my favourite memories is when we were kids, going to my grandparents house Christmas morning and all the family and neighbours (even the ones who had moved away) would call in to say Hi!

  87. amazing video-thanks so much! One of my favorite memories is when my parents met my 2 1/2 month old daughter (their first grandchild) for the very first time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  88. Amazing DT samples and video ๐Ÿ™‚
    One of my favorite memories is the year "Santa" brought a big and beautiful cardboard house for my sister and me. It has a door, a window and even a weathercock. My father mounted it and we played with it all Christmas day (and lots of days after that, lol)

  89. I think that it might be when my husband(then my boyfriend) saved allll his little bit of money to buy me the expensive china and crystal that I loved!!!!!

  90. Great cards! My favorite memory of Christmas is when I was a kid living in Brazil. My dad would get the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve and we (the kids) would decorate it while my mom and dad cooked a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner.

  91. All of these cards are wonderful!! My favorite memory is when my two year old saw all of his presents from Santa and his eyes were as big as saucers!!

  92. I have a serious addiction to snowmen so would love this set! One of my favorite holiday memories is when my daughter, now 19, was about 2 and we got an ornament for the tree called Bradley the Bubble-Blowing Bear. You put bubble solution in Bradley and he actually puffs outs spheres…well, she loved that thing when she was little and would comment every time Bradley blew a bubble. Amazingly, it still works – she doesn't comment anymore, but I still put it on the tree every year.

  93. Gorgeous cards!! I am so behind in my Christmas cards, I say this every year though ๐Ÿ˜‰ My fave memory would be last Christmas, when our family was able to be together with my dad. I think it's probably our last one with my dad in his old self. His memory is fading so fast. However, I'm looking forward to this year's too. Thanks for the inspiration!

  94. One of my favorite memopries was the first time my DH & I went up in the mountains of Western Montana to cut our tree. It was so beautiful with tons of snow and so many trees!! We had so much fun! That's what I love about these stamp sets….So much FUN!!!

  95. My favorite memory is going to my Grandmother's house Christmas eve. My whole family gathered there, and we laughed, opened presents, ate the same yummy things each year, and came home late. I still remember how it felt to be almost asleep, and loaded into a cold wintery car for the ride home! And after 12 years of Grandma being gone, I still miss Christmas at her house!

  96. Since i stay in a different state than my family, my favorite holiday memories are made when I get to see my family and spend some fabulous moments with them, celebrating together ๐Ÿ™‚

  97. beautiful cards and ideas. I have so many wonderful Holiday memories and as my family gets larger, the more I have for the next year. One tradition we have is selling Christmas Trees as a family since the boys were all small..Now my grandchildren are helping and it is such a fun time for us all spending time together at our little lot in town.

  98. I just love all of the cards!! Such fabulous work by all of the design team members. I really like to see how your card came together in the video, too. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    My favorite holiday memory is actually a collection of them from when I was a kid. Every year, all of our extended family would get together at grandma's house on Christmas eve and spend the day together with lots of yummy food and a fun little gift exchange. I totally miss those days!!

  99. When I was little, we would go to town the day after Thanksgiving to see Santa come in on the back of a firetruck. Even though I was too scared to talk to him, I remember being so excited to see him.

  100. Gorgeous inspiration by the DT! One of my favorite winter memories was buying everything on my sister's wish list to Santa, wrapping them all up and setting it by the fireplace, and watching her reaction the on Christmas morning.

  101. Wow! So much cool ideas and fun inspiration, thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚
    One of my fave memories is making liver sausages and meat sausages with my grandma. We'd spend the entire day in her 'summer kitchen' (a small hut in the yard), grinding meat, stuffing sausages and boiling them on the sizzling hot cast iron stove. Haha, I realise now I must sound a hundred years old!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh I miss those yummy sausages!! …and my grandma. ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. Such cuteness – love the cards! One favorite memory is the first time in several years that my parents, siblings and I got to spend Christmas together – it was the Christmas after we moved back from living overseas. And we stayed up late and laughed and reminisced and enjoyed each other. It was wonderful!

