We Wish You A Merry Christmas,

a very early one  indeed...
Hi guys.
      I know that I used to take pictures of our loony kitty cats and share them with you all, but I spent half of my afternoon yesterday making what I thought would be a really simple card.  lol......  What can I say, I just could not get this card to do what I had in my mind to do.  I wanted to use some of this beautiful paper from MME called Holly Jolly.  I just thought it was so pretty and I had my new Holiday Anya.  Again,  she is just so perfect and reminds me so much of Holiday Barbie that I set out to make this the 'Perfect' Christmas card.  Plus I wanted to try out some new skin combos with my Copcis. But....OMWord, as you can see it is far far far from being the perfect card let alone one that I would send to anyone,  lol..  I did finish it,  but I was going to just put it in a drawer when both the M&Ms and Jerry insisted that I post it on my blog. 

     So,  here it is.  Not the worst, but by no means a good one,.  On a Sunday that I hope not too many people will see as I really am just  not happy with any part of my finished card, 
      I will quit complaining now and tell you the fun part of my day.  We were lucky enough to go on our walk and be back just before the temperature dropped about 5 degrees and started to rain.  I thought it was cool enough when we did walk, but boy or boy did it get cold right before the rain.  I would have sworn it was going to snow.  I guess we'll see what tomorrow brings,. I am hoping that the snow holds out just a little longer as I am really happy to still get to walk outside at the moment. 
     Just so that you don't have to suffer too much over my 'beautiful' card I will share this picture of Boo from Friday morning.  She was playing in Mitchell's room early in the morning and she knocked over his little carrier that he puts his books in to protect them from everything. (Yes, he is obsessive over his books.) So he had his books on his end table and Boo decided that this would be the perfect time to cuddle up in his bag.  She is so silly and we just love having her.

I don't think Boo liked my flash at this point..  lol
      Ok guys, I am going to go see if I have any talent what so ever today and try to get some of my design team cards done for the week.  Have a wonderful Sunday and I will talk at you all tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

You are such a silly goose, I don't see anything wrong with this super cute card and you can send it to me, I love it!
We actually had a fairly warm day today, got up to 46 and no rain at all! I'm hoping it stays like this for awhile!

I know what it feels like to not like a card but I think this is sweet! I love the glitter on her dress and that paper is beautiful. Maybe you just need a nap, that is what my husband always tells me!
