See You on the Christmas Tree! FMS 15



See you on the Christmas Tree!  I have no idea what that means but my parents said it to me every night during the Christmas season once our tree was up and decorated.  So naturally I said it to my kids. I smiled this week when I opened my daughter's Christmas card.  It was signed "See you on the Christmas tree!" Putting up the Christmas tree is still one of the all time best activities of the year.  There is nothing better than lighting it up for the first time - always magical!  Taking the tree down...........another story........

I've never heard that expression before, but it's sweet that your kids are fond of it and using it too. :) Merry Christmas, Linda!

Love the twine wrapped around the image panel and buttons! It really adds a unique look to your gorgeous card. Love the story you shared as well, I had never heard the expression before either.

It has been a honor creating with you for the last seven weeks. Thanks for everything!
