Snow Kitten

Hello my friends!  Christmas!  Only 3 days away.  I hope you're ready. I'm almost. I still have gifts to wrap but I'll save that until my usual Christmas Eve. I'll be heading over to my daughter's house on Christmas morning to celebrate with them. It will be interesting this year. We'll have kind of a double meal. My grand daughter is vegetarian so even though my daughter will be cooking turkey breast, there will only be 3 of us eating it. My son-in-law is having hernia surgery I think on Tuesday so he'll be only having a liquid diet. Why, you say? It's one of those insurance things. Had to schedule it before the end of the year. Prayers for his speedy recovery will be appreciated.

Well, on to my card. My life has been kind of topsy turvy since Thanksgiving and my brother-in-law's funeral. Kind of threw me off kilter with what I was supposed to accomplish. I did make this card some time ago for Creative Knockouts Design Team only I completely forgot to not only put it on the DT blog, but never put it on my own blog.  :(  :(  I have NEVER forgotten to post a card before. As I said, my life has been pretty crazy for the last month. Anyway, I've been forgiven for not getting it posted, but I did want to show it off after all my hard work.

  4. Sending you hugs! I am so sorry you're going through a difficult time. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous creation.

  5. Lately my internet has been in and out, in and out every night when I'm trying to visit, so I hope it stays long enough to save my comment this time. I wanted to tell you how darling this image looks all prettied up with the Liquid Pearls you added. Great use of the space, and I love the poinsettia. I still have a couple of presents to wrap and grocery shopping to do, and then maybe I can relax a little bit. Maybe next year it won't all seem like such a chore. I hope you have a lovely Christmas. It seems there is always a little sorrow mixed in with the joy in the Christmas season.
