Forevermore Christmas:

Good morning all.  Hope you enjoyed our birthday blog hop (you can find the post here).  Sshhhh - I have yet to go hopping, but I am doing that next.

The weather has been absolutely stunning this past few weeks.  Hot, hot days and nice cool evenings.  The days are definitely getting shorter - I am up at 5:45 in the mornings and now I am up before the sun.  Some might find that a bit depressing, I find it cozy :)

So last week I made a 10 minute turned into 30 minute card.  I decided to give it another go.  Unfortunately this 10 minute card turned into a 60 minute card, but still much quicker than my usual.

Maybe my bow is overkill??  Either that or it looks like the bow is eating the Christmas tree.  Either way, it packs a punch ;)
Card Ingredients:  My Mind's Eye paper,  DCVW Recollections cardstock, K&Co chipboard sentiment, Celebrate It ribbons, Tim Holtz Muse Tokens, Martha Stewart Garnet glitter, Recollections pearls.  Tools:  sewing machine, Labels 4 Nestie.  

I made this Christmas card for the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp and Show - no rules, Card Crafters Circle - rich colors, My Time to Craft and Crafty Ann's- Christmas, The Stamp Man - metal,  Merry Monday - sketch:

Have a wonderful day and thanks for the visit.
