Terry Oulboub said... get to go Christmas shopping and you're not in the mood? Can I go instead? I love to shop! :) Just kidding. Awww...I hope you feel better, Donna. Look at your card - seeing that cute little bear really makes me merry and happy Christmas is coming... :D I'm like a kid, I guess. This card really shines the eason, Donna. It is so incredibly beautiful! The papers really work so well and I love how you incorporated the dots on the lace - such an ingenious addition. Your brads are perfectly aligned - how'd you do that? I really love your cards - they are always just so perfect, you know...:D I hope you have a wonderful Friday!!
