Feliz Navidad

Good morning my dear friends. I hope you all had a joyful and peaceful Christmas day with your family and friends.  We went to my parents' house and had a great time with them, my sister, my niece, her hubby and her sweet little boy.  I love watching the younger ones opening their presents and that includes my daughter, who is now 17 years old.  She asked me not to put her presents in gift bags, she wanted them to be wrapped individually, so she can open them as when she was a little girl. I sat down and watched her open the gifts and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Talking about my daughter, I created today's card for her.  She is a dog lover and when I saw the image that came with the Magnolia Ink Christmas edition, I immediately thought of her. It was difficult to find the time to work on it because we are ALWAYS together, so I didn't have a lot of time to play with it and I knew she was also expecting her Christmas card. And here it is.
