Day 5: 12 days of Christmas

Hello again! Hope your holiday season is going well. Today is Friday and my Dad flew in last night from Wisconsin. So my siblings and their families are here with us. This year is my year to host the holidays with my Dad and I am sooo excited to have everyone here. I have been thinking about it all week. Trying to get everything ready for the cousins to play together and the adults to hang out and chat. My hubby is the best as he deals with my crazy preparing. As always there were about 100 things on my list to try and get done and I chocked off about 20 of them as this is not gonna happen!. I love to see my family for the holidays. We enjoy eachothers company so much.

So here is a card of inspiration today. .. it comes to you from.. Kelly.  This is an older one of my files but I love it what Kelly has done with it. Below the card is Kelly's "recipe" for the card.

Here is a Christmas card I made for the holiday season. The background paper is from my scrap bin (maybe DCWV?). I used a wonderful cut file from Visual Designs by Chris (Poinsettia Happy Holidays - CD00137). All of the non-patterned paper is from The Paper Temptress (from the mica/metallic line - love that paper!). I used my Scor-Pal to score lines in the leaves of the poinsettias. Then I used my i-rock (my new favorite tool) to attach various gems to the centers of the poinsettias. I also added 3 red gems to the lower left corner.

 (There is a special sale going on right now in the holiday section of the store. Did you see? Look for the "Special offer" label, put it in the cart and see your discount. The file used to create Kelly's card is on sale. You can see it here )
