Christmas Joy

Hi all!

Sorry for the long absence. I sure do miss having more time to craft but homeschooling and life have really kept me busy! Tonight I wanted to share a card I made for Christmas. I know Christmas may seem like it's still far off but it tends to sneak up on me every year so I'm stocking up on cards already. I'm entering the card in two different websites. The first is the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge site. They have a "happy holidays or Christmas" challenge going. The other is the Festive Friday site. This site is perfect if you are needing inspiration for Christmas cards. They're challenge was to make a Christmas card with a bit of whimsy to it. Here's my card: I started out by die cutting a circle (Apothecary Label) on some My Mind's Eye Merry Little Christmas pattern paper. I used a Sizzix die for the Christmas tree and added some stickles to the tree. I added some twine and then die cut the sentiment that is also from Sizzix. I added the stickles to the sentiment as well and the card was done. Cute card to make and didn't take tons of time, either.

Be back soon!
