It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...


Well, I'm feeling a bit better today though me and the Kleenex box are still best friends. I'm thinkin' it might be a perfect day to curl up on the couch with my two furry friends and watch some of my annual Christmas movie favorites. Top of the list today? Probably Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, and Elf.  :)

I recently got the new Winter Wonderland digis from Sugar Nellie and couldn't wait to color them up. First one to get on a card was this sweet On the Wings of Love image. Isn't she just totes adorbs? Totes mcgoats, she's cray cray adorbs! LOL, if you haven't seen the Sprint commercials featuring James Earl Jones and Malcolm McDowell you might not get that last reference... I swear those commercials crack me up every time I see one. 
Anywho, back to the card... I was actually planning on checking out this week's Flutter By challenge to see if I could play along but Danni just posted the sad news about shutting down the challenge. And while I will miss the fantastic challenge that she has lead for all these years I know that Danni will still be a big presence in our crafty bloggin' circle. Thanks for all the fun Danni!  :)

Thanks for stopping by and I'll catch ya on the flip side!

Hi Amy, I sure hope you are feeling a 100% better soon. We seem to have something floating around us all over here, but poor Mitchell is the one that it has knocked off his feet right at the moment. Anyway, I don't know just how much better you are feeling, but I can sure see that no matter what it hasn't effected your ability to make a gorgeous card. I think this little sweetheart is just adorable and I love how you have colored her. She just looks so fun and so ready for Christmas. :O) Stay warm and cozy, I hope that you were able to get your movies in. I am so going to grab my Love Actually tomorrow and allow myself some free time for a just a little bit. lol... Hugs Lisa
