We Wish You a Merry Christmas



When I saw the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch, I knew immediately what I wanted to do.  I die cut two of the vented PaperSmooches dies and placed them on my card base.  I then finished up the card with the sentiment strip as well as thePaperSmooches poinsettia dies.  The final touch were some gems.  Nothing like a crisp pop of color against black.  

Tomorrow I'll be back with another PaperSmooches Christmas card.  Happy last day of September.  This week we'll be going to a college planning meeting for Ryan and a First Communion class for Marcel. Time is flying by these days.  It's hard to believe that in less than two years we'll be sending Ryan to college. I'm sure in nine years time I'll be saying the same thing about Marcel leaving for college.
