VMAA challenge night

I know this card needs some 'splaining, Lucy! Last night was the 3rd edition of the VMAA. For anyone who doesn't know, it is the Virtual Meeting of the A Muse Addicts. It is a fun night of stamping for everyone who participates which consists of 4 challenges and 1 bonus challenge. Anyway, the fourth challenge was to make a card that shows a memory of your Christmas' as a child. In our family, on Christmas Eve, before the kids got up, my Dad would set a "trap" for us. He would use lots of empty boxes and string in our staircase to build a trap. When we tried to sneak down to see what Santa brought, we would set off a lot of noise as the boxes tumbled down the stairs. It was always great fun for us kids to see if we could make it through the trap without making noise. I don't think we ever did make it to the tree without waking our parents, or did we???

Dawn, what a wonderful memory. Knowing your dad, I think he had as much, if not more fun that you kids did! Merry Christmas! Great card too!
