Aside from one rainy day this past week we have had some fantastic weather here in Massachusetts. The sun has been shining, the temperatures have been more like June than October and it's been truly wonderful. And it's all coming to and end. Starting today fall is back and while fall is nice, it really just means that winter is not that far behind. Good news for some, but bad news for a snow hater like me.
One thing I do like about this time of year is making Christmas cards. I've been meaning to make a card for the Festive Friday challenge and finally found some time on Saturday to get in my craft room. The Sketch Saturday provided a nice layout for my idea too.
I was inspired by the colors, the red ribbon and the greenery so I fussy cut some pine branches then added some red circles to simulate berries. A little ribbon, a simple sentiment and I was done. The white chairs sure give an impression of white space, so I made sure to leave lots on my card.
Well that's it for me. Thanks for stopping by!
