Let it snow ...

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! As you can see, I've changed yesterday's card a little bit.

Merry Christmas ... so far no snow here (maybe that's the reason why I had to make these snowman cards, lol), and temperatures in the 40's (Fahrenheit)/10 gr.Celsius with lots of sunshine!

Hugs, Laura

Happy Birthday Julia & Patrick

Hallo allemaal! Happy Sunday! Ik wil jullie even de birthday card voor mijn zusje Julia en haar man Patrick laten zien. Ze vieren vandaag allebei hun verjaardag, dubbel feest dus en morgen ook nog de verjaardag van Sinterklaas. Ik blijf het bijzonder vinden dat ze op dezelfde dag jarig zijn. Ook de envelop heb ik van een stempel voorzien. Nu even weer een schaaltje pepernoten en gevuld speculaas bij een kopje thee. Ik wens iedereen in Nederland een hele fijne Sinterklaastijd! Hier is in de USA is alles al in Kerststemming. Toch ga ik pas dinsdag de kerstboom optuigen: het gaat een RED-WHITE-AND-BLUE tree worden! Foto volgt binnenkort!

Take care! Hugs, Laura

Hi there! Welcome and thanks for visiting my blog! Yes, we got SNOW this morning when I got up. The first snow of the season, and I have to admit it looked really pretty. Snow means the Holiday Season is here ... ready or not! Today, I feel a little bit like Rudolph the red nose reindeer, still coughing and sneezing, when will it stop? Right now, I need as much energy as possible, I have so much to do!
And here is a sneak peek of my next card:

It's Friday already, that means the weekend is around the corner. Have a great one! Talk to you later!

ENJOY ... it's a beautiful day!

Hi there! Thanks so much for your sweet comments, I love reading them! Today I want to share another Christmas card with you, using this adorable Magnolia image. Despite my coughing and sneezing - yes, the cold season arrived! -, I hope to finish more cards today. It's a beautiful day, the sun is shining. I've got a million projects going right now: still many Christmas cards to do, a couple of b-day cards, a wedding anniversary card, and three 8" x 8" scrapbook albums for my daughter and two of her cheerleader friends. I am so proud of them, their team made it to the State Cheerleading Competition! GO EAGLES!

Take care and wishing you all a wonderful day!

Hugs, Laura
