It's cold outside...

4:09 PM

Slowly but steady I'm getting into the Christmas groove! Some of my lectures are later on the evening and on Wednesday I could take the time to stroll through around before. It was so wonderful to see the whole city center illuminated, smell (and eat, of course) the roasted almonds from the near Christmas market at the old castle...

Also, it inspired me to give the Christmas card-making another try, with the second card being a lot influenced by the Scandinavian samples of Cath's Christmas in the Old Country Challenge :-)

Both of these cards above along with all the others I've done in the weeks before and some gift tags went straight to a card drive for a children's hospital in the area.

On another note, this post by Dawn made me smiling all day long yesterday! I've been spotlighted for the little birdie card I made for Raspberry Suite Challenge #19 :) Haha, I found it out at university and my professor looked a wee bit irritated how corpus linguistics all of a sudden could make me that happy LOL

    I am really loving your Christmas cards! They are elegant, clean, and beautiful!

    Yes, Stickles are an addiction!!! I love them, oh so much. They make me smile. And I have quite a few of them and somehow I just keep collecting more. Did I mention that I just love them?! :>

    Yes! How sweet you are to recognize that that particular 'Karen' was me for the Home Made PTI win! Talk about something to make you smile....a PTI package arriving on your front doorstep and it didn't cost anything?! Definitely a joy to smile about. :>
