The first Noel...

the angels did say
was to certain poor shepherds
in fields as they lay...

Good morning friends. :)

The internet connection is still a no-go at my place and I am starting to truly feel cut off from the world, LOL! The telephone guy should (fingers crossed) be looking into it today so hopefully it won't be much longer. In the meantime I apologize in advance if I don't respond to emails quickly or if I'm unable to make my blogging rounds as often as I would like. This little hitch thrown in right before the holidays is just not something I expected having to deal with... hope you understand.

I've been busy getting all my last minute Christmas details taken care of and that hasn't been leaving much time even for card making so what I do get done has to be super simple and quick. Luckily I've had a couple of these Lili of the Valley images colored up for awhile so I was able to throw this one together in no time! I kept the layout design very clean and basic and just let the sweet image shine.

Well, thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit and I hope that Christmas to-do list is shrinking... only one more day to go! :)

Amy for something "simple" this is just beautiful! I really love this image and it goes so well with the sheet music. Hope you have a great day and the telephone man makes your day. lol... I hate being without my internet. Madison has been really sick, so I have not had time between work and staying up at night with her to even think about my card making this week. :O) Maybe after the holiday. Hugs, Lisa
