Merry Christmas

Did you get what you wanted for Christmas?
For me, the question is:  Did you GIVE what you wanted to for Christmas? 

I fell a bit short this year.  Didn't finish as many doll dresses for my niece, Anne, as I had meant to.  Didn't get as many cards or envelopes made for my mother's stash as I meant to.  But there are twelve days of Christmas, after all.

Here are a couple of my favorite cards that went into Mother's box.
