The Joys of the Season!

Hello everyone
Happy first Day of Winter!
Yes, I know,
for some of us it felt like winter for quiet a while.
But on the up side, now it is official,
just hoping it will be a better one then last year.
Not sure I can make it through another "Arctic vortex".
No fun driving to work on icy roads,
that is if your car even wants to start 
because of subzero temperatures:(

The first day of winter also means you only have
"3 Shopping Days Left" to Christmas!
Crunch time!
So glad I took a few days off to finish up 
my shopping, cleaning, baking, wrapping and
maybe, just maybe get some R&R in.

My Christmas Cards were mailed a while back
and all arrived at their destinations.
So with no further delay,
proudly presenting our 
"Joy of the Season"
Christmas card. 
I decided to keep it simple this year.
Just a little splash of color. 
 Stamp is "Joy Collage" from Hampton Art.
 One of my handmade crocheted flowers.
Pine branch is a die cut. 
 I hope this card brought as much joy 
to the recipients as for me making them.

Our smallest friends received...
 ... a Gingerbread House treat bag 
filled with lots of Christmas goodies this year.
Gingerbread House die is from Sizzix.
I have to admit I love getting Cards
as much as I love making them
and it does not matter they are handmade or store bought,
receiving a card means something special to me.
For years I kept the tradition of displaying them in our 
hallway, carefully hung with clothespins, 
for everyone to admire.

Thank you so much for taking time
and stopping in!
I would like to wish you and your families
all the Joys of the Season
a very Merry Christmas!
