Last few Christmas Cards... and a baby photo. :)

Hello...
Just popping in while my baby sleeps to say hi, share the last of my Christmas cards for this year, and a photo of the new arrival to my family - little Lily.
Things are likely to be a little busy for me for the next few weeks - and I am addicted to cuddling my little one, so I'm unlikely to make any cards or blog much... but I promise I'll be back.
So first, a few cards made using this week's Hero Arts digikit releases.
First, the Cozy Treats kit.  Adorable!!!

And next, a trio of cards made using Tree-Mendous. I thought it would be fun to make some shaped cards.

And finally, my little Lily Francesca Beel.  Beel is my married name if you were wondering why she is not an Abrams. :)
Baby Beel
Hope to be back soon, but until then, be happy and enjoy the run up to Christmas. I love this time of year. :)
And thank you for all the wonderful well wishes - you are all so kind.

Blessings to all ... there is no greater "gift" than a child. And by all means, you should hold her and love her as often as you can. Little ones grow up SO fast. As the grandmother of two little girls (18 mo; 13 mo), I can tell you that Christmas will be very special this year! Enjoy your holidays too ....
