Greetings of the season


I'm so glad that the world didn't end yesterday... it would have put a total cramp in my holiday plans, LOL! Though it did snow all day and it is expected to keep snowing all weekend so in a way I feel like I'm dealing with my very own winter Armageddon... is that too melodramatic? ;)

As I was making this card yesterday, and cleaning up my desk a bit as I'm trying to stay more on top of that, it dawned on me that I only have two more Christmas cards to make before the season ends this year... crazy! Two cards and it will be time for me to put away my Christmas embellies, papers and stamps until next year rolls around, I can hardly believe it. Now to figure out which two stamps will have a shot at getting on cards this year... the pressure! 
This Lili of the Valley Christmas Robins stamp is actually another one that has been sitting on my desk for a couple of years waiting. It finally became the perfect time to color it up because I wanted to make a special card for my aunt who loves birds. Now I just have to brave the roads to give it to her along with her Christmas present. :)

I hope that everyone is having a great last weekend before the big celebration. I'll be working today and it should be busy, busy, busy which helps the day speed along.
