The Night Before Christmas

I know, it isn't Christmas Eve yet, and thank goodness for that because I am far from ready!!! I have seen some challenges in the past asking to use non-holiday stamps and turn them into a Christmas card. As soon as I saw this image from Fresh Brewed Designs called Night Owl I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This owl brought to mind that wonderful poem "The Night Before Christmas." I thought of the line at the beginning: "And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter's nap." If you want to read the whole poem, check out my post on the Fresh Brewed Blog. The sentiment was one of our freebies in the 12 Days of a Sentimental Christmas. I hope you had scooped all of them up because you should now have a wonderful array of holiday sentiments.

I finished baking all my Christmas cookies...finally. They really seemed like a chore this year. Now I need to finish up my shopping and do more wrapping. It's not like I don't know when Christmas is every year, but I never seem to ever be ready!!!! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh I totally agree... we know it is coming... but are never ready... even when we plan and try. I start baking on Thursday... late I know, but some milk and egg free foods don't stay moist as long as others :D

Your card is ADORABLE!!! I love how you paired it with the poem and the plaid paper is awesome!

LOTS of hugs!
