  1. Wow, Gail! This is really pretty. I love the stocking charms! They are the perfect touch! Thanks for stopping by Sister Act.


  2. Your fireplace scene looks so warm & inviting. The stocking charms are a perfect addition. I just happen to have posted a card for this morn in which I used a BasicGrey/Sizzix embossing folder so I'm entered in the new BG challenge as well. Here's hoping one of us wins the previous and/or the new challenges.

  6. lol What a super cute card Gail! I love the moose laying in front of the fireplace. And of course your sentiment is perfect. We love roasting chestnuts, but they are never around at Christmas. We had 2 Chestnut trees in my front yard, yes a mess, but they were oh so good. They fall in Oct. so it was always a mess to clean up. They are long gone now, but boy thanks for the fun memories of roasting chestnuts for my 7 guys! Thanks for joining us at JFFC;-)

  7. what a beautiful card Gail.
