A Christmas Card to Remember!

(Idea shamelessly stolen from Buck)
My blogfriend Lou sends out beautifully hand painted Christmas cards each year and I have been blessed two years in a row as a lucky recipient! The above is actually last years card that I had framed and keep in my kitchen. The card she sent this year ( of a beautiful fall leaf) was inadvertantly packed away with the other Christmas cards and decorations. So for now, last year's card will be what I share with you, until such time as I get off my lazy butt and retrieve the one she sent this year! (it is as beautiful and as much cherished as last years card)
Lou is an amazing woman, artist, mother, wife, grandmother, rancher, friend, blogger, etc. etc. She has a great sense of humor, and an even greater sense of devotion to her family. I respect her and admire her for all that she does and is. Take a moment to follow the link, read a bit and then say hello...
Thanks again Lou...
your card was absolutely gorgeous!


  1. What a thoughtful friend Lou is. Nothing is better than a handmade gift!

  2. Thanks for the very kind words and the plug for my blog and art. I am still amazed that people read my blog, but very thankful. I so appreciate my readers especially the readers - hence the art cards. Jesse says that we are coming to see you some day.

  3. Handmade and pretty too! That is a keeper and I don't blame you for framing it!

  4. Thanks for the linky-lurve, Alison. And I think you're spot-on where Lou's concerned. I admire the woman... a LOT.