    My fave holiday memory would be my first holiday with my lovely Pim (17 years ago ๐Ÿ˜‰ His family always went skiing and I never did before, but then I could come with them!!! That was amazing!!! It was with christmas and christmas is also my birthday and they all had little gifts for me!! That was so perfect, with all the snow outside, a fire in the fireplace and feeling so welcome with your new in-laws! Perfect!!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  106. gorgeous cards! My favorite memory is receiving a present that I had always wanted but my parents said they could not afford, then on Christmas Eve they gave me the present as they had been saving the money for months. The present you ask… a typewriter. ๐Ÿ™‚

  107. My favourite memory is the feeling of joy and wonder I would get when I'd 1st walk into the living room Christmas morning. My mom always woke up before me and there would only be the Christmas tree lights on and music playing.

  108. One of my favorite holiday memories as a child was watching Rudolph and Frosty on tv. ๐Ÿ™‚ That always made me so happy!

  109. My favourite holiday memory is the year my teen age brother and I had our portrait taken together and gave it to my mum for Christmas. She hadn't had a professional photo of us together since we were six! She was so touched she cried!

  110. Awesome cards!

    My favorite holiday memory happens five years ago when my daughter was born earlier and her full moon (Chinese custom) fall on Christmas Day itself! That is the best memory as my husband and I joke that she is eager to come out to celebrate Christmas with us!

  111. Fabulous cards from the DT! My fave holiday memory is of the first Christmas with my son. We were in Minnesota and my first blizzard had just hit (I grew up in southern California!) and it was just me, my hubby, and our new little baby!

  112. Fabulous DT cards! I adore the first one from Chari. How clever? I've never thought to make a special card for my love! It's perfect. Fav holiday memory? My mom whistled an entire book of Christmas carols to get us to fall asleep so she could, ahem, set up Christmas morning for us!

  113. My favorite Christmas memory is of Christmas on my grandparents farm in Iowa. We would be all snug in their farm house in the evening and play in all that crisp snow with cousins, Aunts and Uncles during the day. My grandpa would even pull a sled behind his tractor and we would all love going for a ride! Plus all those cookies my grandma made!

  114. My favorite holiday memories are from when I was a kid and it seemed like we spent the whole week of Christmas/New Year's over at my grandparents house. The turkey, yams, pumpkin pie etc was never ending; the decorations were beautiful; and my cousins and siblings and I had a blast together. I always get that nostalgic feeling when I think back on it

  115. gorgeous projects from DT. My favoirate holiday memories are the ones with biggest family get-together since my family lives all over the world. it is not easy to have family gethering.

  116. My favorite memory is watching the Christmas shows on tv! I have carried this into my family and watch with my children. We look forward to it every year!

  118. My favorite winter memory is when I was about 8 and I woke up at 3am to see if Santa had came, he did so I separated all of my family member's gifts out into piles and then I was so tired that I fell asleep under the tree haha I woke up an hour later and was SO excited I raced to get my mom and dad up to open presents! haha ๐Ÿ™‚

  119. My favourite Christmas memory is my Mom leaving a brand new pair of Winter pyjamas(sometimes they were homemade by my MOM) on our bed on Christmas eve, when we got home from church!!! I have carried this tradition on with my family, everybody always love new jammies to wear at Christmas!

  120. Thanks for the inspiration.
    .need all the help I can get this year.

    One of my favorite memories was a few years ago when my kids were little. We woke up to the sound of their soft voices coming from the family room. The, then, three of them were laying on the floor discussing what goodies they could see peeking out the tops of their stockings and trying to guess what was hidden from sight. It was then decided they'd waited long enough and came to wake us up.

  121. my favorite holiday memory is attending candle light service at church on Christmas Eve and then taking a drive around town checking out the lovely Christmas lights and decorations

  123. Those samples are gorgeous! My fav memory is cookies and egg nog on christmas eve . My mom would let us finally sample her holiday cookies on christmas eve when we were growing up.

  125. My favorite holiday memory was being able to see my mother's happiness when we moved into her dream house, sad because cancer took her away from us within 3 months of moving in. But spending her last Thanksgiving and Christmas with us was unforgettable.

