Blue-eyed Christmas

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!
~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers

Good morning Everyone!
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. I have a bit of a long weekend with Memorial Day on Monday and a vacation day thrown in for good measure. Plan on playing in my craft room. Something I haven't really been able to do for a bit.

I started the weekend off playing in a 72 Flash Challenge with Gerda Steiner Designs. Today I am playing along in the Progressive Freebie Challenge at The Outlawz.

Our image this month is from Ppinky Dolls. Isn't she adorable?

Here is my 5 x 7 card.
Card stock from The Paper Studio and Stampin Up!
Die: "Label Collection" from Stampin Up!
EF:  Snowflakes from "Celebrate Christmas" set by Cuttlebug

Pearls from Stampin Up!

Snowflake punch from EK Success

I'm pretty happy as I have another Christmas card done and done! LOL
Thanks for stopping by!

Little Elephant

“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”
~ Groucho Marx
