Pink Roses Thank You...




Good Monday morning!  It might be the best Monday of the year!  Sure, sure, I have to go to work right away, but the office is closed on Thursday until the new year.  Actually, it's the best (work) week of the year!  And can you believe it is only 6 more days until Christmas?!?!?!?  I hope you have all your shopping done.  Everything is wrapped and under the tree here, now all I have to do is Christmas baking on Friday - oh how I love Skor shortbread and pecan butter tarts!  I was going to start baking earlier, but between me and my husband we would have everything finished by Christmas :)

I don't know about the rest of you, but making Christmas cards up until the last minute takes the joy out of it.  It feels so great to make something other than a Holiday card!  Pink?  Check.  Flowers?  Check.  Thank you? Check.

I used Clear Dollar Stamp's Roses to Die For digi and paper set:
 Card Ingredients:  Clear Dollar Stamps Digi;  Clear Dollar Stamps papers;  Bazzill and Recollections cardstock;  Prima leaves;  Stampendous! sentiment stamp;  CraftSmart Black and Stampin' Up! Pomegranate inks; Fiskars Threading Water border punch;  Recollections pearls;  Dress It Up button;  We R Memory Keepers Referee baker's twine.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this flower card for the following challenges:  I Did It Creations and Poodles Parlour - Thank You;  Sparkles Forum and The Crafty Pad - anything BUT Christmas;  Sketchbook Saturday w Chupa - sketch #42:


Okay, I have to run!!  I am going to be late for work.
