Happy Wednesday! Only a few more days until Christmas! Can you believe it?! Seriously, the days are whipping by! Jacob's Christmas concert is today at school! Last night at 8:15 he announced that he needs a Santa hat and sunglasses for said concert. We have one Santa hat in our house and it belongs to Jacob's older brother. Needless to say when I suggested he wear his older brother's hat, said older brother had a few things to say about that. Oh goodness. The fun never stops!

I hope you're having a great week! I think my Christmas shopping is almost done. My cards are in the mail and now I just need to wrap. I feel a little more ready this week than I did last week! We've been having some great weather here in Southern Ontario and it sure doesn't feel like Christmas is right around the corner. I think we are supposed to have double digit temperatures this weekend which is almost unheard of around here in December!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Our fabulous hostess this week is the amazing Colour Artist Rita Wright! Rita can use a marker like no one else! She makes such adorable images! Her card this week is so cute!!! You need to check it out!
I do love the paper from the Pretty Petals DSP Stack. I love the colours and the patterns. I think I've used this combo before....sorry!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Calypso Coral (though I think it may not be Calypso Coral!)

Happy Wednesday! We are one step closer to Christmas and I'm one step closer to a nervous breakdown!!! I am almost done with the shopping or at least as much as I can do! I have my Christmas cards made I just need to find a few minutes to sit down and deal with them! That's what I'm struggling with!!! Then there's the wrapping...ugh! When I was little I loved wrapping. Now, not so much!
We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week! Our amazing hostess if the one and only Jen Mitchell! I love Jen and her amazing cards! They are just so beautiful! I hope you take the time to go and visit her blog!
Jen's sketch threw me for a bit. I don't do banners so well. I think I would rather a circle than a banner!!! I needed another Christmas card and had just created some place cards for a Christmas lunch I'm hosting next week so I decided I would incorporate the same vellum die cuts that I used on the place cards into my card!
They don't show up so well in this photo...sorry about that! I really do enjoy the Sleigh Ride Edgelits. They are so sweet and cut out so nicely!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Jingle all the Way
Other: Anytime Tags Die Set 2 (Lil Inkers), Sleigh Ride Edgelits, Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals
