Merry Christmas from Me to You!

What a glorious feeling it is to have everything in place ready for the big day!  I've spent the last few hours just enjoying myself in my craft area. I decided that it was time to venture into the 5x7 size cards instead of my usual 4.25 x 5.5. I really enjoyed having the extra space for my creations!

This first card features an adorable Golden Retriever.  Ours went over the Rainbow Bridge almost four years ago, and I still miss him.  This pup certainly isn't Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, but he does a really good imitation.  The sleigh is a modern version of Santa's ... it's almost time for him to take off!

I had a little paper that mentioned cocoa, and that's where this started.  Where it ended up, though, is entirely different.  That snowman looks like he is having a blast, doesn't he?  I love using papers that coordinate, and I pulled out all of the stops to add more decorations to the card.  I think the recipient will love it!

So, from my crafty place in the sun to you and yours, may you have a joyous and blessed Christmas.



  1. Merry Christmas to you, too!!!!! Love the dog card the most-est.


  2. Fantastic cards Dodie! The Golden Retriever looks beautiful and I love the lace trimming! The second card is wonderful too! So fun and festive! Never met a snowman I didn't love :) Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
