Peace, Love & Joy


Yesterday, Marcel had since first wrestling match of the season.  He did really well - one the first match and lost the second by two points.  Pat and I love watching him out there.  It takes so much confidence to be out there by yourself competing.  But...during wrestling matches there is a lot of time in between waiting for your turn.  I took the opportunity to start addressing my Christmas cards.  Then I came home and counted how many more I have to make...a lot!  So yesterday afternoon I spent time making cards.  Today I have two cards.  The first one is for the MUSE Christmas Visions challenge. 


Second up was a card for the normal MUSE challenge and Just Us Girls water coloring card. I think you can see how I was inspired by Michele's fabulous card below.  How about you?  How are those Christmas cards coming along?

  1. Both are beautiful! I love how you refer to it as the 'normal' Muse! Maybe I'll have to think about renaming it! lol! Love the pretty colours behind the snowflakes and the use of Chriss' layout! Thanks for joining us, Lynn!

  8. first, congrats to Marcel! I agree, it takes a lot of courage to be there on your own with no team around you…good for him! You are on a Christmas card roll! I love the traditional and nontraditional versions! Those snowflakes are fun! ox

  13. You're so good... and BRAVE... to hand-make all your Christmas cards! I gave up long ago. Matter of fact, they should be arriving in the mail any day ;). So glad to have an early start on them. Although, I lost my Christmas address list, when my computer crashed, and we haven't been able to get it back. So, I'll have to rely on my hand-written address book, which is lacking. How can technology be such a blessing and such a pain at the same time?!
