Snowy Christmas Wishes

Here it is.  My last Christmas card (I think).  I can't think of another I might need.  It seems that December goes so much faster than all the other months.  This is our first Christmas without my mother and I have tried to keep as busy as I can.  I know she wouldn't want us to be sad at the happiest time of the year.  My sister hung up a beautiful memorial dove for her today.   I know she would love it.  

The image for this card comes from Simply Betty Stamps.  She is one of my new Christmas digis.  Her name is Lola.  Her little friend is Louie.  I have colored her with Whisper Strokes Markers and Stickles from Ranger.  The embellishment is from Sizzix.  The paper comes from my box o scraps.  I used Paper Pizazz, Paper Pad Challenge, Pocket full of Posies and generic card stock.  The sentiment is from me.

I am entering into the following challenges:

Everybody-Art #173
Fresh Brewed Blog
Penny's Paper-Crafty #69

It's time to rest now.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

I'm so glad you've found a beautiful way to remember your Mother at Christmas. We have two little angels (our twin boys) in Heaven, and we have two golden angels with their names engraved on them that hang on our tree every year. It's a difficult time of year, but keeping their memory alive is always a comfort. Thanks for sharing this adorable card. Have a blessed Christmas!

Thanks for sharing this adorable card. Christmas is always a hard time remembering members of the family who are no longer with us. I try to always remember the joy they had at Christmas and that they would want us to continue that. Thanks so much for joining Stamp n doodle's Christmas Challenge. Lynne

What a wonderful Christmas card! I truly wished for snow, but alas, it just wasn't meant to be. Probably better since I have to travel this year, but I can live vicariously through your beautiful card. :)
Your dove is just gorgeous and touched my heart.
May peace, happiness, comfort and love surround you this Christmas day!

Thank you SO much for playing along with Paper Creations Ink for the "Something Old/New" challenge.
Hugs to you,
