Be Jolly {for Jonah}



Happy Monday my friends. I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend with lots of family time.  We had an awesome time with our family.  Unfortunately, Pat's mom was ill all weekend.  I feel so bad that she wasn't feeling up to getting together with all of us.  I'll pop back tomorrow with a few pictures for the weekend.  I'm popping in today with a card for the current Festive Friday challenge. This the last challenge of the year and you can pick any of your favorite challenges from the prior year. I decided to play along with the whimsical theme. This card will be going to Jonah.  Please pop on over to Susan's blog and you can find out more about an amazing card drive for a very sweet little boy.

Before I go, I thought I'd also share a before and after picture of Jonathon and his friends from this year and last year.  You can see how much he's grown in a year...he's now a bit taller than his friend Aidan and last year he was several inches shorter.  We'll be heading out shopping this week again as he's outgrown his jeans from the beginning of the school year already!

Cute card, Lynn! I'm sure Jonah will love it. I'm just about to blog my card for Jonah, too!

What a difference a year makes. Your Jonathon is growing like my eldest daughter. They suddenly change right before our eyes!

They grow so fast, don't they?! I blinked, or so it felt like, and now I've got more grankids than kids! Life is good. Love your chubby little snowman card. He's a jolly fellow in his own right! The washi is the perfect finishing touch too. Great card, Lynn. Bev
