My favorite DIL has one of those December birthdays so close to Christmas that it often gets lost in the holiday shuffle. Each year since she joined the family (a long time ago!), I've tried to make sure that she got both a birthday card and a Christmas card along with separate gifts for each.
Then, this year, I found this really fun image at The Paper Shelter and knew I could use it for a joint Birthday/Christmas celebration. See how Mama Snow has both a birthday present and Christmas stocking for Little Snow Boy? Perfect! (I'll probably return to my separate cards and separate gifts for DIL but this year I couldn't resist!) :-D

Words to Craft By
I have a pre-scheduled post tomorrow for my QKR Stampede DT inspiration and then several which are already pre-scheduled for the week-long, annual, Christmas celebration at Catch the Bug. After that, it may be a bit hit-and-miss as I spend time with family and focus on the joy of holidays surrounded by them. If I seem to be MIA when it comes to visiting your blogs, my apologies, but my focus is more apt to be on family than friends through Christmas and the New Year. Once we get to January, I'm sure my return will mean all is back to the normal routine.
Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
