A Very Merry Christmas

Good morning friends!  So sorry for being away the beginning of this week but I have some fun stuff to show you the next couple of days! 

This Christmas Wreath image really caught my eye during the Doodle Pantry new release so I just had to use it.  I combined the image with patterned paper from Echo Park's Seasons Greetings and the Pollycraft Monday Challenge sketch to make this card.  I just think this turned out to be a great 'traditional' Christmas card.

Make sure you check out all of Doodle Pantry's new releases by clicking HERE to go to their blog.  There is also a list of winners from the 12 Day of Christmas Blog there.

Alright, tomorrow you are going to see the newest sketch from Sketches by Carly for which I themed the card perfectly for Veteran's Day.  Then on Saturday is my Sweet Stop post...another cute card if I don't say so myself!  Finally, keep check back as next week on Tuesday is the Clear Dollar Stamps Digi release.  Fun stuff coming up for sure!

Thought of the day:  Faith in God includes faith in his timing.

Cute card, Lorie! Love the wreath. Wouldn't that be pretty on a "door" card? I can't believe how close we are to Christmas. It's scary!
