Hi friends! I can't believe we're just a few days from December! I loaded up my playlist with Christmas music yesterday and found myself a little overwhelmed with how fast this year has flown by... and at the same time seemed to stretch an eternity! One crazy year, and the holiday season is about to make it even crazier!
My card for today uses the new Joyous Noel set. The layered poinsettia was left over from another stamping session a few weeks ago. Katrina came up to my office the other day and saw it laying on some scrap paper and mentioned that it was really pretty, so I just had to make it into a card. The papers are from the Joyeux Noel pack from Glitz and I stamped the sentiment on a Vintage Oval die cut, stamped with the coordinating Vintage Oval Frame. Some brown paper bag matting, inked edges and a ribbon/jingle bell embellishment complete this quick little card. That little border punch came in my Mixed Media kit from the Scarlet Lime a few months back and I just love it!
Hope you're having a great week!
