be merry...

Whew! I don't know where my day went yesterday...I had so many plans and didn't seem to get it all done (my usual unrealistic expectations again). I did get all my out of state gifts wrapped and packaged so Mike can take them to the UPS store (glad I pawned that off on him, lol!).

I didn't even make it into my stamp room (BUMMER!), but I did clean off my table so I could photograph the cards I made on Saturday...so I could have something to post today *smile*

I realized a few days ago that I don't have many Christmas stamp sets...I sold a lot of my sets over the summer thinking I would replace them with something new and exciting... but unfortunately, Christmas really snuck up in me this year, so I just had to use what I had. I used my Merry & Bright set from SU! I just love snowmen, and the one from this set is pretty cute. I also used some of my hoarded Designer Paper from last year (also from SU!), and a button from my stash.
And I wanted to post this picture of Pete...my kitty, because I thought it was cute.

Okay I am off to work...Enjoy your day!

Supplies used (SU! unless noted): Merry & Bright/Warm Words stamp sets; Kraft/Certainly Celery/Real Red/Very Vanilla cardstock; Basic Black/Old Olive ink; Real Red/Certainly Celery SU! marker; Circle/Scallop punches; Olive Button (retired SU!); Stardust Stickles (Michael's)

Gretchen, I adore this card!!! You've used my favorite things ... Merry & Bright stamp set (sad to see it retiring) and Dashing DP! This layout is fantastic! Brilliant design!
