Merry Christmas! PPA149



As if the holiday season isn't busy enough my daughter's birthday was last week and mine is today!  My goal every year is to have everything done by my birthday so I can just kick back and enjoy.  Except for a bit of baking things are pretty well set around here.  And I am spending my birthday with Emma - best present ever!  Thought you might enjoy seeing Emma's reaction the first time she ever laid eyes on the Grinch!

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!



Pals Paper Arts has a sketch challenge this week!

Happy Birthday, Linda!!! I see you're in good company, well maybe not the Grinch! Love your card too, the staggered words are a great way to use this sketch!

Linda Suarez said...

Happy Birthday Linda! Wishing you a wonderful birthday and holiday with your beautiful family!

Ann Schach said...

A classic Linda Callahan card for sure! I love the look on Emma's face! Happy holidays to you and yours!

Margaret Moody said...

Oh my goodness, Linda! I love your card, but Emma's picture wins again! I can tell by looking at her expression that she already possesses her grandmother's sense of humor! That expression is priceless! I'd pay good money for her to tell me what she was thinking about when she looked over a saw Grinch sitting next to her! I'm certain whatever she would have to say would be something witty and funny! So funny and too, too cute!

Merry Christmas to you and yours, friend!

Jen said...
