This Christmas card ranks right up there in my Top 10 Favorite Christmas Cards of all times.  The message and card are beautiful.  And like many things, a photo doesn't do it justice….you have to see it to appreciate it.Reason for the Season

I uploaded a bunch of card samples with the intention of blogging while we were in North Carolina this past weekend for Denver's soccer tournament.  About that?…yeah…the weather was gorgeous and I sat outside, read a book and hung out with my teenager.  I did think about blogging for about 2 seconds. 

So now I'm back home, and I'll work on a few posts here this week.  I have a few more classes to prep for, my Christmas Collage and my Christmas Giftables classes and then I'm wrapping it up for the year.  It's so hard to imagine that it will soon be 2016.  I've added my class schedule to my website through June so I'm making plans for a good year, the Good Lord willing…stay tuned….

This card was one that we did last week at the "White-Out" class….and wouldn't you know..the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper is on the weekly deal this week!  Whoo Hoo!
