Believe in the Magic

I wanted to hurry up and post this card because once the boys are home from school, the computer no longer belongs to Mom!!! I actually made 10 of these this morning - figured they would be my Christmas cards to mail out this year. One problem...I get bored easily and to make more than 10 and I WILL GO CRAZY!!!!!!! HaHa!! I like variety, so I'll have to come up with something else and keep it simple to make at most 10. Anyway, I used stamp sets from PaperTrey Ink - Holiday Tree, and Inside & Out: Holiday. The kraft confetti colored cardstock is from a paper outlet (I'm trying so hard to use up my supply of "stuff" before buying new - it isn't working very well). The other colors are Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf, both from PTI. I sponged the edges with white - love the effect. My first sample of this card I didn't sew on the green layer and it definitely needed it.

Our new roof is finally done, and may I say, looks marvelous!!! The workers were extremely respectful and courteous, but I certainly won't miss the pounding!!!

I just love the beautiful simplicity of this card Linda. Simple but many details that make it so interesting like the sewing, embossing and the piercing. Really, really nice.
