Birthday Treats, Gingerbread tea and a Hard Freeze

The weather has turned cool here in Central Texas. I miss the changing of the seasons the most so when we actually drop below 70 I get excited. It's rare to be this cool so early in the season here but I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth. The weatherman is calling for a hard freeze tonight. I can't wait!

In honor of the cool weather I used some of the new stamps I received today for my birthday from my parents, to create a few Christmas cards. I pulled out my new box of Gingerbread Tea and put on some flannel pajama pants and then put ink to rubber or acrylic in this case.

The last card I made tonight was just for fun because I love these little birds. I have always wanted the peaceful wishes stamp set by Stampin' Up. This set by inkadinkado has the pine branches I love from the peaseful wishes so I think I'm set now.
