Sending Christmas Hugs

It's Monday again.  I've been missing in action all weekend.  There was a little flu bug that came to visit and kept us all pretty quiet.  Thank goodness it left this morning.  I wanted to give a quick update that my grandmother's masectomy surgery went well.  They got the results back and she is now once again cancer free!  Thanks to all of you who kept us in your thoughts and prayers.  Prayer is a powerful thing isn't it?!?

I have s cute little snowman today from Sassy Cheryl's called "Jumping Jack Santa". Isn't he just adorable?  I followed the sketch at Friday Sketches and incorporated several other challenges in this one too.  I opted to color my santa in Raspberry Red and added flitter to his clothes and beard and added some flock to his fuzzy parts!  He's just so happy how  could he not put a smile on your face. 

FYI - My neighbors daughter, Wednesday who's 4, comes over to watch cartoons and visit a couple times a week.  We are at the "I Want Everything" stage.  I have started a "list" for her and when she wants something (which is every commercial" we just add it to the list and then she gets to choose what she really wants.  The best part is that she gives me a list for her older brother too.  Why do they have so many toys available to buy?  What child needs 10 Dora dolls!!!!  And what's with Black Friday being every day in November???? 

Challenges entered:
Sassy Cheryl's - Use ribbon or tulle
Totally Gorjuss - Traditional Christmas
Stamp something - Use a digi
Digital Tuesday - Never used stash plus a digi (Paper is from DCWV I got last year)

Hope you are having a wonderful start to your week!
Hugs - Jen
