I *heart* Christmas

I am THE number #1 fan of Christmas. I love everything about the holidays. I love the hustle and bustle, Christmas music, the TREE, the decorations, shopping, wrapping gifts, buying (and receiving gifts), family, Christmas dinner... I could on...

Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, September!! So I found this challenge blog called 2RedBananas, so I thought I would participate in this weeks' Banana Split Sunday.

This week the challenge is stripes and dots.

So I thought why not give it a try??? {This is where Christmas comes in} AND I also wanted to try for a "quickie" card and whip something up in like 15minutes. HAH!! Who am I fooling? This card took 1 1/4 hours. I put myself under pressure and was in panic mode. I think I will go back to making them at my leisure, whether that take 3 hours or not :)



Details :D


*Sigh* I have no card ingredients for this card as the papers are scraps from last Christmas and I threw out the chipboard embellishment container the other day - whoopsies!!!

You all forgive me, right?!?!

Happy Friday!! I will see you all on Monday as I have a busy weekend ahead...

I am all about 'leisure mode' - you can't rush these things! But truly, I may be the slowest crafter EVER. LOVE your card - Christmas makes me HAPPY!!
