Christmas Past

Counting down the days as I am sure most of you are! :)  Hope to finish my gift shopping on Monday.  Meantime, we are feeling a little sentimental these days at my house.  My fil who is the BEST DAD in the world was told he wont have too much time left with us here.  That being said, we are cherishing every moment we have left with him since we love him so very much.  My oldest son wont be home for Christmas either- he hopes to make it home next month.  Here is a card I made for my son with a picture of my in-laws on one of their first Christmas'... and my mil is pregnant here too!  The jury is still out on just which boy (there are 3) she is pregnant with but we love this pic just the same.  I used some red cord cardstock and some red print scraps along with a strip from MME snowflake dp and some Graphic 45 punch outs.  I LOVE vintage and they were certainly a lovely couple...dont you think?  TFL!

What a really really beautiful card, Jane, and what a wonderful way to share that photo. I am so sorry to hear about your fil, but it sounds like everyone is really going to make the moments left memorable. I am glad I finally took the time to look at my fellow stampers blogs. Merry Christmas to you and yours and a Very Happy and memorable New Year!!!! Love and Hugs, Shirley

This is fabulous, Jane. My heart goes out to you. My mother is slipping away. She rallied a bit for the holidays but with the kids now gone, she is just so sad and so tired. Glad your boy willing be coming home soon-so hard when they don't make it home for Christmas. Sending you soft, cyber hugs!
