Lovely card and nicely put together :) Thx for stopping by again. I know what you mean about cards for the men. I hate making them for the guys! The wire words are a nice little addition. They look good as an added embellishment also :)

This is another beauty from you, Vanessa! I love the images you have used. Doesn't it feel good to have started the christmascards? I sure am happy for myself.

I hope you are coping with the winter over there. I would love to send some snow over to your boys, we have more than we need (according to me!).

Have a nice week-end!!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Girl, you just got my attention today. lol. While doing my usual rounds (a little late I know) through my google reader and when I saw your Christmas card (it's beautiful!) I asked myself how in the world I missed an entry from last year. lol.

Good thing! I'm so happy that you are early working in your end of year cards! I need to do the same any time soon!
