Hi Everyone - I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.  We sure did - Mom and Max came for a visit.  We had so much fun with them.  I think Max got even more spoiled while he was here - he forgot how to walk.  He was carried everywhere - HA!!!  Needless to say, he's precious!!  Here is a picture that Jacob took of Mamaw and Max during their visit:

Now isn't that the cutest picture of both of them??  Here's another revelation - while Mom was here, we didn't craft the whole time - we played with Jacob and Max!!  HA!!!

Since they left, I made some thank you cards using a free digi from Digital Delights by Louby Loo

  • I used the snowflake card on the Cricut Cartridge A Child's Year.  I cut the card at 5 x 7 size. 
  • I cut the patterned paper to 6 3/4" x 2 3/4". 
  • I then punched with the Martha Stewart Snowflake punch. 
  • I adhered the digi to green cardstock and popped in the center of the card. 
  • I used the negative of the snowflake cutout on the front of the card along with a snowflake embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for all the comments and visits during the past year.  We hope that you will have a Happy New Year and that 2012 brings you peace and happiness.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
