O Holy Night!!

Hi friends & a Happy Thursday to ya!!  I'm off today to National Harbor to see "ICE" at the Gaylord Resort and come snow or high water, we will be on our way to NYC Saturday morning!  Thank goodness for 4-wheel drive, hee hee!  It's supposed to snow in NYC on Christmas Day--my kids are sooo jealous--they've never had a white Christmas before but ya never know.  The weather has been really wacky lately I tell ya!

BTW, I stayed up the night before last to finish an AWESOME book--it was just fabulous.  It's called "Julia's Chocolates" by Cathy Lamb--you have to get thru the first chapter and then it just sucks you in, LOL!  It's a laugh out loud, shocking at times and wonderful story about an odd group of women and what connects them.  A great story about the power of women, friendship, family and love--it is a wonderful read.  If you read it (or have read it already) let me know what you think and which lady you identify with--I'm totally Lydia in a lot of ways, LMBO!  And the breakfast-sausage scene--made me laugh out loud for sure--too funny!!   I'm hoping that Santa really does bring me that Kindle I'm so wishing for cuz' I will be getting her other books downloaded for sure :o)

O Holy Night


So this is my last Christmas card of the year (sadly)--and I chose this beautiful image from Magnolia-licious called "Christmas Morning Tilda".  I actually had a dream about this card, hee hee--no lie I tell ya & it turned out exactly like I wanted it to!  I kept the colors all cream with just touches of navy blue.  I embossed 2 layers of cs with my 2 CB folders (holiday ones)--I added stickles in between the stripes of the one embossed layer for sparkle and traced around the larger layer with my Gold Paint Pen.  The sentiment is from PTI's "Silent Night" set and cut out with my Nestabilities Fancy Tags--I added some Gold Bella Baubles, stickles and more gold outlining.  The large bow was made with my Bow Easy of course :o)!!


This gorgeous Tilda (don't ya love her curly, long hair) was colored with Copics and accented with stardust Stickles.  I used these Copic colors:  B39,B37,B26,B21 on her nightgown.  Hope you love her as much as me!

Alrighty I'm off for a few days but will have a post up for you Monday morning (so you won't miss me too much, LOL)!!  Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. This year I am most thankful for my health. I had a really bad October, which included 2 hospital stays, and a total of 3 weeks sick leave from work. I have improved steadily since then, and had my best day yet on Thursday, the 17th - I drove 100 miles to the doctor, spent the day shopping, and drove home, with only sore feet to end the day!

  19. Another stunning card, Suzanne. Oh, this year of all years I am more thankful than ever for my kids and my family. There have been a lot of hard times lately and my kids and my family have an even more important meaning to me. It makes all the material stuff and silly stuff so unimportant when we have our family. Have a great weekend.

  30. I am so thankful for family as there have been some rough times this year but mostly I am thankful that I recovered from my ankle fracture. I couldn't use crutches because of lymphaedema in my right arm so had to use a walker and have a hospital bed downstairs. My stamp room is also upstairs and friends brought down a few supplies and set me up at the kitchen table to stamp! That was a long three months! But now I am healed and thankful for family and friends.

  33. Ofcourse I am thankful for my family but as I was thinkin about this, two really stood out to me. We own our own business and one of our mngrs was robbed at gunpoint while going to the bank. The gun was fired but praise God she was not hurt--very thankful! Second, is for my son's 1:1 aide at school. Garrett is autistic and we have been so blessed to have an aide who is so patient and loving toward him.

    I am most thankful for being laid off! Yes, I know it sounds strange, but I was laid off the Friday before Thanksgiving. It has made this Holiday season much less stressfull. Also, I've been able to stay home with my two year old and have tons of fun! Thanks for your kindness and generosity! Have a very, merry Christmas and Happy 2010!!

  40. I am most thankful for four things this year. My nephew is in Afghanistan in the most dangerous of jobs and is almost half way through his tour. I pray for him every day. Second, my husband got laid off from his job and so far we can still find something to laugh about with each other every day. Third, my son has finally gotten a job as a paramedic/firefighter, something he has been working toward for years. Lastly, I have found a hobby in cardmaking that I love and use to "escape" to when things are tough. Looking at the blogs and beautiful projects people make are so inspiring. Life is good.

