Christmas Magic

Hello Friends!  Hope you are all doing well!  It's the start of another weekend .. and for us it's the beginning of a mini-holiday.  Bodhi starts his Thanksgiving vacation and has the ENTIRE week off from school!  Lucky kid!  lol!  Gosh, when I was in school, we only had 4 days off for Thanksgiving break.  His school gives the WHOLE week off! 

I'm looking forward to it.  Means we can get up a bit later in the mornings, and also .. more cuddle time!!!  For some reason, I'm so into blankets at this time of year.  And I love shopping for one or two more every year.  hehe.  So, I went out and got us a couple more for the living room .. with hanging out on the floor and watching movies in mind.  :)  I know we'll probably be moving furniture around, and laying down layers of blankets to watch movies downstairs .. so it'll be nice and cozy!  :)

Annnnyways ... I've made a Christmas card using Lili of the Valley's darling "Ice Skating" image.  I LOVE them!  Do you know I've never been ice skating?!  Yup!  Never!  I rollerskated, but never ice skated.  I can only imagine what I'd look like if I tried it .. and this beautiful graceful image does not come to mind if I'm in it.  LOL!  :)

Here's my card:

Papers:  MME
Medium:  Distress Inks

Also have you been catching those darling sneak peeks from my wonderful LOTV DT sisters for the next LOTV release?!  Pretty CUTE eh?!!  Yes yes yes!  More to come!!!  :)  Irrisistable!!

Thank you so much for visiting me .. I love it when you do!  I'll see you again soon!

This card says romance all over. The image ( love it ) and the flowers in such soft colors.
Lovely to see that you did use the spellbinder die in the other direction. Don't see that often.
