Hello! You can do this!


 Hello Friends and Family! Happy Thanksgiving! 

 Boy, we are going to blink and Christmas will be here. Do you have all your shopping done? My husband and I are about half way done with our shopping. 

Christmas is my favorite holiday. The birth of Jesus. Spending time with my family.  Decorating the house with lights, mangers, inflatables and a Christmas Tree. We will be getting our tree on Sunday. We have a tradition of going out as a family and picking out a fresh tree in the forest. Do you have a favorite Christmas tradition?

This is a easy and fun card to make. It can be made with any color card stock and any DSP. I got the idea to crinkle up the cotton paper and glue it to the circle from Chelsey Christensen, who is on the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team. 

Do you have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator? If not, I hope you will consider shopping with me. Just click on the shopping link above or any of the catalogs to the right and it will take you to my shopping link at Stampin' Up!.

Thank You for taking a look at my blog. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
