Happy Holidays Everyone! This is my last post for 2012. I'm headed North (still South for a lot of people, lol) to spend Christmas with my children, sisters, and Dad. Best wishes to all for a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Enjoy your holiday traditions with family and friends! Speaking of friends...I know the blog world can be a complete virtual reality for some, and friendships can be tenuous at best, but I want to say thank you to Miss Amy Young for being a friend (even though we've never met in person). She's encouraged me with her cheerful comments, helped me improve my coloring skills with her videos, and even gave me the opportunity to show my work to a wider audience by allowing me to be one of her "guest gals". And for the past few years, she has sent me beautiful Christmas cards, all of which I cherish! This year's card was my favorite of the ones she posted on her blog. Imagine my delight when I received it in the mail!
