Merry Christmas!


A couple of weeks ago I needed a card for my husband's boss. It was getting late and I needed something quick. So I pulled out my trusty Crafty Secret's Christmas Journaling booklets. No stamping required! I made a long card which I don't do too often! It is always a bit intimidating! I Cuttlebugged the bottom half and added another "Sugared" snowflake. I added a vintage button and a scrap of fabric I had in my stash. Since it was so bulky, it wouldn't fit in a regular envelope. So.......I made my own. I made a two button closure with twine. It wasn't going to be mailed, so It really didn't need to be secure......just decorative.













I have been a busy little bee the last few days, cooking, baking, cleaning, setting the table, and shoveling..........lots of shoveling! It has been too, too much snow for my liking! I have such a backache from all of it. I pray my sister makes it in from Wisconsin. It wouldn't be Christmas Eve without her. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed.....
Since I will be MIA for a couple of days, I wanted to take this time to wish you a very Merry Christmas!!!!
