Hi guys!
     Yay, it is finally Friday!  I am so excited to get through today so that all I have to do is work my half day tomorrow and then I am off for a Fantastic Family Christmas Vacation!  Yes, I am going to be on vacation starting Saturday at 1pm all the way through Tuesday January 2nd.  I am so looking forward to spending time with Jerry and the M&Ms.  It's not that I have never taken a vacation, it's just that since the kids started school nine years ago this will be the first time that I have taken any part of their two weeks Christmas Vacation off just to be with them.  :O)   I don't even care if Santa leaves me a lump of coal just as long as I get to spend the time with my family and enjoy the holiday without having to worry about going back to work so soon.  :O) 
     Ok, now that I have bored you all let me get to the real reason you are here this morning.  Today is Friday over at The Greeting Farm -  FFF Challenge blog and as you all know that means Friday Spyday.  Margie was checking out all the talented ladies and she came across this beautiful card that Beate made using non other than little Stella.  Isn't she just adorable?  I love love her color pallette, but I knew I had some of the Doodlebug papers left that Amy sent me, so I had a little fun with it. 

Beate's Beautiful Stella...

       As I had just purchased Amelia last month I just could not resist pulling her out and showing her some ink. This is the Amelia from the Fuzzy Wuzzy O&A set.   I gave her some extra rosy cheeks as she looks like she was busy out playing in the snow just before she was made to come in for the big Christmas party that her parents are having. 
     If you haven't already been over to the Farm Fresh Challenge blog be sure to head on over and give it a go.  You have a whole week to come up with a card, or a project so hopefully your feel like getting crafty after all those card making/scrapbooking goodies that I just know Santa is going to leave in all of your  stockings. 
     Well guys, I still have to work today so I had better get a move on.  I am not too sure as to how much blog time I am going to have this weekend, so I thought that I would wish you all a very Merry Christmas.   I hope you all have a great day spending it with family and friends.
Hugs, Lisa G

I don't know how long it has been since I have left you a comment and I am so sorry. This year has been so busy for me with the kids and I can't believe it is almost over. I am running behind on everything and feel terrible about it. I hope you and your family have a wonderful and Merry Christmas and also a VERY Happy New Year to come. I love this card and Amelia is too cute. I love seeing all your wonderful creations.
