    Merry Christmas Becca! Your card is gorgeous as usual and they are always a blessing to my heart. I have been richly blessed to have my children close enough to see often and I love all the family – brothers and family, niece and husband, and all our children, grandchildren, and 1 greatgrandson, and 1 great grand on the way, who shared Christmas Eve supper with us to be my greatest gift!!ReplyCancel

    Merry Christmas to you Becca!!! Having adult children means I get to sit and enjoy the beautiful morning and Christmas tree until they wake up. I am most blessed today for my husband being released yesterday from the hospital! Praise God for his healing mercies! That’s all I need for Christmas! I love your card and especially the font of the sentiment! Beautiful! Many blessings to you today and always!ReplyCancel

    Merry Christmas Becca, I was blessed today by visiting your blog while waiting for my husband to get ready to go to our Christmas celebration. But beyond that, I am blessed today by having beautiful weather, a warm and comfortable home, a husband that loves me and a dear friend who has opened her heart and home to us on holidays as well as throughout the year. The greatest blessing of all is the Savior whose birth we celebrate and who has blessed us with the promise of eternal life.ReplyCancel

    Merry Christmas Becca. Yes it is Christmas but sure doesn’t feel like it. Hot down here, not really normal and that is what stirs up all of these storms.

    Just such a stunning card here again Becca. I just absolutely love your gorgeous bows always, and this fit sooo perfect for this beautiful card here.
    I´ve been soo blessed to have most of my kids and grandkids here for the christmascelebration this year, and it´s rare to happen anymore, as they have soo many others to care for too, so it´s been wonderful to have almost all here including my little grandson at just 18months, as christmas is just more special, when there´s small kids arouind. Just to see their joy and exitement is the very best gift anyone can get.
    Hope you´re having a wonderful Christmas too with your loved ones around and all the joy in the world.ReplyCancel

We had 23 in for breakfast at 9 – consisting of bacon and sausage links on the grill, breakfast (egg) casserole, french toast casserole, biscuits and sausage gravy, fruit, juicea and of course, coffee. Everything was awesome.

    Blessed Christmas to you, Becca – know your Christmas is full of family and faith, even though your gathering is shy a body – but not of memory. We were blessed to have Christmas breakfast and gifts and games this morning with our daughter in her group home – her relatively new adult placement. She used a family recipe for a breakfast casserole. I made cinnamon rolls and baked them here – they were just right for eating by the time we made it there. We laughed and hugged and made memories…it was a good celebration time for all. Well done. We’ve had to shift how we do family gatherings over the last four years, but we are learning and trying to get it right. This was our best Christmas yet, – certainly the smoothest. It was definitely a change that she was open to having us come to her home and share her space with us.

    As for another giveaway – girlfriend, you are more than generous – every post you make, you give away inspiration and a bit of yourself. Anything else is just icing on the cake. Much as I love the Friday giveaways…don’t care if I never win. I get enough just visiting here when you post. YOU are the gift…and we know it!

    Today, Christmas Day, I am blessed with a husband who looks after me and my health. Yesterday was the big family do, actually a family reunion of my siblings. We had an almost unbelievably good time late into the evening at one brother’s house after a couple of days of shared meals and catching up beforehand. This morning I started feeling ill and my husband shooed me off to bed to get some much needed rest and spent the rest of the day keeping tabs on me and making me comfortable. It is also a blessing that I was in tip-top shape yesterday for all the fun. A quiet Christmas Day at home with a hovering hubby to review all the fun of the past few days was actually an ideal way to end the festivities for Christmas. My cold will pass but me experiences will be with me to enjoy for a long time. I hope your holiday was a wonderful one, Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Karen M. RothDecember 26, 2015 - 3:44 am

    Oh, My! I actually enjoyed my first Pain-free time tonight in about three years as my family was so goofy and we kept coming up with silly zingers that made us each laugh so hard and for so long that my Sis-in-law who had been putting her grandson to bed came down and thought we were all drunk but all we had to drink was water!!! I ended up with a hoarse cough just from laughing so hard. Definitely Good memories!

    The laughter was great for all of us as this was our 2nd year without my father-in-law Pa Bear who had passed away in October of last year.

    It was especially great for me as I lost 3 friends this past month. Last year I lost 15 friends to various Cancers and one to Suicide. Then found out that I had lost 2 family members that noone even told me about.

    Sometimes you just have to let joy and happiness flood your soul in the midst of grief as we know we will see our loved ones again one day. Becca, I was thinking of you and your family today <3 In fact, I wore a black turtleneck in memory of everyone who was lost this year.

    Then I gave them all the great news! I am a Gramma for the first time! I am so tickled I could Dance so ya'll please, please pray that my daughter will get to the point that she can forgive me and let me be a part of her and my grandson's life.

