The traditions of the season...

Good morning!

There are so many adorable critters in the Home for the Holidays collection at Purple Onion Designs. And while I couldn't possibly choose a favorite, the darling grandma and grandpa bunnies, Eddie and Ethel, certainly tug at my heart strings. I miss my grandparents more around the holidays but I'm lucky to have a treasure trove of memories with them associated around activities this time of year which makes them feel closer. So the whole time I was coloring this card I was thinking about them, making this one extra special. The background was created using three different stamps, the Holiday House, Snow Day Hill and Melvin, the little snowman. I can remember leaving all sorts of snowmen in my grandparent's yards when we would get a good snow storm. :)

Ok then, time for me to go get busy. Take care and see ya in 24!
