The Holly Bears the Crown

I'm stopping by for short post to share a card that I made for the Week 5 Challenge over at the Papertrey Ink forum.  I LOVE the Merry Little Christmas set from the October release - the sentiments are amazing!!  One of my favorite holiday carols is The Holly and the Ivy.  ...of all the trees that are in the wood the holly bears the crown...  There's something about that that just speaks to me! 

The song also reminds me of my 8th grade Christmas program.  I sang a solo - don't remember my song - but two of my best friends sang "The Holly and the Ivy."  I was so jealous, because I wanted to sing that song!  Funny isn't it, what we remember?  I also remember the beautiful green jumper that my mom made for me to wear for my solo.  I can't remember if it was corduroy or velvet, but while I'm sitting here I can remember how special I felt wearing it that night!
Thanks for sharing these memories with me!  God Bless!
