Merry Christmas to All!

Good Monday morning; I hope you had a great weekend! I am slowly plugging away at all the things that need to be done before Christmas...time is running out! One of the things that I didn't get done this year is mailing Christmas cards...that is pretty sad coming from a cardmaker! I stive to be like Martha and I always seem to fall short; maybe I need "staff"!

Friday night there was a wonderful package waiting for me when I got home from work. It was the "reveal" from the Secret Sister swap. My Secret Sister was no surprise to me, since I hosted this round, but the package sure was. What a wonderful assortment of goodies! A package like that can only be chosen by another stamper....

I have all the goodies layed out in my work area, and they distracted me this morning. Instead of working on my list, I "had" to dig in and make a card. I figure I was able to satisfy my urge to create and also to wish my blogging friends a "Merry Christmas"!

Sentiment: PTI Communique Curves
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: SU! So Saffron, Basic Grey "Jovial" Collection
Embellies: Hero Arts Poinsettia, Me & My Big Ideas Rhinestones
Extras: Scor-Pal, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, PTI Dressform Die/True Black Felt

Friends and fellow bloggers, this one is dedicated to you! May you have the merriest of holiday seasons and a happy, healthy new year!

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your day!

Angela, beautiful card. It is so much fun to dig into a new stash of goodies. Love the dp and the poinsettia is gorgeous.

Gorgeous! I love that plaid DP. It really goes well with the So Saffron.

Gorgeous card, my friend! Love this CAS style with that striking plaid!

And I'm right there with you -- not only have I not mailed a single card, but I haven't mailed a single gift, either!!

Glad to hear you had a nice bunch of goodies -- you deserve to be pampered, too!

this is fabulous! so different from your usual style, but i love it! the plaid with that die, super cute!!

Donelda said...

I too LOVE this. That plaid dp is awesome and you did such a great job of combining all the elements into a super CAS card!! Oh, and I choose to not "do" Christmas cards this year because I knew I had started too late and it would just stress me out. I am hoping to make xmas cards throughout the year this year and then I won't be stressed.
