Simple Joy

It was after 1am this morning when I finished my card and it hit me, boy is this a simple one! Then I started reflecting on this holiday season and the true meaning of it. I so often allow myself to get caught up is all the stress of it all that I lose the joy that is Christmas. I don't have many gifts bought, but that's okay. I still need to mail out cards and bake a few more cookies, but if it doesn't get done, that's okay. I have my boys (yes, hubby is one of the boys!) and that's all that matters to me. Thank you Lord for entrusting them to me, I sure hope I don't mess up!!!!!

My card uses a Fresh Brewed Designs image, Pretty Little Christmas Tree. It happens to be today's featured image too and on sale for only $1!!! Be sure and get yours today! This card is also a reminder of the Anything Goes Christmas challenge going on over at the Fresh Brewed Blog this month. Be sure and check out all the details HERE.

I followed the sketch, or at least my interpretation of it, from The House That Stamps Built.

I had the same epiphany this morning as I was lying in bed, freaking out about all the things that I have yet to do. Who cares if my Christmas cards go out as new year's cards ... I know I need to slow down and enjoy the season. {{Deep breath}} Cute card for this one.
