Feeling the Joy of Christmas....

So are you feeling it..  I must say I just love this time of the year!
And with the job I have you can't help but feel the Joy of Christmas!
Today at our preschool Santa came.  And it was so much fun
seeing how excited these little one's got when
 Santa came through the door..  One of the little girls in our class
jumped right up on his lap and look him right in the eyes and said
I Love You!  It just melted my heart..






So I finally had some time to play in my craft room this morning.
And the first Challenge I looked at and definitely wanted to play in was
over at Cupcake Creations.  Every week she has a fun color
challenge and I have been wanting to join in for a while now..

I just love stopping by Mona's blog and I am sure many of you have been
there..  She is so creative and gives me so much inspiration..

Here is the inspirational photo!



So here is the card I came up with to enter into Mona's Challenge.




The sketch I used in from Mojo Monday!
  One of my old favorite challenges...

Thank you my friends for stopping by and I hope you
feeling the Joy of the Season.  Cause it will be gone
before you know it..

Hugs, Linda
