Silent Night

Tonight is silent and tomorrow a new babe is born.  Jesus is the reason for the season!

Our home has been transformed into a winter wonderland.  Our nest is cozied up, the tree is up and the decorations are in place.  There are a few traditions we like to embrace at Christmastime and one of them is sending cards to our loved ones.

Tomorrow is Christmas.  OMGoodness.  I've been working on cards and gifts since September, all the while thinking "I've got lots of time!"  Well, time's up!!  Here are the ones you haven't seen yet.

If you've been following my posts, you'll notice that I just love the vintage images.  This card is one of my favorites.

Another favorite is this one.  It is a Joyeaux Noel, isn't it?

This card is a little bit vintage and a little bit modern.  I love the envelope especially!

How could I not use shocking pink to mirror the pink coat she is wearing?

Father Christmas in all his glory.  What's not to love here?

The snow sure has piled up on this barn and fence.  Be Merry!

Madonna and her Baby Jesus.  I wish you could see the sparkly-ness of the card.

I think I surprised the recipient of this card.  When I saw the image, I immediately thought of her!

The song that comes to mind when I see this image is "Angels We Have Heard On High."

One more Joyeaux Noel ... isn't that little angel sweet?

Oh yeah ... he's "making a list and checking it twice" don'tcha know!  Have you been naughty or nice?

Away in a manger ...

This card was dropped off on a doorstep the other day.

I think she'll stay plenty warm wrapped up like that.

This little girl certainly is a brave soul to feed that animal.

Doesn't look like that truck is going anywhere until Spring by the looks of all that snow.

This card was sent to a dear friend that used to cross-country ski with me.  I hope it brings back memories like it did for me.

Another one of those vintage images.  Love it!

This card was not one we sent but I just couldn't leave it out.  Ohhhhhhhhhh, how I wish you could see this card in person.  Julie's brother took this picture (in Minnesota) of snow on a blue spruce branch.  The card mirrors the blue spruce color perfectly.  I'm sure he'll be surprised when Julie sends him the card.

That about wraps it up for the 2014 Christmas cards.  May happy times decorate your holiday season and may the wonder of Christmas be with you forever.  Merry Christmas from our hearts to yours!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Oh, how beautiful. All of them. Lots of hard work here, but I'm sure you enjoyed it.

  2. Dear Sue,

    Many hugs,
