Merry & Bright Holiday Card

  Just taking a little break from my holiday preparations to share with you a little Christmas card I whipped up last week. I used this sketch from Scrapbook Circle and I am entering it into the S.W.A.T Christmas card challenge. I am also entering this in Paper Issues current challenge.
 Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Heidi Swapp), washi tape (American Crafts), stamp (Studio Calico), sticker (My Mind's Eye) ink (Stampabilities), doily (The Paper Studio)twine (Timeless Twine), punches (EK Success and We R Memory Keepers) and pen (Project Life)
I love using my card scraps to create a matching envelope seal. It just gives a slight hint of what to expect.
   Now, I better get back to my holiday To-Do list. I want to make mint truffles tonight. I already made the fluff this afternoon. Then, I have a scarf for my mom to finish, a ball for Buster to sew close, to my Dec. Daily page for today, ornaments to make, etc. I am still debating if I will have time to make a skirt before Christmas Eve. I almost forgot, I have to bathe a little pooch.
One thing I hope I get for Christmas is Snow. I don't feel like Christmas without it. It is raining at the moment and it felt so wrong looking at Christmas light without the cold white stuff.
I would like to say Merry Christmas to all my blog readers and friends.
God Bless,


  1. Hi Mandi. Lovely card! I want snow too but we will be getting rain for the holiday!! Merry Christmas!!

  2. This is so pretty, Mandi!! I really love that red star paper. I wish we would get snow for Christmas, but down here in the south we rarely get snow, much less snow on Christmas! The one and only time it snowed on Christmas, we happened to be out of town which was sad. :(
