We Must Begin.....

Here we are in the middle of October and like it or not Christmas is coming!  I'm actually feeling a bit stressed as there is so much I want to do this year and since I don't have a huge amount of commitments, there is no reason for me not to begin!  So with head bowed and saying a small prayer that I will be able to do more this year, here we go!



My card this morning is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" and it is a white on white card with a pop of color.  I almost wish I had used a pretty pink instead of red but it's too late now.  I used a new Anna Griffin embossing folder I purchased recently and I have to say I love the quality of the embossing!  Some red Pan Pastel and a little gold Gala Glitz for the flower center and the card is all ready to go.  Very quick and simple but it makes a statement.  The bow is white seam binding and I love how it ties up into a very pretty Christmas bow!  

OK, that is it for me this morning.  This whole week for me has been something out of the funny papers!  I get to feeling like the very last Keystone Cop coming out of the little car!  I plan to spend today and tomorrow hidden away here in my craft room, just playing until my heart is content!

GASP! This is so stunning! I love the white on white. And that flower! Yummy. I confess....I did not send cards last year. The first time in my memory that I did not! But, the good news is that I will have enough cards made this year to send out. LOL
