Lindsey did surprise me with this awesome gift. It is a copy of our blog in book form! How cool is that?!
It's not complete yet, but we're going to get it in sections.
She ordered it from Cutest Blog on the Block and they do a really nice job!
It's scary to think that your blog could disappear and this is a great way to insure that all your work is not lost forever. I really can't wait to get the rest of it.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of my Christmas gifts. I'll show you a few more in the next few weeks.

I thought I would share more photos with you today of my pink Barbie tree!
I love collecting Hallmark Barbie ornaments! My Grandmother started collecting the Barbie ornaments that matched the Holiday Barbie each year and I just started to build my collection from there.
I certainly don't have all of them yet but I love them and hope that some day I will be able to go back and buy the special ones that I missed.
If any of you are out doing your day after Christmas shopping then you might stop by your local Hallmark store and see what they have left! This year's collection featured some of my very favorites like a large replica of Barbie's famous open toed heel in glittery pink and small replicas of both Barbie and Ken in their original boxes also available in miniature size.
Luckily, now days I can go to ebay to find more of these beautiful ornaments. Of course I am always on the look out at Flea Markets and Antique stores to find good deals on these beautiful little works of art.

It's such a pretty salt box and I had such fun putting some Sugar Kissed decorations inside.
Cut out all three Santas.
So that you have all three pieces.
Then start with the one that says "Merry Christmas" and punch two holes on right side only about an inch apart.
Now take the one that says "And Best Wishes" and cut holes on both sides.
I hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial! Come back tomorrow for a special Blogaversary post and a giveaway!!!
Well wishes, Twyla and Lindsey

I then took this pink wavy patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly paper line and cut a section of it out to go across the card.
I cut them out in both the song sheet and pink cardstock.
I also took a regular size hole punch and punched a sheet of red cardstock to make 3 circles that will be my holly berries.
I then took a red ink pad and ran it across the edges of my leaves.
I then cut a sheet of red patterned paper 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 as my background. I then glued the bingo card to that and then glued my piece of pink paper to the middle.
I then glued the 3 holly leaves to the bottom corner. Slightly overlapping each one.
I then added the 3 holly berries.
