Under The Mistletoe

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....or at least it is here anyway.  We are getting slammed with our first big snow of the season, and two school snow days under our belts already.  As soon as that calendar hit December, mother nature decided to turn the cooler on and run the snow machine.  I don't complain too much in December, because I do like to have snow for Christmas, but I am the first to admit that once Christmas is over, I am done with snow, and I dread the rest of winter.  After last winter's massive amounts of snow, I am hoping that we get a little bit of a break this year. 
In light of the season, I would like to share a card with you that I made for hubby.  I won this Kenny K image a little while back, and thought it was the perfect image to make hubby's card with this year.  So cute.  I gave it to him already, and yes, he does love it.  I am happy to say that I did get all the handmade cards for Christmas made that I wanted to this year and all to be sent out this week.  What a lot of work it was as many of you know that I started this task in July.  It is so satisfying to see them all done though and lots of happy recipients. 

 
Shiny boots ;)




Thank you for dropping in today and for your comments.  I appreciate you and your time to drop a line.  Stay warm my friends, and have a wonderful day.

Hugs,
