A Week Today and It's Over

Hi Everyone:  How many of us are still rushing around trying to get that last present bought and wrapped, the last minute baking and of course, then there is Christmas Dinner and all the preparation and cooking that goes into that.  But, you know, the best parts are the family and friends that you are in touch with and remembering why we celebrate Christmas.  My best part is all the activities that go on before the big day.  What's your best part?

The card for today is Sarah's birthday card and it just had to be done in purple and pink, because, and I quote, "those are my favourite colours, you know"!

Oh to be 4 and flipping around in my Disney Princesses and Fairies dress up. 

Stamps: Beary Best Friends (w-118052 $22.95, p 85 IB&C)

So that is it for today and until next time...


  1. Oh to be 4 again because that's who the magic of Christmas is for.
    For me there is a quiet moment often late on Christmas Day when I usually take myself outside and enjoy the tranquillity and incredible beauty that surrounds me. I celebrate all the small creatures that share our home and really think about those I am deeply missing too!
    That's the time of Christmas Day that I love the best.

  2. Ah, so cute! Sarah will be so happy when she receives it.

  3. LOVE this card. I really love the 4's teetering everywhere .... how cute.
    BOTH my granddaughters (5 & 8) LOVE to tell me their favorite colors are Pink & Purple. Although the older is starting to branch out.... Must be a little girl thing

  4. Love the little treat holder and this adorable image!

  5. Oh how sweet! And you can't beat pink and purple at any age!

  6. So many projects and ideas . . . card is very, very cute. You are the queen of cross stitching and do beautiful work - these two stockings will be well loved. Dinah

  7. Oh Karen what a cute card! I love the little candy pop out! I am sure Sarah will love it!

    Warm Wishes

  8. Karen this is so sweet. Great card.