  41. Suzanne, this is indeed a beautiful image. I'm so happy to have this stamp too and you've colored her so beautifully with vibrant blues - so vivid. This is a most beautiful and elegant card!

I've met so many wonderful, kind, and encouraging people here on the net and I'm having so much fun with it! Thanks to you too for teaching me how to color - I've enjoyed ALL your tutorials very much. Hugs and Happy Holidays! Angela

  59. I really do have a lot to be thankful for, but I think what I am most thankful for is that my husband's orders to Iraq were rescinded and he did not have to go. There were circumstances surrounding the recision which were difficult, but I don't know how I would have handled the past 5 months without him here.

  60. This year I am most thankful for the support of my husband. After losing my job due to this crummy economy he has not given up on me. He is usually pretty supportive of this crazy hobby we all have and has even helped with building up my studio. So to him I am most thankful!

    I wish you and all your Family all the best this Holiday Season and a Happy and Healthy New Year! Thank you for all the beauty you have shown us and all the knowledge you have shared.

My own bows are totally crappy.

  68. Your card is absolutely amazing, Suzanne! Love the cream and navy and the touch of gold accents.
    I am so thankful for the opportunity we've had this past year to raise three wonderful children while their parents were both serving in the military overseas. They have blessed us more than we will ever know, and our bond with them will be life long. I will be so sad to see them leave in February after 16 months. God has been so faithful to us during this past year+. I'm very thankful for that...
    Merry Christmas and a wonderfully prosperous New Year...hugs...Barb

  89. "Christmas Morning Tilda" is precious...you do beautiful coloring! I just recently found your blog while I was Googling for Copics...what a wonderful Blog!

    I am thankful that while we have all had our fair share of trials this year...God continues to hold us close and keep us close to Him.

    Merry Christmas and Happy 2010 to All!

  90. Suzanne, you create the most beautiful cards and this one is absolutely gorgeous! I love all the details you put in your cards. It all adds to the most scrumptious eye candy!!

    At the top of my gratitude list is my family and friends. I thank God every day for everyone He has given me to love and be loved in return. I have made so many more friends here on the internet through paper crafting sites and blogs. I'm also grateful for a healthier year. Last year had had a TIA, what I refer to as a mini stroke. I'm doing great now with no side effects. I just feel richly blessed to have a home, food on the table, and the ability to enjoy doing those things that bring me the most pleasure. I'm wishing every one here a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!

  95. I am most thankful for:
    my friends and family, if it weren't for them I'm not sure I would even get out of bed in the morning. I am also thankful for my health, had a couple of scares earlier with my heart and fortunately they haven't found anything wrong.

  104. I have so much to be thankful for that it is hard to pick on. I am so very thankful for my parents, children, and grandchildren. I am thankful for my health, as well as my families'. The other big thing I am thankful for is my job. Not everybody is as fortunate as I am to have a great job. I am a nurse and seeing how sick lots of people are makes me realize how fortunate I am.

It's brought me to some amazing friends and opportunities. Thanks Suzanne for being part of that! Merry Christmas!

  116. Wow...beautiful card and awesome goodies!! I am most thankful for something a bit different this year...that I seem to have gotten my Christmas spirit back. I'm thankful for my family and friends and all the other blessings I have every day, but this year is the first year I've looked forward to Christmas in almost 15 years. It has made a huge impact in my home, because we've done a lot of activities together that I usually just let everyone else do and don't participate in...like lighting the tree, making the gingerbread house (tho this year, we did a gingerbread tree for something different). Anyhow...thanks for the chance to win, and have a Merry Christmas! Enjoy NYC, although I have to say...it is very dangerous for you to be driving Saturday...be careful! ~Angela

  119. I am thankful for my husband's 10 years being cancer free after having his larynx removed and learned how to talk again without any aids. We are going to celebrate our 57th Anniversary this March and he has been my strength through all our trials and tribulations, including three bouts of depression, loosing a son to a drunk driver and making sure that I have enough oxygen so that I can go and have a good time no matter what I am going to be doing.

