Howdy stamparistas!
Are you enjoying this TGIF? I sure am... even if it is wet and rainy here. I think that is just a sign to spend a bit more time inside card making today... ;)
Oh and I know it got put off due to the blog hop but yes, I did watch Glee this week and the rivalry between Sue and Shue cracks me up plus the song numbers were fab-o yet again... sigh, I still love this show. It just makes me laugh. :)
So my card today is from the new Xmas Sweeties set that is now available over at The Greeting Farm. I thought Anya would make a cute Mrs. Santa Claus and I even made my own text pattern paper by printing out the lyrics from the old Nat King Cole Christmas song that I just adore. Anyone else out there know the Mrs. Santa Claus song? I highly recommend google searching it if you've never heard it... :)

Such a great idea with the lyrics. Love the circles and the little felt tree.

I finally watched Glee last night and talk about another LMAO situation! Jane Lynch cracks me up! Can't believe how diabolical Mrs. Shue is with the "baby"!
