A CHRISTMAS CARD!

Hi all!! WOW! It sure has been busy around here! I have been cleaning out my craft room, moving to a new room, painting, putting in new furniture, etc. so I have not been making much of anything at all BUT will have a beautiful new creative space this week and plan on hitting it hard for Christmas!!! My son is home for Thanksgiving so we have lots of family time planned! In the meantime, I thought I would share a card I made for a contest - it did not win, but I like it anyway, lol! It uses one of my favorite sets called Holiday Lineup, which I tend to reach for alot when making cards. And, these elves just crack me up! And, I love to sure Dazzling Diamonds on their beards, I think it looks fabulous! The contest was to create a simple card with glitter - this was my sample. This is a variation on a similar card I made during a workshop I recently held and it was a hit! I hope to share some more cards this week, AND some pics of my brand new creative space! Thanks for stopping by, I love to hear from you!
