A CHRISTMAS CARDINAL

Hi all!!! Well, I am steadily getting the rest of my Christmas cards done....I am hoping to get them all in the mail this week!! I used Cardinal Christmas set on this card, I just love how pretty this stamp is. The dsp is not Stampin' Up! because all the rest of it that I have is going to be used in my two classes this weekend and my two workshops next week - sheesh, I am going to be busy!!! I love it though!! I also did not add too many embellishments to this one (although I was tempted to!) because I don't want it to be bulky when I mail it. So, a little bit of stitching and a little bit of ribbon will have to do!!!! Today I am going to be super busy taking care of household chores and errands...I have been letting them go and now I need to get to them!! I sure hope to find some stamping time this afternoon though!!! Enjoy your day!
