It's beginning to look a LOT like...

CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's RIGHT! There's a tree up on the sun porch!!!!! :D Because of how soon our open house is this year (Dec. 2; I hope it's already on your calendar!!), we start early. The main common room - my studio - won't be decorated until after Thanksgiving, but the rest of the downstairs will be done by then. Mom does a room a week! :D I'm LOVING sitting at my desk,, seeing the beautiful trees out in the yard and the decorations inside! :D

So, I had to take this Christmas card's photo on the tree. I mean, it's THERE. :D

This is a card I did with a scrap from today's 12 Weeks of Christmas project. I'd REALLY love to know if you liked that video or not!

Anyway. Here's the recipe! :)

Card stock: Real Red, Gumball Green, Whisper White

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Versamark

Stamp sets: Greetings of the Season, Scentsational Season

Accessories: Fancy Favor Bigz Die, Big Shot, silver embossing powder, heat tool, basic rhinestone, SNAIL

See?? Think outside the box when you're creating - and think about challenging yourself to using only a card base plus already-punched, scrap pieces to create a beautiful card! :D (Ink, too - just no new pieces of CS cut! :D )

OK, I'm outta here. SO much to do, I'm goin' crazy! :D Have a WONDERFUL weekend, and be sure to take the time to STAMP something! Christmas is on its way! :D

It's always great to use scraps! We have an entire box of them and I've learned to check it first to see if I can avoid cutting into new cardstock.

I have two mini trees - one has my cross stitched ornaments on it, and the other one, which is smaller, has miniature ornaments on it. Now that it gets dark so early, it's great to plug in the lights. It cuts the gloom somehow.
