They followed their hearts...

they followed that star
this Christmas
let me be that wise...

Oh how I love "This Christmas" sung by Reba McEntire... it's got a great message and if I'm alone I totally belt out the last line, "Keep that faith, be that wise, feel that love...This Christmas" while I'm singing along, LOL!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope this week was good to you and that the weekend is even better. :)
I've got work again but I'm thinkin' that ol' Christmas spirit must be in the air because this past week has been really good and I don't mind making the trek back in at all. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that things stay this way for a while.

My card today is pretty simple, design wise, because I spent most of my time coloring up this image. It's the Three Wee Kings from Lili of the Valley and I really can't get enough of these kid's Christmas pageant looking little scenes... so, so cute! Hopefully I'll be able to find time to color up the rest that go with this before Christmas actually gets here.

Alrighty, that's it from me today... huggles!

So cute! It makes me think of that book "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" that I loved as a kid. I have been trying to get my DD to read it but she resists anything I think is cool! Ha! :-)Traci
