Morning all...brrr it's freezing here although we haven't been lucky enough to get any snow...yet! We had a busy weekend putting all the Christmas decorations up...the house is lovely and festive now and I love to see the Christmas lights twinkling on the tree...I absolutely love Christmas and think I'm more excited than the kids!

It's always good to start Mondays with a Cupcake and we have a lovely challenge for you this week which has been chosen by Kathrin...LIGHT IT must include a candle on your card/ can use a real candle or include a candle in your image or as an embellishment.

Hi Donna,

Pretty cold this neck of the woods too. We had a slight dusting of snow on Saturday which has just made everything slippery.

Love your card and how you've done the sentiment on the computer.

Keep warm.

Oh Donna, this is absolutely too cute! I just love your polka dotted paper - it is scrummy all over and the border punches really add that special touch! I love the flower and the heart buttons - how very cute! Ooh...this image is just incredibly cute! WOW! Oh, the organza bow is great - I just love organza ribbon. I'm like you - I LOVE Christmas. I don't have kids but I still get into this holiday all the way! Freezing and now snow...that's how it feels here! LOL! But I think your place is much colder.
