You Make My Heart Melt {and I met Tracey!)

This weekend, I was on a Christmas card making role.  I loved the sweet little snowman from Marilyn's card at Muse:  Christmas Visions. For my card, I used a very CAS PaperSmooches snowman and then colored just a touch with my Zig markers.  Very simple, but one more done for the Christmas card stash!  I'm also entering this over at Virginia's View All Things Colored Challenge.

Yesterday, I was so thrilled that Tracey and I got to meet in real life!  She is as much of a sweetheart in person as she is in blog land and we hit it off like we had been friends forever.  Thankfully, it was a gorgeous day out and we sat outside and chatted over lunch in my little town of Loveland.  I wish we had longer, but am so thankful for the time we had together.  Next time, we are most definitely going to need more time together...and to get our hubbies together too. When James dropped Tracey off, I think the guys could have talked for hours too.  I feel so blessed to meet such wonderful friends through blogging.

Thanks for joining us at MCV - love the watercolour snow - I predict a new trend right there! I remember meeting Tracey for the first time at lunch not too long ago (maybe a year and a half ago?) and having that same 'friends forever' feeling! I look forward to meeting you for real some day soon, too!

oh, how wonderful! I knew she was going to the States to see the dh but didn't know it was close to Loveland! I had to giggle with the flip flops I see…we are nearing the end of flip flop weather here although we've been having sunny days too :) What a darling card…I need to get going on Christmas! ox
