It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Boy, the stores are all out in Christmas decorations already! They are beautiful but I miss references to Christ our LORD in most all that I see. I did play a bit tonight since I got no stamping done last week. This card uses the Pattern Paper technique showcased in the Christmas magazine in Scor-Pal. It sure creates a fun look to my card, don't you think??
Anyway, I used the Joy of Christmas stamp set, my Scor-Pal, Bordeaux and Jardin Moss PH inks, Just For You hostess set, and burgundy and white cardstocks.

I have almost 75 Christmas cards made for sending out. I will have to purchase stamps and envelopes and hope to do that soon. Are you ready?

I have already received a Christmas card from my friend Chris in Lusk, WY along with some plastic vitamin containers. She made a potpourri container for me and gave me a couple to try my hand. It may not happen before Christmas as I have much to do. I start teaching classes next week, have a craft table at a Farmer's Market on the 11th, a craft table at Curves on the 15th, and 3 Christmas parties (with gifts for the white elephant exchange for all) by the 20th! My brother and his wife will be here on the 18th and leave the 21st. I still need to get some crafts made and work on my Christmas gifts! I have some ideas but it's just getting to them! So, how are you coming along with your Christmas gifts? Are you making more this year? I also have 5 fudge recipes to make as gifts since I'm making most of our gifts. I will post these on my Livin' Hot blog if they turn out. So, I hope you're getting ready for the day of celebrating Christ's birth!
