Celebrate the Warmth of Christmas

Sunday, September 25, 2016


It certainly IS looking a lot like Christmas -- in all the craft stores at least!  That makes me happy because I make Christmas cards all year long!  I love the warmth of Christmas - the aroma of pines and wood burning fireplaces, the decorations that just seem to make our home warm and just the spirit of anticipation and excitement for the miracle to come!  That's certainly something to celebrate!!

For my card, I chose this beautiful Carta Bella Special Delivery pattern paper.  I also go to play with a new stamp set and die collection I bought from Concord & 9th: Take a Bough.  The frame die is from My Favorite Things and  cute little rusty bells are from Paper Sweeties!



 Thanks to these challenges for the wonderful inspiration:
