One of our traditions is that the little ones get new jammies on Christmas Eve. My parents started this when my children were little and I have carried on the tradition with my grandchildren.
Here is a picture under the Christmas tree in their new jammies.

A Stampin' Up! demonstrator that I have discovered this year and truly admire her work is Ann Schach at The Stampin' Schach. Her style is vintage and the cards that Ann produces are exquisite. Ann also has a number of tutorials on her site, one which is to tie a bow and I have found that so useful, although I have to watch the tutorial every time I want to tie a bow because I can't remember if it over or under the loop. Oh well, some day I will get it in my head. Ann is also a designer at the Pals Paper Art and I used the sketch this week as my inspiration for my card
Stamps: Welcome Christmas (MDS), Teeny Tiny Wishes (w-115370 - $45.95 p 157 IB&C), Sleigh Bells Ring (retired)

To get the shadow image, the stamp was rotated and reversed and the opacity was set at about 20 and the image printed on Shimmer White card stock.
The hills were masked and the trees from the Sleigh Bells Ring stamped above the hills with Crumb Cake ink and the area sponged using a Sponge dabber and Crumb Cake ink.
2-way Glue was applied to the crest of the hills and Dazzling Diamonds applied.
All layers on the card were sponged using Crumb Cake ink and a sponge.
