NOEL Jake:


Have I mentioned I LOVE Fridays????  It's true, I do ;)

And since it is Friday, I have another Christmas card to share - number nine I do believe!

Now even though I add flowers to pretty much every card I make, I still hesitate before putting on Christmas cards.  Christmas does not equal flowers to me, not at all.  We get about 5 feet of snow with not a flower to be seen.  That is *my* Christmas.

With that said, I didn't shy away from flowers - in fact I added more LOL:

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, MME and Bo Bunny papers, Recollections cardstock , Prismacolor pencils, Hero Arts lace, Recollections gems, CraftSmart Chocolate and Gold inks, Wild Orchid flowers.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, Making Memories edge distresser.

I made this card for the following challenges:  *ABC Christmas - DP,  *Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch (do not display sketch) and glitter/bling, Sparkles - lace, Winter Wonderland - bears, *Fab n Funky - pastels.

 AND...  please meet StampFairy's newest member, Mimi Easter:

Have a super wonderful Friday - cheers!!

Jake is so precious. When you use flowers on your Xmas cards my dear, just think of how beautifully you Xmas decorate with flowers, such as poinsettias. Another masterpiece creation! Have a great weekend! We are officially at the new place as of tonight. I'll talk to you when I get home, and hopefully we can get together for a visit. XOXO's
