Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

Wishing You All A Very Merry And Blessed Christmas Holiday, Hanukah, Etc.!

Hello, everyone!  I hope all's well!  It's been such a pleasure visiting with those of you I've gotten to so far and although I still have more of you to get to, I did want to make certain I covered those that I am unable to reach by leaving a comment here.  I have so very much enjoyed spending this year with you, and very much look forward to all we share in 2012!!!

Although I haven't been around lately as much as I would have liked, I have no complaints!  Despite any/everything, God has been good to me and I have still been so blessed!  My blessings include having you as the dearest circle of family-friends that anyone could ask and/or hope for.  I do hope you holiday season will be as fulfilling and loving as mine has been.

Before I leave to enjoy my family, I thought I'd like to share with you a few cards I had the opportunity to get done this week.  The first three (3) cards have images I used from the Santa's Village cart:

And here are a few more:

Being I was so late in getting a start of making my cards this year, now I can only hope they reach their destinations before the new year!

I hope you like my cards, and I'll be back on Monday with a giveaway -- hope you join me!!!

Again, have a very wonderful holiday...

Love you all, hugs, and I'll be seeing you!

Oh Audrey, everything is just GORGEOUS! I love every single bit of it! So glad that you are enjoying Santa's Village. I sure have had fun with it this year. I hope to keep it out and get a jump start on next year's cards. I sure didn't know I would make this many this year, but sure had fun! I think it has caught up to us all and we have been very behind on our visits too. Between schedules and internet problems in our area, it's been a real challenge, but hopefully it is leveling off and things will cool back down a bit. I have been missing all of my crafty friends and my craft room. Merry Christmas! Hope it was wonderful! We successfully added about 20 pounds each to 16 people at our house today, so it's a good year! Hee! Hee! Big Bug Hugs!

Simply spectacular cards. EAch one is more beautiful than the next.
I cannot believe how much catching up I had to do. You were so busy. I feel like such a slacker.
I have got to get crafting.
I do have some Christmas minis I did that I did not get pics of or post. Maybe that is next.
Not sure if you knew I was away in Florida caring for my mother who had surgery & I just got back a few days ago. I had set my blog to pre-post so my content kept coming in but I had no internet access while gone.
It feels good to get back to some normalcy.
Have enjoyed catching up.
You are truly something special!
Love you mama!
