Top of My List

So glad my husband is doing better. He had back surgery almost 10 weeks ago. It was difficult to come home and always find him sitting on the couch. He is the type of guy that never stops. Now when I come home he might not even be there! He's doing things, like taking the car for an oil change. He is going to try golf tomorrow! 

Having him is the first thing on my Christmas list.

Digital Delights is the maker of these wonderful, meaningful digital stamps.
A touch of christmas sentiments set

Candy Cane accessories set

 I printed the sentiment larger than the image, to accentuate how important George is to me. I chalked a heart by making a stencil out of copy paper. I outlined it in Stickles.

The packages are colored with Prismacolor markers. The lacy die cut is from my Card Club I attend. I don't know who made it.

I used Totally Tartan paper from DD.

The gems are from Hobby Lobby. The ribbon is Offray from a trip I took years ago to their outlet store in Pennsylvania.

The card stock is CTMH cranberry.
