Hey, blog friends!!!

Are you getting ready for Christmas????  I'm feeling a little slow this year.  It could be there's NO SNOW in Maine!!!!!  Unbelievable!!! I look out my window and see green grass and I can't get into the feeling of Christmas.  Then I look at the calendar and think, "I better get in gear, with or without snow!". 

There's a new CAS challenge at Outlawz Challenges and it's the all time favorite challenge....ANYTHING GOES! 

I've been making Christmas cards (with the helpful sound effects of Christmas music played on my iPod.) and so I've added this card to the lineup for the challenge. 

I love this stamp (Christmas Joy) from Sweet'n Sassy Stamps.  My grandmother loved cardinals and always said when we saw one after she was gone, it meant she was there with us.  A year ago, my mother passed away and while I was mourning her, I looked out my window and there appeared three cardinals flying together and they stopped and perched on a tree right in front of my window.  I knew it was my mother, and her parents telling me they were all together now and could be at peace.   They appeared together and they flew off together.  Cardinals hold special meaning for me. 

I colored this using Copic Markers.  The dies I used for the frame are MFT In&Out Diag Stitched Rectangles and Pinked Die from Avery Elle

Come on over to the CAS challenge and bring your "anything goes" entry.  There's some great prizes to win too. 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week.
