Happy Holidays, TSOT144

Thursday, November 14, 2013

I have been procrastinating about making my Christmas cards this year and I don't really know why.   But now that we are nearly half-way through November mild panic has begun to set in.  I've got a half-formed plan to set aside a few days next week to concentrate on Christmas and to get me in the mood I made this card last night.

The layout for this comes from the new sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesdays.  It's got a tag on it and it's no secret that tags get me every time so I just had to play along!  I paper pieced some Christmas trees using one of the images from Jolly Holiday and stamped the sentiment from Christmas Magic on the banner.

After a bit of a cold snap the temperatures are expected to go back into the high fifties towards the end of the week.  This is great news because I really need to get the vegetable garden cleaned up for the winter and I hate working outside when it's cold.  It's also great news because I hate winter and I'm not ready for it yet!

Stamps:  Jolly Holiday, Christmas Magic (The Alley Way Stamps)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Silver Glimmer (SU)
Ink:  Pitch Black (Adirondack), Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Tag Me die (Reverse Confetti); Season of Style washi, Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon (SU); Classic Scallop Small, Classic Circle small (Spellbinders)
