Working on the Christmas list...

Good day everyone,

I can't believe it's Friday already......and another week closer to that magical time of year.

Recently I was fortunate enough to be the winner at UnstampaBelles Challenge and this week received my fabulous prize pac from Blue Edge Crafts.   
What a wonderful surprise to get so many gorgeous stickers and decoupage sheets.  
I immediately started making a few cards, working down my Christmas list.

I've used a beautiful decoupage for my card today.  This came together so quickly. 
 I'm thrilled with the outcome and as in most cases it's so much better irl.

Raffia is from Hobby Lobby, paper is Recollections, embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Kraft paper used for the mat.

I would like to enter the following challenges,
4 Krafty Girlz Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations Challenge #249 - Ready for the holidays
Creative Moments Challenge #30 - Anything Goes CAS

Thanks for stopping by today,
Pat K xx

Pat, I agree with you that this week has just gone by too fast and there are just a little over 30 days left until Christmas. Your card is gorgeous. Love the bright blue paper, and the image is just beautiful. Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I'm sorry I'm not keeping up with you - life is just a little stressful and complicated at the moment.
