Christmas All Year Long - March

Woohoo...the First Day of Spring has come and gone and Mother Nature certainly hasn't allowed it to feel like spring around here.  She has definitely allowed it to feel like Christmas and it made it easy to be in the mood for a Christmas card.  It's always fun to take part in the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop.

A quick thank you to both Debbie, the owner of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group and Diana Crick for a great place to pick up these awesome stamps. They sure make it easy to love these stamps. Lastly, a huge thanks to Julie for organizing this blog hop.

Ok, let's get on with this.  If you've come from Peggie's you are on the right track.  Once you are done here you are headed over to Tanja's

A huge thank you to you for stopping by here today!!!

Toonie Thursday

My favorite scrapbook store does a make and take every Thursday.  Most of the time I can't get there to make the card.  However, today my daughter didn't have school so we went.  She loved making the card.  This was the first time that I embossed on Vellum cool!!!
