We need a little Christmas...

right this very minute
it hasn't snowed a single flurry
but Santa, dear, we're in a hurry...

Hello there!
So I know I'm a day late in getting to it but did my fellow Gleeks enjoy the Glee Christmas episode Tuesday night? I thought it was such a fun mix of touching moments and humour with the whole play off the Grinch story and Becky dressed up like Max... too cute. I also really enjoyed the Brittany storyline, she always has great, off-the-wall, one liners and this episode was no exception. In fact, I got such a chuckle from one that I had to use it on my card for today! ;)
When she was discussing letters to Santa with Artie and tells him to remember that "even the smallest envelope is heavy for an elf" something about that seemed perfect for a card. I could just picture tiny elves trying to lug around and sort out all those letters, LOL.

So I altered up Wild Sprouts Vivi from The Greeting Farm by wiping away her present and replacing it with an 'envelope' then computer generated the Glee quote as my sentiment. I also decided to go ahead and enter this in the FFF challenge... let it snow. It had been a long time since I played in a TGF challenge but I recently enjoyed the three blog hop challenges so much that I'm excited to be jumping back into the fun! :)

Okey dokey, I think that's a wrap for the day... chat with ya manana!

Amy I just love this. I think that you should send this to Britney. She would so love her. I really love your happy holiday color too. Great JOB! I agree with you on the episode. I was so going to email you right after... Can you see my big grin? I too just loved Becky as the little reindog. "Their real you know." :O) I also just love how coach Bieste is so sweet and has teamed with Mr. Shue against Sue the Grinch. heehee Hope you have an awesome day. Hugs, Lisa