    I wish every one of you a very Merry CHRISTMAS and a most Prosperous and abundantly peaceful joy-filled and full of love New Year!!!! {{{{hugz}}} Masquerading CrafterReplyCancel

    Merry Christmas Becca! It was a blessed day with my family! Love visiting with my grown children and grandchildren but missing those in Heaven. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family in missing your beloved brother. They are all in Gods loving hands.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, Lovely card again–do you ever toss mistakes that can’t be fixed? Bet not. Your trash bin from projects is probably uninteresting, unlike mine. You had me thinking about being blessed today and good health and security came front and center but mulling over the question I looked at a bigger picture and decided my my most important blessing has been ongoing from the support, kindness, guidance from others since childhood, adolescence, first years of marriage, children, empty nesting, and grand-parenting. The Lord has blessed me with loving women and a few good men, most are committed Christians who stood with me in times of need and joy with good direction. Those people are my praise today. Most people are not as fortunate as I am but I am very grateful. BarbaraReplyCancel

    I was so very blessed to spend the day with my dear sisters, and we were able to speak to our cousin in Texas. I am so truly blessed to have 2 wonderful, beautiful sisters. I love them so much. They are my family AND my best friends. We spent the day being so very thankful for our Lord and Savior and all the sacrifices made for us. I am also very blessed to have dear friends in my life. I hope your Christmas was full of Christ, family, fun, and friends.ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca your card is just breathtaking, and your trademark gorgeous bow – luscious!! I have been able to re-create your cards but not the bows. Giddy with excitement for your new dies.
    Spent Christmas with both of my kids, their spouses and my 4 grandkids, ages 16 months to 7 years. So much fun and good food too! I miss my dh and parents but life is good and I am blessed.
    Here’s hoping you had a family filled Christmas and you will have a happy healthy and prosperous 2016.
    Thank you for your blog and your generosity in sharing your creativity and the chance to win one of your cards and giveaways!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca. Happy Boxing Day. I hope you had a lovely Christmas Day, thank you for taking the time to share this absolutely gorgeous card – it’s stunning :-) We spent Christmas Day with my family here at home, enjoying lots of lovely food, drink and game playing. Has been quieter today, but we are preparing for my in-laws coming to spend the day with us tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of the holidays. Hugs xxxReplyCancel

    Merry Christmas Becca! Another gorgeous card!!
    I was blessed this Christmas by having my mother still with us. She turned 99 this past October and is doing fairly well. Also having my son and DIL here… so wonderful to have family around for Christmas!ReplyCancel

  • Judy BDecember 26, 2015 - 5:09 pm

    I had a wonderful Christmas with all 3 of my children yesterday. We focused more on family and spending time together rather than the gifts and I can truthfully say it was one of my favorite days. The older we get, the more you realize that you, yourself are the gift to others. I hope you had a wonderful holiday also. Thanks for sharing all your gorgeous projects.ReplyCancel

  • Janet SaievaDecember 26, 2015 - 6:18 pm

  • RuthieDecember 26, 2015 - 9:01 pm

    Beautiful card Becca! Love all the layers.
    I am blessed every day. But on this very special day of the year, I am blessed to spend Christmas with my family including both my Mother 91 and Dad 93. Everyone came to our home for a wonderful day of great food, champagne and lots of home baked sweets. I did a “60’s” tree this year and it was fun to watch Mom and Dad walk all around the tree looking at all the ornaments from my childhood that they used to hang on their tree when I was growing up. It was a very sweet moment in time. Loves, RuthieReplyCancel

    Merry Christmas Becca,
    Thank you for another beautiful card. I must keep this one in mind for next Christmas. I love how you use the gold!
    My Christmas was blessed by attending mass, then family & friends feasting at my house, with the addition of an adorable new neice only 3 weeks old on her first Christmas.
    Hope your Christmas was as blessed & as joyful as mine xReplyCancel

  • Norah McPheeDecember 27, 2015 - 6:55 am

    Good afternoon lovely Becca,
    This Christmas has been the other side of the coin for me from last years misery in losing my best friend in my Mum in September, her best friend my Auntie Jean just days before. This year i have a 6 month old grandson who was sent to keep me going i think by Mum since i didn’t have her anymore. He is the cheeriest wee boy that you ever did see and has brought joy to an awful lot of people which is just wonderful. He was named after his 2 great grandads in which one is still alive and just besotted with him as is his great gran. Did i ever expect last year that i would have this wee bundle of pure joy, no but i am so glad he came and he is a definite blessing in my life. Of course he didn’t understand what Christmas was but he laughed and giggled and bounced the whole day. I don’t know about anyone else but i was sure tired by the end of the day. So as you see lovely lady i had a true blessing this year and to me the best there could be in being made a Granny to a beautiful baby boy.
    sending you lots of love, hopes and prayers out to you dear lady and your Mum at this time

    My special blessing on Christmas day was having my 96 year old mother in law with us for the day. She is hale and hearty, still works three days a week, two hour shifts. What an amazing lady she is.ReplyCancel

    The Lord blesses me everyday in different ways….today one of my blessings was that my husband had a GREEN day! We equate how he feels to a stop light: red = bad; yellow = okay; and green is a good day!
    Beautiful card as always Becca….may you have many blessings today too!
