*Warmest Wishes!*

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

I hope that you are all having a wonderful few days with family and friends... enjoying the company of those people who mean the most to you.

Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year... so magical and fun.... and worth every headache at the mall and grocery store.

As with last year, Christmas is also a little sad for us... this is our second Christmas without Dad and believe me, he is missed by us all. There are so many little things that I can remember from Christmas' past that remind me of my Dad. But the good news is, the pain isn't as deep nor as strong as it was a year ago. He is remembered with more smiles than tears this year.

This is the last Christmas card I created this year... another using that wonderful snowman image from when the Cal-Gals were over. I used my Blender Pen and some Purely Pomegranate re-inker to create a Purely Pomegranate marker. I added some Stickles to their hats for some sparkle... gotta have some sparkle!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Purely Pomegranate, Garden Green
*Images: High Hopes, Stampin' Up!
*Ink: Pallette Black; Stampin' Write Markers in Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie; Blender Pen and Purely Pomegranate reinker; Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranate Classic Ink
*Tools: Cuttlebug and D'vine Swirl embossing folder; Marvy Mega Circle punch
*Embellishments: Stickles

This will be my last post for a few days.... I want to spend some time with my family.

See you soon!!!

Merry Christmas! This will be the first Christmas without my husband's mom who died unexpectedly in September. It's been a rough holiday season, but your email gives me hope that the pain gets lighter as the year goes by. Thank you!
