Festive Friday: Peace Love Joy


Man...this year has flown by!  We're down to our second to last challenge at Festive Friday!  How are your holiday preparations going?  I'd like to be done with Christmas shopping by the end of November but I haven't really started much shopping. I'll need to hit the on-line shops hard to make that happen.

I started out making a card with a wreath for today's inspiration, but I didn't like it at all and it ended up in in the garbage.  I ended up with a very, very CAS card inspired by the wreath leaves and the bow.
Please pop on over to the Festive Friday blog and check out the gorgeous design of our designers as well as our super talented guest designer:  Mary Beth.
