Happy Wednesday all!!! I got to play my first game of Bunco last night - what a fun night out that was!!! And, I got to meet lots of new people, and they were all really nice and fun to be around! I did not get home until after 2am - too much talking, lol!!!  But, worth it, I really enjoyed myself!!!  And, as you can see by the picture, I actually got to wear the crown because I got BUNCO, lol!!!! 
Really fun!!! Today I want to share a card with you that I made for my downline meeting shoebox swap - love doing these, I have a very talented group of ladies in my downline so there are always some beautiful cards I get to make! I chose a Christmas card since our theme was holidays.  I used one of my all-time favorite stamp sets called Welcome Christmas because it reminds me of all the things I love during the holidays - family time, decorating the tree, hanging the stocking, and playing in the snow!  And, the sentiment is just beautiful! I stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock, trimmed around it, and popped it up on dimensionals - one of my customers asked me during a workshop (I took it as a sample) if we had the punch, lol!! It WOULD make a great punch, wouldn't it??!  I paired the set with the Jolly Holiday designer series paper - sooooo pretty!!! The bottom of the DSP is punched with the Scalloped Edge Border Punch.....looooove it!   And, if you look really close, you can see that the tree shimmers - that is because I added some Iridescent Ice to give it some sheen and it looks great IRL! Very simple card, but I think it turned out pretty and my gals really liked it.  This is definitely a card that could be mass produced for everyone on your Christmas card list because it is simple enough to to do a lot of them and pretty enough to bring a smile to their face!! I will leave you with the recipe and if you would like any of  the products used on this card, you can go to my online store right now and order them
:-)  And, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me, I am always willing to answer any questions you may have!  Now, I am off to work on projects for the weekend Harvest Festival at Hodges Nursery - we are holding this wonderful event to raise money for the Durham Blossoms Relay for Life Team of which I am honored to be a part.  Come on out and support us in stamping out cancer! There will be lots of vendors, prizes, make 'n takes, demonstrations, and the Blossoms are going to have a booth serving fabulous Tritip sandwiches of which all proceeds go to the Team.  I hope to see you all there!!!

Cute card! I love that stylized greeting. I'm glad you had fun at Bunco. I've been playing with the same group of ladies for about 8 years. Very fun!
