Getting Ready for Christmas ...

Hi Friends!  Hope you are all well!  :)

Me, I've had a very busy week with lots of appointments, and have managed to catch the strep throat that my hubby and son had.  And when I gave Bodhi his vitamin today, he says, "Mommy!  Oh no!  You touched my vitamin!  You're gonna get me sick!"  *Hands went straight to my hips* .. and I said, "Uhhhh -yea.  WHO got me sick in the first place?!"  *giggles & realization on his end* and then, "Ohhhhh Mommy, NOT me."  LOL!!!  :)

So I've had a play with this DARLING Lili of the Valley "Hanging the Stockings" stamp.  I love the way she's tippie toeing on a present to reach wayyy on up there and hang the stockings .. hehe!  You almost wanna reach in there and help lift her up to reach that nail don't ya?  So CUTE she is!!!

Papers: MME
Medium:  Distress Inks

I'd also like to enter this into:
Simon Says Stamp:  Anything Goes

Also, did you get your fill in for the newest sweet Babies and Animals release over at Lili of the Valley?  They are just SO precious aren't they?!!!  sigh .. totally LOVE them!!!  The LOTV webstore will be closed from Dec.12th and reopen Jan.4th. so you may want to think about getting an order in soon if you haven't done so already.  :)

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

Hi Elise,

Totally gorgeous!!! Love your colourcombo and the story about your son Bodhi, ha, ha. He sounds so sweet! :-)
And you used an adorable image (again, ha, ha).

You always have such a beautiful creation to share!! This image is darling!! I love it! HUGS :)

Louise said...

Hi sweetest Elise! ❤
I'm so saddened to read you're feeling sick! :( Hopefully it will go away - pronto! Bodhi is just the cutest! When I read about him here it always fascinates me how alike they seem! Him and Signe shares the same thoughts and sayings and this although all of those miles in between them! I guess a five year old, is a five year old is a well ;)

This is soooo beautiful sweetie! I LOVE the amazingly beautiful coloring and the always STUNNING flowers! The LOTV stamps really comes to life in the most gorge way in here with you :) You're so talented! ❤❤❤

Lots of love!
