Howdy fellow bloggers!  How have you been?  My family and I have been doing pretty well, with the exception of my 18-year-old daughter, who has a case of strep throat...again.  This is the 3rd time she has had it within the past year.  I am hoping at some point in time that she will be able to have her tonsils removed, as they are quite large, and maybe that will alleviate the problem!

Anyhow, I came by today to share with you my latest creation for the Christmas Crafts All Year Round challenge:  Under the Mistletoe, Kisses, Love.

I didn't use mistletoe on my card, but I really do like this Bugaboo image, which is from the Snowman Set 2 digi set.  It really speaks "love" to me!  I used this image on a Christmas card in 2017, where I used mostly red, and made the bird look like a robin.  In 2019, the bird has changed into a bluebird, and the colors switched to blue, green, and purple.  I love both versions!  :)  The sentiment is a mixture of Lawn Fawn (Christmas), and WPLus9 (hugs, and the small heart images).  The patterned paper comes from the 12x12 Northern Lights Recollections paper pad.  I love that pad!!  The purple card stock is from Recollections as well.


12 Months of Christmas Link Up #51:  ATG or optional twist of brads, buttons, bows
CHN Patterned Paper:  ATG using patterned paper
ABC Christmas:  E for embellishments, F for fabric, and G for glitz (Stickles on the snow)

Winter Wonderland:  Fuzzy Wuzzy (snowman's hat) 
Simon Says Wednesday:  Whatever the Weather
CHNC #429:  ATG or option to not use patterned paper
