Friday Flashback: Merry

Welcome to this week's Friday Flashback!  Since yesterday was Thanksgiving, I'm now ready to do more Christmas cards, so expect some Christmas-riffic Flashback posts for the next month.  Today's featured retired stamp set is Merry.  Let's get started!

This was our 2006 Christmas card; if I remember right, the word was stamped with Real Red craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice for some sparkle.

When we lived in North Carolina, I worked at the central office for the local school district, and the man who ran my department loved to wear Christmas ties all through December--he had enough different ones to just about do a different Christmas tie every week day from December first through till Christmas Eve.  So I made this one for him!  (You can tell it's a tie, right?  Right?!)

This was for a sketch challenge...the background is Wild Hearts, which always makes me think of going fabric shopping with my mom when I was a kid.

I did a one-sheet wonder with Simply Circles in red and green and made a slew of different Christmas cards.

I kinda miss Gable Green and Green Galore.  Well, Gumball Green is pretty fantastic, but it's not the same.

Another sketch challenge, and I like purple for Christmas cards.  Ready for the new projects?  I made two scrapbook layouts to complete this week of scrappiness!

The top left picture is not sideways; hubs is laying on the ground while my dad's dog Ginger "attacks" him.

The pictures are from Christmas Eve 2003, just a few months after I married my sweet hubs.  Yay for scrapping 10-year-old pictures!  (I told you I was behind on my scrapping.)

Thanks for stopping by today!  And if you're out taking advantage of Black Friday sales, be careful out there.  People be crazy!
