Merry Christmas!!! I hope you are all settling in for your celebration with family & friends. We don't have company this year so it will be quite for us. I am super excited about the new Occasions Mini & Sale-A-Brations Mini that will go into effect on the 5th of January. I placed my preorder at the begining of the month and haven't had a chance to play with anything. But I do now! I am working on some cards for my Senior Center Class and Spring Projects for the next Lee County Library series. I usually get stuck thinking of new Ideas for the Library, I like to keep it interesting for the attendees.
Couple of news tidbits for today are the

My last Christmas Card....
I saw a wreath card on a fellow demonstrator's website but don't remember who. I had to try to make it. It is done with the Pine Cone from Ornamental Pine Set. You punch a circle from a post it and them stamp around the circle overlapping the post-it. I used two colors and my wreath is fuller than the one that I saw. I punched small circles from scraps of Red Glimmer paper and added a bow. I did this card on a piece of Whisper White Stamped in Red. I added a background piece of Real Red to give it a bit of color. Hope you enjoy.
Have a Peace filled Christmas and a Bright & Happy New Year.
Until next time......Do one thing today that makes YOU happy!
