Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

To all of my Readers and Visitors, have the merriest of Christmases. I hope that you have the Peace of the Risen Lord. As our family celebrates our Savior during this time of year, I pray for those of you who are hurting, lost, or struggling. May you know the love of Christ and may you find comfort in His arms. If you already have the Joy of Christ, then do your best to pass it on!

This card is my favorite of all the cards I made this year. It's vintage and whimsical and soft all at the same time. I did not mail very many cards this year, so if you did not get one, just know that I have plans to make my 2012 cards early! {wink}

Besides my Faith, my biggest blessings are my marriage (going on 25 years!) and my children. Here is a photo of my kids - Jonah age 11, Laura age 16, and Nathan age 20. I took this when we were visiting San Diego Harbor, which is about a 40 minute drive down the coast. We ended up going on the USS Midway tour and the kids are standing on the upper deck of the ship. You can see Coronado Bridge in the background.

Well, folks...have a lovely holiday. I'll see you back here on Monday with a Blog Hop! You won't want to miss this one!
