We're Friends and Family

Hi everyone!!  It's almost Christmas and though we all have family and friends we enjoy spending time with at this time of the year, we also have family and friends that we don't see or visit with often enough but still mean just as much to us!  Us gals on the Design Team of Color Me Creative Challenge Site wanted to take a moment to say send a big HUG and a special thanks to our fearless leader, Suzanne Dean.

Suzanne HAS to be the easiest and sweetest person to work with and, as many of you know from reading her blog, about the funniest too (though sometimes we ALL think she'd be better off leaving the house in bubble wrap! LOL)  *Kidding!!*

As you may have figured out, Suzanne adores the time she spends with her family and quite often shares her travels and outings with us.  So, as a little way to encourage her to continue doing what she loves best AND to keep sharing it with us... the DT would like to invite you to share in our little blog hop sharing our creations for Suzanne that remind us of family, sharing, recording memories and love.  Suzanne is a perfect example of how to share as much time as you can with those you love and to create memories that will last a lifetime for generations to come.

So here's to you, Suzanne... we love you, your crazy ways and think you are just like family to us as well.
            I had an extremely hard time with this card, I think it was just hard with the holiday coming for me, and normally I go all out with embellishments but as I have so much on my plate right now, I kept it simple since I had to recolor like 7 times, yes 7.......we won't go there right now Bahahaha
                                     I used Wee Stamps "Berry" , as I know how much Suzanne loves her kittys! and this looked like my perfect choice!  The paper is from  Stampin Up Christmas paper from this year:-)  Lighting here today was also not my friend, I think it was a total off day for me, for sure!
Anyway Suzanne you know how much I love you Honey and thank you for all you do for all of us on the DT! I enjoy the "family of Friends" you have put together xoxo

Now head on over to Kim DeRuosi and enjoy the awesome project she is sharing with Suzanne.  If you missed the beginning of the hop, you can head on over to Tina Gilliland
Thanks for stopping by and we hope you have a VERY Merry Christmas and that you make all the memories and treasured times you can with your family and friends!

We love you, Suzanne and thank you for another fabulous year with the CMC DT "family"!!
