Jingle....

Hello!  Today I have a card in honor of my sweet friend, Tenia!  She is the featured stamper over on SCS today.  I chose THIS card in her gallery to be inspired by.  I really loved the layout of this card.  I centered my vertical banner, changed the colors and papers, but kept the general layout of her card.  I used some DP from Simple Stories 25 Days Of Christmas collection.  I used the Sugared embossing folder from Sizzix.  I then sponged distress inks over the raised pattern.  I added some green burlap twine from May Arts and a rusty jingle bell.

Are you all ready for the holidays?  I don't have to do anything for Thanksgiving.  My mom always puts on a wonderful Thanksgiving spread every year.  I show up with my side dish and enjoy the day.  So nice when you have kids to not have to worry about a big shin dig for lots of people.  As far as Christmas...totally not ready!  My kids haven't really given me a lot of ideas this year.  Usually, I am almost done with shopping by now!  I am going to start my decorating tomorrow! LOVE decorating the house for Christmas.  I usually clean each room really good and then put out the decorations for each room.  Tomorrow, I will start with my dining room.  My dining room is shabby chic in decor and so is the tree.  Fun, frilly and girly!  I am going to make some new vintage ornaments for the tree this year. Will try to post some photos this week of my holiday decor!

Thanks for stopping by!

Emily, You'll have to take pictures of your decorations! And...this is my first year after 20 years of marriage hosting Thanksgiving! Yes..crazy I know! I do Christmas brunch, but my first Thanksgiving!

Love your card...especially the embossing with the slight inking. Fabulous!
