Card Of The Week – Happy Holidays

Hello dear friends! I want to take a moment to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a joyful Holiday Season before we scatter to the four winds to spend time with family and loved ones!

It’s so hard to believe another year has passed. 2015 seems like it’s flown by especially fast! Are you savoring the last remaining days of December or are you eagerly anticipating the ringing in of the New Year?

As I prepare for the season, I am struck by the wonder and joy that exists in the ordinary moments of our lives. This week, Magellan has transformed an annual Christmas tradition into a wondrous Living Nativity. What wonders have you observed in your life?

    Ha, I smiled at Magellan in the sink in the middle of the nativity scene. Who knows, the inn where Joseph and Mary stayed might have had a cat too.
    And the card is beautiful, well done.

    Lovely card!
    Love the kitty too, I am always a little jealous when I see his pic, because I am so allergic to cats, I can’t even visit friends who have cats! 🙁
    Happy WOYWW!

    I really love your ‘living nativity’ scene, Ramona. It is very personal.
    And you are right, the ornament looks very similar to mine.
    I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas time!
