It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's really starting to seem Christmas-y - snow, music on the radio, decorations..... bring it on!

We just returned from a weekend in VA with family - it was so nice. Relaxing, great food, family and friends - what more can you ask for? On Saturday, there was a beautiful snowfall; actually about 6 inches of snow accumulation.

And, of course, we had to play a bit in the snow.... (picture shows Spencer, Freya and Dallas - he's proudly owned by my in laws)

Since the snow was a tad wet, this is what happens to pups with longer hair! The fun was worth the de-snowballing :)

This morning was even more incredible - the sun was out and all that snow was just pristine. How wonderful :) Days like this are completely life-affirming....


Since we don't get snow like this in East TN, we had to take the pups out to play some more. Being originally from Canada (Spencer) and the northern US (Freya), I think they miss the snow sometimes so I like to indulge them a bit on occasions such as this.

Dallas (above) seemed to really enjoy his first encounter with snow (he's only 11 months old and from TN). Ah, the simple joys :)

After arriving home, I decided to make a little card for the most recent Just Us Girls Challenge. It's a sketch challenge this week and, oh my goodness, please check out the DT's inspiration pieces if you haven't already - GORGEOUS! 
*** Addendum - I was excited to realize that this card also qualifies for the Pile it On challenge this week which is to add glitter to a project :)

I cut the Christmas light bulbs with my cricut (Christmas cheer cart). I covered the surface with glue and added Martha Stewart glitter. I also added a touch of gold pen to the cardstock under the ribbon and above and below the sentiment. Very little stamping on this one.

I just love Christmas lights - my Dad always put up those large, mutlicolor bulbs on the exterior of the house. I still remember the glow coming through the window at night, gently illuminating the bedroom. There is still something just so comforting about that memory :) Love this time of year!

That's all for today. Hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
