When My Heart Finds Christmas


This will more than likely be my last post until the new year. My life is extremely busy right now and we are bracing for a possible ice storm tonight. Can things get any more stressful? LOL
The title is a play on 2 of my favorite things. I have collected heart ornaments for over 30 yrs. Also my favorite Christmas cd is by Harry Connick, Jr. Love the jazzy sounds he adds to holiday music and when shopping in the stores and one of his songs begins to play, I'm humming along.
This is a Christmas gift that I got to open early - YEA!!!
Stamp - Tilda with heart (Magnolia) sentiment (Studio G)
Paper - Cosmo Cricket (Jolly By Golly) and PTI cs
Ink - Memento and Copics
Misc. - Nestabilities, Kaiser pearl accents, MFT die, stickles, white gel pen

This card is going to a special young man. He is in middle school and for many years he was a student in the Sunday School class I taught. I wanted something fun but didn't need any buttons or bows on it. We are meeting up this weekend for lunch and possibly the movies. Even though I haven't been his SS teacher for 2 yrs. now, we keep in touch.

Paper - SU River Rock / PTI Black cs and MM pp

Entryway Vignette

A second post for today - wow that's really good for me. Today turned out to be a short day (love those). I'm linking up to another Holiday decorating blog - vignettes.

This is my hallway as you enter my house. Since I like to switch things up each year, this year I went with a red/white theme. My favorite candles are featured (oops forgot to take the wrappers off). They are from Pier 1 and each year I go and buy several. It sends the most delicious scent throughout your home! I found these cute mice at Trees 'n Trends. Tons of great ideas if you have one near you.

Here is a close-up shot of my cute little mice! Notice one is holding a heart! I have a serious heart collection in Christmas ornaments. This year I will be adding 2 new beautiful green glass hearts that I found at Macy's.

LOL can you tell who has been playing with the effects options! I went and bought tons more digi images and this elf just screams cuteness. With a strong determination to use all of this paper, maybe 4 more cards and it will be knocked out. The fun bright colors are a nice change. Hope you have a FUN day!
