Merry Christmas!

Hi Friends!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!  How are you
coming along on all the Christmas festivities?  I
still have some baking and shopping to do, but
I think I have most of the preparations under
control.  I just received some notices in my email
this morning, so I informed my husband I ordered
some Christmas goodies for myself...hehehe!  Do
you do that, too?!

I am entering the above card over at the
Paper SweetiesThey have an awesome design
team with the sweetest stamps!  Go over
and take a look for you won't be disappointed!
I did some gold embossing on this card around
the Christmas tree and the snowflake buttons.  The
gold snowflake behind the tree is actually a tag
I bought at Bath and Body Works!  Hey, I'm thinking
whatever works, I'll use it...hehehe!  I think it
went well with the other little snowflakes.

Here is the sketch challenge that we were to follow:

Well, I have some more cleaning to do and a little
treat bag I want to make up for my friend's dog. 
Oh, we do spoil our dogs, lol!  She has the sweetest
bichon frise that I've ever seen.  I just want to scoop
her up and take her home with me!

Ok, I have a couple more cards I want to post, but
will do later.  Take care and thanks so much for
dropping by today, hugs!