  125. Happy Holidays Suzanne ! As always another or last beautifula Christmas card with Tilda. This year its been a different kind of year with lots going on but I survived it and ready to get it behind me with the tumor removal from my knee, postal management giving me a letter of removal because of my injury but able to win it and returning (Dec.23 -yuk~~ anxiety) but have faith from family, friends,co-workers and lawyer that I can do this and prove the discrimination on how I have been treated. Moving on; I found the Magnolia group and while I was stuck at home from surgery I have been able to have some fun playing with copic markers and a few images !!

  129. This year, I am very thankful to still have a job. It was touch and go over the summer with the possibility of the home I work for closing, so it was a relief that that didn't happen. This is a lousy economy to job search in!

People who love to be creative just as much as I do!!

  139. Beautiful card, Suzanne! I am most thankful for my husband, beautiful daughters, and adorable grandkids. Baby Abby is our latest addition this year and I'm so grateful that her parents decided to get counseling and try to work out their issues. It's been a rough year for them and I'm so grateful that in the disposable world they are trying to work things out and not just give up - their 3 beautiful children deserve that.

  140. This year, I am most thankful for things to be working out in between me and my boyfriend. No, I am not a love struck teenager, it's just that things were really rough in between us last year and it took a lot of energy out of the both of us. We decided that we wanted to try it again and there are just too much in between us to just throw it all away, so here we are this year, together and celebrating the holidays together.

  141. Oh Suzanne, your card is GORGEOUS! I love this Tilda's long hair. And of course your coloring is absolutely AMAZING! I really need that Bow Easy to make those beautiful bows!

    I am so very thankful for the Lord's blessings on my family. It's been a crazy year for us: drug addiction (my youngest son.....PTL he's doing well now), our beloved golden retriever, Chloe, passed away and then in Sept. we attended my niece's beautiful wedding in Hershey, PA as part of a 5-day New York visit with my son & daughter-in-law who moved to Queens almost 2 years ago (he's a resident ER Dr at St. Barnabas in the Bronx).

    The economy has hit us HARD here in southern California (my hubby is in construction.....ouch) but the Lord is giving us wisdom & helping us to hang onto our home. 2010 is going to be a GREAT year!

    Have a great trip!

  146. I am thankful for family. I am the last one left on my side of the family, & my husbands side is hugh, lol. But I am also thankful for life, as I almost lost it due to a back surgery gone wrong, lets just say in short after 2 mos. in ICU, I am confined to home 24/7, having moved from a home in the mtns.(Morton, Wa.) for 25 yrs., to a place in the city(Longview, Wa.)where to walk it has to be small enough to have something to hold onto, have no friends, & these walls are all you have, but I feel so wonderful as I have a loving hubby of 33 yrs. , a son with 2 great girls, & wonderful wife(wished lived close enough to see), & another grand-daughter in Conn.(lost her dad in '94-& I miss terribly).
    I look at life this way- that there are always people in this world that are a lot worse off than I am. So home-bound isn't so bad, I am alive.
    Hugs to all, & a blessed holiday ,

I am had one of those weeks, and it seemed that each morning I only had time to check your blog out and see what fantastic things that you have come up with.

I am most thankful for my family. It took Jerry and me over 4 years to become prenant with our son then God decided that he needed his sister, so the day after his 1st Birthday Madison was given to us.

I am sorry to go on, but I just could not be any luckier when it comes to want God gave us when we were sure that it was not ment to happen. Have a wonderful Sunday and drive careful, Lisa g

  151. Hello Suzanne!
    I am in awe of your Christmas morning Tilda. She is my very favourite and she is on her way to me in the mail. The way you have coloured her dress is so beautiful. It looks like satin. I love the cream around her and the navy circle.
    I have so much to thank God for this last year. I had just got over having a double mastectomy with breast cancer when my DH got bowel cancer. He has been having treatment all year and has now been told their is no more cancer in his body. We are believing that it won't return. God is so faithful.We make the most of every day.
    I started a blog this year and it has been such a joy to me. The ladies are such a blessing with their wonderful creations.
    There are always things to be thankful for. We just need to keep our eyes open. Have a wonderful blessed Christmas Suzanne.
    Hugs Marion

    I'm most thankful for my family. I'm 50 & disabled & I have to depend on them way to much. They never complain & always go above & beyond for me. They even let me know when they see great sales on rubber or paper products...now that's amazing since neither of my girls have time for crafting!

