Spreading Love at the 12 Months of Christmas

Today I made a special Christmas card for my daughter. AND, I'm going to be smart this year and before I store it, I'm going to pop it into an envelope with her name on it so I don't go crazy looking for it when the holiday rolls around.
I used a digi from Mari Digis Stamps called A68 Merry Christmas 3. I also used some beautiful holiday paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles: Two papers from her new Winter World of Love Paper Kit and one from her A Touch of Frost Paper Kit.
When it comes down to it, Christmas is all about spending time with the people you love! Even if family members live far apart, most try to get together to spend a portion of the holidays together if they are able to. Family is precious. So are close friends for that matter. It is the people who are nearest and dearest to us in our lives that are always there for us, no matter what reason we may need them! Being able to enjoy their company at Christmas time makes those connections all the more special!
That is why this month the challenge theme at the 12 Months of Christmas Lin-Up is to create a card specifically for someone you love.  It could be for your partner or spouse, for your son or daughter, or your parents. Maybe you have an aunt or uncle that you are really close to, or perhaps there's a special friend in your life that means the world to you. It doesn't matter who you make the card for, just that it be for someone that you love very much. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so you are included in the draw for the prize from our guest sponsor, Mari Digis
Please mention which particular loved one in your life you made the card for. If it isn't obvious, mention it in your post or write a note next to the link up for this challenge. Keep in mind that if you don't say who the loved one is, you will be exempt from qualifying for the prize.
Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win the featured paper set. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of the same three digis used by team members provided by Mari Digis. You can see them all at the main blog when you link up your own Christmas cards!
