Tuesday Throwdown - What Christmas Means to Me

I wanted to play along with the Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week - and when I saw the theme "What Christmas Means to You" it got me thinking...  What do I love best about Christmas? I love the sparkly lights, the magic in the air, the smile on a child's face, Christmas Cookies, Poinsettias, Mistletoe.. well I just about love it all!   This card represents all the things I LOVE about Christmas.
But what Christmas really "means" to me?  It means anticipating the birth of Christ.
I wish you all the best Christmas filled with the things you love, and blessings in the coming year.

These are both so good...and so different! I love your typical "fussy" card with the gorgeous flowers, patterned paper and ribbon bow, and can't forget the doily and stick pin! The CAS blue card is truly a beautiful card as well as sentiment.

Absolutely perfect, Jeanne! Really love the simplicity of the second, and those big blooms, on the first, are delish! So pretty!

Oh my! Love both the cards, Jeanne. Fabulous colours and very festive. The message on the second card is just PERFECT. Thanks for playing along and I hope you had a lovely Christmas.
