Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme

TodaysMama  and GameStop are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you.

Check this out, you will get one of each, plus $1000 gift card......YES ALL THREE:

1. What is your holiday wish for your family?
For me personally, I am wishing for all of us to get together and remember the true reason of the season, Jesus.  And those that do not know why he was born or realize it, that they do so that we can all be in Heaven together.  And that we just be happy, healthy and a willingness to help others.

2. What is your Christmas morning tradition? We get up, make breakfast, enjoy the morning then open presents.  I want us to enjoy the time together!

3. If you could ask Santa for one, completely decadent wish for yourself, what would it be? Oh wow, I would love to go to Italy, a two week trip, not month, i love my, and a week is just too short.

4. How do you make the holidays special without spending any money? Reading stories, spending time with family and friends, and new friends.  Watching movies, like It's a Wonderful Life!

5. What games did you play with your family growing up? ok, going to date myself...Atari's Pac Man...loved that

6. What holiday tradition have you carried on from your own childhood? Sadly, it was only my dad, brother and me.  He was a man's, so we didnt really have tradtions, except for opening one gift on Christmas Eve.  And I still do that today, but we dont pick out our won gift, someone else dose.

7. Where would you go for a Christmas-away-from-home trip? oh I know exactly where I would go, England. It just says Christmas to me...a cottage in the country, snowing outside and a fireplace with a fire, and a fresh christmas tree in the sitting room...Yep thats where!

8. Check out GameStop  and tell us, what are the three top items on your GameStop Wish List this year? 
Wii Fit Plus, Zumba Fitness, Wii Sports 8-in-1 Sports Pack

Oh No Mono...Actually Monochromatic that is! my title.  I remember in school, way back when, when someone had mono, we referred to is as the "kissing" disease.  Well this card has nothing to with mono, in that since, but monochromatic.  The definition for monochromatic is: paintings, drawings, design, or photographs in one color or shades of one color.  I choose to use blue for an inspiration challange.

Here is my inspiration for the EtsyInspired Challenge.  It comes from the Octavia and Brown shop on Etsy.

And here is my card. On the glass container, it looks like there is a flower at the bottom so I added a flower to my card.

Card Recipe:
Paper, Ink, Ribbon, - CTMH colors - Heavenly Blue, Dutch Blue, Crystal Blue, Indian Corn Blue
Stamp Sets - CTMH, background stamp - Floral Elements, Sentiment - From Me to You
Border Punch - EK Success
Flowers - Makin Memories
