It's nearly "Holly"day time.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and that means Christmas isn't far behind.

I just have to share a story that happened yesterday. I came home from work at noon because I really didn't feel well (and that's pretty usual for me). My dd skyped us last night and my husband was talking to our grandsons when the oldest asked, "Where's Gramma?" "She doesn't feel good", dh replied and turned the laptop toward me as I'm laying on the couch feeling really lousy. My sweet 4 year old grandson decided he would sing me a song to make me feel better. He sang I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus (or at least the first two or three lines). It must be something new he's learning at pre-school because I had never heard him sing that one before! If there was anything that could make me feel better, that was definitely it! (I went back to work today.)

And now for my card. I've always been a little fearful of coloring the Moody girls from Paper Makeup Stamps but I decided to give it a try since I received Moody for Holly (found here) for my birthday. She just seemed to fit the color challenge this week at JUGS. I colored her with copics and framed her with a cut-out using the inverted scalloped circle nestie. My red dp is My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary collection. The sentiment is also from Paper Makeup Stamps.

Hope everyone finds Christmas in their heart this holiday season.
