Not Quite Christmas

I have something to share with you today.  The stamped image was among those I was madly stamping the week before Christmas.  I decided that this would work for a Christmas thank you.  I haven't decided whether to stamp a small Thanks and punch it out to add to the front or just leave it blank and write my thanks inside.

This was so quick and easy!  I stamped the holly on a scrap of Whisper White and colored it in with markers.  Then I placed it in the Designer Frames Oval Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot and used my Paper Snips to cut the oval out.  I had a large white oval on the table and discovered it was a perfect fit behind the frame.  The little bow is attached with a glue dot.  Layered it on a Snow Burst panel, then Real Red on a Whisper White card.

I really love this little image.  Now I need to try the others in this set.

It's been another quiet day here.  I even got some sewing projects taken care of.  It's nice to be caught up... in that quarter anyway.  Tomorrow the boys will be back and all the excitement that comes with them.

I'm so glad you stopped by.

What a pretty card front, Bonnie. It looks like something I'd frame and keep on display as decor.

Not only quick and easy, but quick and elegant too! I think you should leave the sentiment off IMHO.
