A Little Grundge, A Little Elegance, A little Christmas!

Good morning friends!  I'm here to share another Christmas card I have made for the upcoming holiday season.  I know it's early, but I do get distracted and go off in different directions, so I need to do this while I'm at least a little focused!    My card uses a sentiment from Heartfelt Creations and lots of Spellbinders dies of course.  You know I have to have them on most everything I do.  Some pretty sparkle and bling, some pretty paper and I'm off and running.  I even used a gold leaf pen on the edges of the green oval layer although it's pretty hard to see in my photo.   But trust me it's there.  It's also on the burgundy layer.  I love those pens and think they add such an elegant feel to projects.

So what are you doing today; do you have to work or is this a day off for you?  I'm planning another day in my craft room but as always, that's subject to change.  It seems I have really good intentions and then I run a wheel off and have to go see if I can find it in the bushes.  So whatever you are doing today, I wish you well and remember ..... take time to breathe!

Supplies:  Canson watercolor paper, Prima paper, music paper, cardstock, Spellbinders, Prima bling, gold leafing pen, Ranger Distress Inks, Zip Dry Glue, Heartfelt Creations Stamps

It's a beauty!!! You're smart to get some Christmas Cards done early! I havent started any yet. Enjoy your monday in your craft room! I'm off to a semi-local craft store that is having a huge sale... she is going from brick & mortar store to just an on-line store. So sad, but the sales are great right now.
