Happy New Year and Happy Birthday Lexie!

We used to spend New Years day with my Father because it was his birthday. I miss him all the time but especially on New Years Day. My First Great Granddaugher Lexie was born on Jan. 2, just missed Dad's birthday. This card is for her Birthday and I am late mailing it to her. I just finished it last night. Hope she likes it. It is a Hanglar Stanglar image. I know she loves animals.

Wishing you all a safe and Happy New Year!

A warm welcome to my new members. Thanks for following me.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful followers. I would love to thank the two newest followers for visiting me. I have tried to visit your blogs but for some reason Google Chrome won;t let me on one of them. I will try again after Christmas because I love to follow the ones that follow me. I appreciate all of you.

This is just another Christmas Card that I gave one of the Granddaughters. I don't even remember which one I gave it to. I just have too many and it is too hectic this time of year. I'm just so grateful I got all of them a card made. I am hoping all the Grandkids remember that JESUS is the reason for the season. I am so thankful for all my many blessings.

Doing The Hokey Pokey!

This is for our monthly challenge group. Kathy sent us this darling image and she was so fun to color. Thanks Kathy, great choice. I am a little under the weather so not wanting to write a long post.

Hope you are all getting your Christmas shopping finished and the cooking and baking done. I still have 2 batches of candy to make and my house to clean but other than that I am through. I have 2 Dr. appointments next week and babysitting 2 Great Grandsons one day.

For Scott, Debra and Family

This is going to be short and sweet! This is the card I made for my oldest son and his wife. They will be coming to stay a few days for Christmas but I have already mailed the card to them and they should have it by now.

I've got candy making to do so have to get busy.

For My Granddaughter's Secret Sister!

My Granddaughter Megan ask me to make her a gingerbread man card to give to her Secret Sister at her school's Christmas exchange. She had found a gift for her with gingerbread men on it and she loved the card I made her. I found the image online somewhere and don't remember where I got it so will need to look it up so I can give credit to the artist that drew the image.

Thanks to all my followers. I appreciate all of you and the time you take to look at my cards. It is a busy time of year and no one has a lot of spare time. I am just now finding time to go look at some blogs.

Have a great Sunday. I'm off to Church. We are having our Christmas program today and one of my little Great Grandaughters is going to be an Angel in the program. She is so excited.

Merry Christmas Alex!

Here is another Magnolia Snowman and of course it is for one of the Grandkids. I'm going to be finished in a couple of days with my Christmas cards. I hope so anyway. I think this one will be good for one of the guys. For the older ones I slip a gift card inside and that is okay with them. I am thinking this one will be for Alex. He is autistic and loves to get lots of money so for him I stick in 20-$1.00 bills and he loves it. I still shop for the really small ones, actually 8yr on down. The rest are older 12 on up to their 30's. This year for the first time I am excluding gift cards for the ones that have children. It is too much with 17 Grandkids and then the 17 greats plus there are 3 on the way...someday they will all just get cards if they keep having little ones. I do love each and everyone of them.

Have an awesome day.
