What to do on a Sunday?

Sit in front of the fire



My son, Alan, plays the classical piano.  I love to sit and listen to him.
My red-headed daughter, Rachel, isn't far from Kitty.  I think Kitty has seen better days!
Sometimes she even sneeks it to school in her backpack.  Sigh! :)

Pink Christmas tree card

My attempt to create a pink Christmas card.  I thought the glitter was white until it dried:(
Not my favorite card but it still turned out ok
Stamp:  Tilda from Magnolia stamps
Paper: Holly Jolly from Paper Studio
Die:  Marianne Tree, Magnolia Fence
Stamp:  McGill snowflake

I thought the trees would look better with snow on them but didn't realize the glitter would go clear on me!  Still, I like the bling factor!:) 

Close up of Tilda.  I added sparkles to the tree and to the fur on her coat and hat.  Can't really see it too well with the camera.