What am I most thankful for, mm first my immediate family have been fairly healthly this year and secondly for my crafting family that just keeps extending, just so love visiting as many blogs as possible, leaving a few words and gaining so much inspiration from them all, it is just so wonderful to be in touch with so many people around the world, whom all have many things in common. So miss the snow hope you manage to get out and buy some food, I am sure hubby isn't too cold shovelling snow. Wishing you and yours all the best for 2010, take care AnnetteX:)

  166. I was lucky enough to find my hubby just a bit over a year ago. We've had a hard year medically; I had to have surgery in March and DH had a 6 way heart bypass in November. We have both made it through and health is improving. I am very greatful for my new family and our continued good health. Everything else is just a bonus.

  171. This has been a soap box year for us but in everything I can find a blessing from above. In January my husband lost his job after 20 years. We are 3 years from retiring. He did find work in February. This summer I had a couple of surgery's and they came out fine (nothing real serious). In August my 92 year old mother got sick and we lost her the 29 of Sept. Also in Sept. our daughters husband asked her for a divorce and then in Nov. her son developed kidney problems and now is on the list for a transplant. Also right after Thanksgiving, my husband got very sick and was in ICU with pnemonia. He is now much better and we were able to send the oxygen back to the company that brought it. So as unbelievable as this sounds it is the absolute truth. So I think the fact that we can see the blessings would be what I am most thankful for. If I couldn't I could be very bitter. Merry Christmas! 2010 HAS to be better. So much for just plugging along all these years! LOL

    I am also thankful for a wonderful and supportive husband, family, and friends.

  173. I am thankful this season for the "Reason for the Season". Without Jesus Christ, I would have nothing to be thankful for.

  174. I would like an opportunity for the goodies you are giving away. My comment is as follows:
    I am thankful for so many things…God for salvation, my country for its freedoms, my parents for all their moral values they taught me, my children who have given me memories I will always treasure, and for my husband who is a true friend and treats me with respect, love and like a queen.

  175. Merry Christmas Suzanne,

    I am so very thankful for my husband. He has been my rock on which I can hold onto during the good and the bad (sickness). I thank the Lord everyday for him as he is my everything and I love him so very much. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary this year and it seems just like yesterday that we were married.

  176. Another gorgeous card! I am most thankful for my family! My husband has health issues but are minor compared to what some go through and I am grateful for that.

  177. Although I hardly comment, I love your blog and stalk it every day, hehe.

    Its ironic how I'm thankful for something that causes me to be in pain every day of my life, but I am.

    I was raised by my grandmother and this past June she lost a battle that she has been fighting for almost 20 years - cancer.

    And although I miss her like crazy, and I wish that she was here with me...I'm thankful to God that she is not suffering anymore and that she's looking after me from heaven.

    I'm also thankful for my family, because they are the strenght that keeps me going.

    Happy Season, Suzanne! Love everything you do.

  178. Thanks for this candy! I love to see what beautiful creations you have made to dazzle us!
    I am most grateful this year for a Lord God who loves me unconditionally and with a love unimaginable to me. I am so grateful that he listens to and responds to my prayers. I've had many prayers answered - in just the last few months...it amazes me and humbles me. I am truly thankful for what makes this season possible...Christ!
    Hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

  181. Merry Christmas! I am most thankful that my boys are 5 and 6 years old this year and are understanding what Christmas is about. They attend catholic school and the Christmas story is incorporated into the curriculum. But they are also old enough to really help with decorating and baking and wrapping!! :) I'm also thankful we haven't had any snow, besides a dusting, here in Canada yet!!

  187. Love your gorgeous card! :)

    I'm most grateful that my son is happily married... for 3 days now. The wedding was wonderful. I'm also grateful that my daughter (who is terminally ill) was able to attend her older brother's wedding. She was a bride's maid and rolled (in her wheelchair) down the isle being pushed by a groomsman whom she has a little crush on. What a marvelous night! Now it's time to start thinking about Christmas! hehe! I'm so grateful that my daughter is stable and can spend some special time with family that came into town. :)

  189. I am most thankful for my health and the health of my family. I went through a terrible time with depression right after my mom died and it held me captive for nearly 5 years. Thanks to a wonderful family, I got the help I needed and I'm so much better and able to be the mom and wife I'm supposed to be. L. Zurek lczurek@comcast.net
