Oh how adorable! Now why do I get the impression that she's shaking the present to see what's in it, rather than placing it under the tree to give to someone else?

Thank you for sharing it with us, Master Maelin!

I haven't been able to decide between the two cards I designed this year, so I think I'll be sending everyone two! They'll just be going out via email anyhow (there's no way I'll manage to post them in the regular mail this year...), so it's not like I'll have to pay double postage.

Like Anneli we don't have a tree yet, maybe over the weekend, when Marjon has time to put it up and decorate it.

I think my father was going to get a tree today for our house.

We go on a real Christmas tree hunt for my grandmother's house. We go out into the woods and cut down the tree ourselves at the junk yard a family friend owns. I don't know when we are going to do that, but it's always a lot of fun.

@Cheryl, I like the second card the best although the first one is very cute ...the one with the your daughter with her arms around your son...that one is very lovely. one that I am sure the grandparents will love

@Anneli...We can never wait very long to put up our tree ...we like to enjoy it up all season long.

@Crochetlady...Thank you dear lady for the compliment ...and a Happy Holiday to you and yours.

@Becky...I am so sorry to hear that you are having computer troubles...hopefully it will be all fixed and running smoothly very soon. glad you enjoyed the card...

*R*...hope that you enjoy picking out the tree with your family, that sounds like a wonderful Holiday tradition...Happy Holidays to you and yours.

We won't be putting up a tree this year. Just not in the mood for it. Oh well we'll still have a good holiday as we'll be together and that's what matters.

Happy holidays to all.

Maw, what you need to do is buy your little fur friend a tiny tree of his/her own. Then put some cat toys on it...some with kat nip in them...then he will play with his tree and hopefully leave yours along....Good Luck!!
