Good morning everyone. I know that it is not Christmas just yet, and I won't be skipping the Thanksgiving cards. I just had to create these two cards this week. They both wanted to get out....The song by Bing Crosby- Mele Kalikimaka has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl...A couple of years ago I put it on my cell for my Christmas ring tone...At that time my Daughter(who is always singing) decided to show me how well she new the words to this, every time she would sing it the words came out even funnier than the last..It just made me smile every time she would try sooooo hard to get it out..This brings me back to this card. The other day out of the blue she says to me that she finally has this song down, and when she began to sing it again the words just got so messed up...What can I say, I tried to sing it with her to help and by the time we were done I could not even sing it right.... Ok, stay with me now....I have met this really nice lady that lives in Hawaii and she is always encouraging me with my blog and all of that so I get it into my head that I just have to make her a Christmas card that reflects how much I appreciate her and my love for this awesome song..So without another paragraph to drive you all buggy here is my card. Kris, I hope you like it...Could you please email me your address so I can actually send it to you? Hugs, Lisa G
