Happy Holidays!

OK, so I posted a few fall, now lets jump straight over into Christmas again! I LOVE Christmas! Favorite holiday By far! I love traditions and my husband and I are having so much starting our own traditions! I really see so much of what I did as a child being brought over into our little family! My favorite is reading the Christmas Story on Christmas Eve. I really want to pass down the true meaning of Christmas to my kids!

I need to get going on Christmas cards too! This one is a CAS that would be super easy to "assembly-line-mass-produce"!


Copics for the quick and easy color, a ribbon treatment and of course a silver pearl! Easy peasy!


*A little shout out here to my BFF's!  I am so lucky to have you!  You always have the best most kindest words of encouragment for me when trying new things or just when I am having a bad day!  When people can be so discouraging....I am lucky to have you cancel all of that out!  Thanks for the phone calls and emails!  Love you girls!  You know who you are!  :)

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a great day!

  2. Simple and clean, yet with a fun twist. As always Laurie, you are on top of your game!
    Aren't BFFs the best?!

  3. LOVE THE RIBBON!!! You know how to do some CAS girly girl!!! This is just perfect~~ I find that we have been merging with us both bringing over stuff from our childhood and the one thing we started new is the the Standing Rib Roast with all the goodies that go with it. I have to say I made the greatest Christmas song book last year and we sit at the table and sing before we light the new candle during Advent.

  4. Love the CAS style you choose for this card. The ribbon treatment is perfect.

  5. CAS, for sure, but OH so cute. Love the texture on the green piece and the ribbon looks great done fancy like that. :)