  126. My favourite holiday memory is when my youngest was 6.. hubby and I had teased her for months that all she was getting for Christmas was garbage…. so you can only imagine her upset Christmas Day when all of her gifts were in garbage bags!!!! She even dragged them to the garbage can for disposal. We tried not to be too alarmed over this, and finally showed all her gifts, just put in three big garbage bags. She was happy with the gifts, but still hasn't forgotten that stunt we pulled… we laugh about it, now that she's out of the house ๐Ÿ™‚

  127. Lovely cards – I can't wait to see more!! My favorite holiday memory is my first Christmas visiting my husband's family in Missouri 7 years ago! They made me feel so welcome and special, I will never forget it!!

  128. Really fun and festive DT projects and cards! Awesome job!

    Thank you so much for the inspiration, esp. the video tutorials!

  130. My favorite holiday memory is having a white christmas with my family. Thanks for the sharing and giveaway. Love love love your project.

  131. One of my favorite memories is that 2 years ago, my boyfriend surprised me and booked a harbor-view hotel room on the Chinese New Year. I really like fireworks but I don't always go to see the fireworks because it's usually very crowded. So I really enjoyed watching it, comfortably at a hotel room, away from the crowded. =)

  132. I don't have a favorite holiday memory. I just enjoy to be together with my family! Thanks for a chance to win!

  133. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration! My favourite Christmas memory is from a couple of years ago. My husband and I were living away from home and my family came for Christmas (which was a big deal cause many of them had never been on a plane before). Thanks for a chance to win these great stamp sets!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  134. Love the cards!
    One of my different Christmas memories goes back a long while, when I was about 12. Being "down under" our Christmases were hot! One year, living in a caravan park right on the beach, our time was mostly spent in the water – usually with the resultant sunburn. This memory is of us five kids sitting round on Christmas afternoon listening to Mum reading us "Tom Sawyer" while we peeled strips of skin off each other.

  135. What amazing samples from the DT! There's always so much amazing inspiration! Wow it is hard to pick a favorite holiday memory, so I'll list a few of my most memorable! I always love my Dad and I's tradition of putting up our Christmas lights the weekend after Thanksgiving! I also remember the year I thought I saw santa, and of course the last Christmas before my grandmother and uncle passed away — it was a very special holiday that we'll all never forget. =)

  136. My favorite holiday memory is my first Christmas with my hubby! We had such a wonderful Christmas!Awesome projects today! Thank you for the tutorial!

  137. Favorite holiday memory?? There are so many…One of the top ones would be midnight mass in my hometown when I was a kid…our church choir was AMAZING and they'd sing half an hour of carols before mass began. Magical!

  138. My favorite holiday memory has always been decorating the tree with family. Thanks again for the inspiration and giveway! Love Lawn Fawn stamps!

  139. My favorite holiday memory was when my son was 2 and his facial expressions and what he said with every gift he opened. Even the clothes he was excited about!

  140. My favorite holiday memory was when I was a teenager, maybe 16 or 17. My baby brother (then 6 or 7) was on the tail end of his Santa days. He walked into my mom's closet on the 21st of December and saw a mountain of wrapped presents and FREAKED OUT. My quick-thinking older brother snuck away from the commotion, and when he came back, found a letter from Santa, telling my mom that he was super busy this year, and would she mind hanging onto these gifts for him until Christmas morning? Saved the day – and the holidays! ๐Ÿ™‚

  141. Lovely, wonderful projects! I am always inspired by the design team and by your videos…not that the stamps need much help to inspire. My favorite holiday memory…playing dreidel for jolly ranchers and shelled nuts. To me jolly ranchers will always be associated with the holidays and fun games. Thank you so much for the chance to win.

  142. FABULOUS projects, ladies!!! So super festive and fun!! My favorite Christmas memory is snuggling by a toasty fire with my sweet husband after a long snowshoe on Christmas morning!

  143. love all of the inspiration…
    one memory??? hmm. i really loved being with my family as a kid and one of my best memories is when I was 9 and we picked my brother up from the airport, he was coming home from the service for Christmas. I was so happy to have my family together for the holiday. =)

  144. My dads birthday is on the 24th so sicne I was little we always got to open ONE present on the 24th when my dad opened his birthday presents, then we would have a camp out party with sleeping bags and everything on the livingroom floor!! THe whole family would camp out and it was so fun to wake up on christmas morning all together!! Now that we all are married and have kids we still do this only it is with ALL of us and last year was TOO FUNNY!! =)
    The WHOLE floor was covered with NO ROOM left. I can't wait to hear the kids talking about the memories like me and my siblings do today!! THANKS for the chance to win and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)

  145. My favorite memory is getting the electric elevator barbie house for Christmas!! But then my dad's friend broke it before I got to play with it:(. But i still enjoyed the house!!

