Celebrate your Traditions!


For 8 years I had an only child a darling boy that I still adore. Christmas meant boy themed decorations. My tree had Power Rangers, Batman, Superman, every action hero you could ever think a boy wanted. For 13 years it has grown and changed, Star Wars, Fairly Odd Parents, Sponge Bob and so forth. The only thing that remains a constant are the little soldiers...my nutcracker collection that started on his first Christmas. This Sizzix die was CALLING my name. I decided to do another card just because you need to celebrate your traditions, keep close what is in your heart, one day my teenager will be a fully grown man with a family of his own and God knows how many nutcracker I will have collected by then...all for his new little family to keep.
