Christmas underway****

Can you believe how fast Christmas is coming up on us!!!!!!  I know the stores have had xmas mdse out for a few weeks but they get earlier every year but I seem to get later doing the things to get ready for the holiday season.  I have my craft room moved but still need to do alot of organization to it.  Would help if i would quit buying things to fill it up!!!! 

Well i got up this am and decided to create!!!!  I pulled out the Jolly Holiday cart and a set of new xmas stamps I bought and this is what I came up with.  I also did a layer from Elegant Edges to add just a little to the card design (A2 size)  The tree (3.5in) and Bird (1.75) is from JH.  I used my stamp on the background and stamped on white and cut the penants for the sentiment.

This is the first time I have used my iphone to take a picture and I was pretty pleased with the clarity!!!  Of course my new room has plenty of light and I am sure that helped!!!!

Well thanks for stopping by and taking a look!!! I hope you will come back and see what else I will be working on for the next few weeks.  I really want to get back into the swing of things!!!
