Joy to the world...


Ok folks, we are officially less than ten days away from Christmas... what?! As a card maker I almost don't want to admit that at the top of my to-do list today is take Christmas cards to the post office for mailing. Yes, I am hanging my head in shame... shame I tell ya! Now all I can do is hope that the postal service isn't so busy that my cards get held up and arrive even later. Oy!

In the meantime, I'm going to keep plugging away on Christmas cards. Even if they don't get used this year it is nice to have a bit of a stash to start the next year with. Today's card features the Little Trumpet stamp from Lili of the Valley and scraps from my Christmas scrap bag. The rest are just a bunch of bits and baubs that were floating around my cluttered desk. Because I was using only things that were close at hand this card actually came together pretty quickly, which is always a good thing.

Alrighty, I'm out'ta here... laters! :)

I pretty much second everything Heidi said, even the temp. Maybe she's in Arizona too, where it's been in the 80's.

This is such a beautiful card.

I didn't get my cards mailed until yesterday and I usually mail them the first week of December. Yikes.

Sweet Card I just made enough cards with a small handful left over for surprise cards for those I'm not expecting cards from so I can sneak away and write one up :)

Ok, now if I used bits and baubles from my desk I can assure you it wouldn't look even half as good as this. I just really this this card is so elegant looking. She is very very pretty and your papers along with wood snowflake and accents just all work so nicely together. Truly, I love this card. Hugs