  146. Hands down it was the Christmas right before I turned 16. My sister and I lived with our dad and he always tried to be the best parent around. We had bugged him for months (we were obnoxious!) to get the Zero Gravity Cliffhangers (hot wheels track that went up the wall). He did and we played with that thing for HOURS!

  147. Great cards by everyone! My favorite holiday memory is all in the family chipped in to buy my mom a large jewelry box that she wanted. She was so surprised when she opened the box and saw it… she still has that jewelry box and that was about 40 years ago we gave it to her!

    Thanks for all the inspiration and fun!

  149. These are wonderful projects. I always get so many great ideas on these "hops". My favourite Christmas memory is probably two years ago for our daughter's first Christmas. She was only 2 months old but it was such a blessing to have her join us ๐Ÿ™‚

  150. All these cards are gorgeous!!! Love me some Lawn Fawn goodness!!! I don't know if I have a favorite holiday memory. I think every year is just unique and something amazing happens each year. I just love the idea of family all together.

  151. DT, you have really created some special works of art this time! ๐Ÿ™‚

    One of the best Christmases was 1998. Our older son was almost 3 years old and totally caught up in the magic and wonder of Santa and Christmas. Our younger son was born earlier in the month so it was sweet having a newborn in the house. But what made this Christmas even more unique was the ice storm that hit eastern Virginia on Christmas Eve. My parents and both of my sisters lost their electricity, so instead of going to Mom and Dad's on Christmas Day, everyone came out to our house. It was just really special to have everyone here.

  152. My most treasured Christmas memories are of the magic shared when the kids were young. Of course
    when we 8 kids were young our Christmas's were very special and magical too.
    Fabulous creations all!!

  153. My favorite memory is the Christmas we spent on my uncle's farm. He was called away to help a neighbor and while he was gone, Santa appeared for all of us kids!

  154. My favorite holiday memory is waking up at 5am to see the presents Santa left me. They were always un wrapped and right in front of the tree. I didn't know which one to play with first.

  155. I have so many holiday memories as a kid…but the funniest one was when I was about 8 or 9. My mom was a master cake decorator, and she had made a beautiful cake with Santa and his sleigh, even Rudolph was at the front. She was sitting in the front passengers side of the car and my dad was driving. We arrived at my aunt's house. My dad was trying to parallel park, when all of a sudden he hit the brakes. My mom flew forward and the cake completely smashed on the dashboard and ALL over my mom! We all look at her in silence to see her reaction and my dad is apologizing over and over…..What does she do? She starts cracking up laughing because the Santa had flown down her blouse! After all that hard work, my mom still had and HAS a GREAT sense of humor!

  156. Wow! These cards are so beautiful and so inspiring!
    My favorite memory is from my first Christmas here in the USA. When I moved to states from Russia it was on December 9th… We lived in VA back then. When my husband was driving from airport to house, I was amazed by all the lights and decorations. It was like a little fairy-tale! ๐Ÿ™‚

  157. Those rosy cheeks are definitely adorable.

    My favorite holiday memory has to be the year we were in Hawaii for Christmas and we lost power. Being forced to use candle lights while we ate dinner and hung out afterwards was incredible. The sounds of the island and great company could not be beat.

  158. Hi Kelly Marie – I would have to say my most favorite holiday memory is knowing I was coming home to my grandparents house for Christmas. My granddaddy would put up Christmas lights just for us grandkids – he hated putting up those lights!! But he LOVED us, and that is why he did it….Love Making Frostie Friends!! I love all of LF stamps!

  159. my favorite memory is when I had the ENTIRE family at my house. Coming from a "broken" family that had never happened in my memory. When everyone came together for my son's 3rd Christmas is was kind of magical.

  160. My favorite Christmas memory us my families 1st Christmas in our very own place. We the two boys at the time no furniture and I well dressed Christmas tree with tons of gift for the boys I will never forget that Christmas.

    I think the cards look fantastic!!
