Crafty Secrets Card


Hi all ~ I cannot believe that next week is Christmas!!! Although it is really cold here and we have had awful weather with the rain constantly coming down for the last two weeks. Now we are in the 30's, which for Bama is cold. I cannot imagine living up north where it is truly cold. My hat's off to those up north.
I believe I have finished with my Christmas shopping. Although I still have to go to the grocery store to get yummers for Christmas day. I will be cooking on the 24th...something that I always have fun doing. I love the holidays! Especially the family part! When we all get together and open presents and sing carols (in odd voices) and then it's time to eat the wonderful dishes we have all contributed to making...yes, everyone this year is doing their part and bringing something yummy to eat. It used to be that my sister and I did all of the cooking...well, we have added some elves...so to speak...our DD's...LOL!

This card is very vintage. One of my favorites. The Santa came from Crafty Secrets Journal that I bought from Sharon at No Time To Stamp. The cardstock is SU's Real Red. I used Flourishes Finishing Touches little slide that looks like a belt buckle...the ribbon also came from Flourishes. I used Glitter Dots too. Not really much to this because the image was easy peasy.

I have another post before Christmas and I hope I can get it in on time. Have a great weekend all!
