Dueling Darlings

I am finally here but late for the Duel. Just getting back from vacation and the various Christmas preparations for the kids at school needing to be done, I am just now getting my card for this month's duel posted. So sorry to all the Dueling Darlings that I am late!

Our Dueling Darlings group received an awesome kit this month from Terry. We received a kit with this cute snowman image (SU) and some incredible designer paper from Three Bugs in a Rug and Imaginisce. Wonderful embellishments of snowflakes, ribbons, buttons and metal dots. This month's theme is "'My Favorite Things', things that make you happy! In the winter season." After creating our card we were instructed to "think of a few things that make you happy and share them with us!"

So...my happy list includes, first and foremost, that God loved me and saved me!! My husband and children. I am very happy that I can be a SAHM and be very involved at my kids' school. And after the long, dark winter months the sunshine makes me very happy. I love being outside in the sun. Stamping and chatting with all my SCS friends in the morning while drinking coffee is definitely one of my happy places. :) And at this time of year, I love seeing all the Chrismtas lights all over town.

Thanks Terry for a great kit and wonderful theme!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!
