Season's Greetings

Hello my friends! I hope your Thanksgiving (for those of you that celebrated) was amazing. I had to take some time off as I cook for about 30. Lots of work, but goodness so much fun. I LOVE it!

Speaking of loving things, Christmas is seriously just around the corner. I'm so excited, it'll be Sophie's 4th Christmas and I'm hoping it'll be one she remembers! I've decided to start a new tradition since we love to read so much. Starting on the 12th we are going to count down the 12 days until Christmas with a holiday book. So each night we will open and read a holiday/winter themed book. Hopefully she'll be just as excited as I am!

On to the card....i am in love with this little sweetie. I cut the card from Kraft cardstock and used a shimmery green snowflakes patterned cardstock as the backdrop. The little birdie and cage came from the April Showers Cricut cartridge.

The sentiment came from My Pink Stamper.  A little red and white twine bow and some rhinestones for bling, oh and a little faux stitching around the edges and that about does it for this one. 

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes and the Inspired by Stamping #37 photo challenge. Isn't the inspiration gorgeous?!

Thanks for stopping by and not giving up on me! With the holidays coming I don't know how much I'll be around, but I do my best to stay in touch with posts and comments!
