Merry Christmas Merry Monday #77 Mojo Monday #313



September 30, 2013

Another month has flown by!  I just don't know why time has to go by so quickly. We were delighted to spend time with three of our GRAND daughters this weekend.  They are such a joy!  They make us laugh and we LOVE spending precious moments with them.  I wish I could bottle all their energy and enthusiasm!!!  Needless to say, our home is lonely and quiet today!

As I was reading through many of the blogs I follow and looking through the sketch challenges for the week, I found two that really appealed to me.  The colors in Merry Monday #77 and Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge # 313 gave me the perfect chance to start Christmas cards!
