the wonder of Christmas...

Hello my friends.
     I sure hope that everyone is feeling the Christmas Spirit.  I am so sorry for being MIA these last few days.  I have been so busy between work, making Christmas socks for work and getting the car fixed along with a new boyfriend for Madison that I don't think I have even sat down at my desk since last weekend.  :O)
     So, even though I haven't had a moment to rest I did manage to make a few cards last weekend that I really wanted to share with everyone before Christmas was over.  You might have guessed that I have still been a bit addicted to my poinsettia dies as well as heat embossing.  With that being said I wanted to make a second card out of my dies and go with a more dusty rose color flower.  I did just that and I have to say that I really love how this card came out.  It isn't quite as elegant looking as my white flowered card, more like a  Country Christmas feel to it.  I love this feeling.   It really reminds me of the movie "The Family Stone" . Not sure what it is about that movie, but I just love it and I love how the family unit in the movie just all seem to have  each others' backs no matter what.  For me I think that is what family should be like.  lol...  I know, I tend to go on an on and get very sentimental this time of year.  Sorry, you will only have to endear this side of my for a couple more weeks !!!?... I don't know, but I am sure that if you've seen it and liked it, you know what I am talking about.
     Anyway, if your not too busy these next three days, I .do have a couple more cards to share and a little bit of nostalgia to share with you come Christmas Morning.  Until then, I hope you all have a Safe and Blessed Christmas.
     Talk at you tomorrow. Merry Christmas!
Hugs, Lisa G

I used my VersaMarker for the squiggly lines as I had a little ink come off of my block when I stamped the
sentiment.  I like how it turned out as you wouldn't know it happened if I hadn't told you.  :O)

This is just too pretty! (BTW, I love The Family Stone - one of my favorite Christmas movies - I laugh every time.) Thank heavens my Maggie isn't boy crazy - she is in the "it's awkward that a boy likes me" stage. All I can say is Good Luck! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
