before Christmas Eve. No pressure at all! I thought being retired would put me ahead of the game. Not so! Where does the time go and what am I doing with all of the extra I was supposed to have? I still have a few gifts to buy, I have to wrap everything, I found I needed some more cards so they are in the works, the tree has got to go up yet and any decorating inside needs to be done. On the finished side is the outside is done - not much, just a lighted wreath and a large vase and birdbath decorated. Most of my shopping is done - I love cyber shopping! I have lots of stuff baked and frozen. So I am making progress.
My card today is a case of Kitty Kraft. I used the window die and some paper I put through the crimper for the curtain. I then punched the bottom with a Martha Stewart punch. I also used a MS punch to punch out the ferns and then some gemstones I turned into holly berries. I put it all on some blue sparkly paper I have had for years. It was very easy except I got very sticky putting the fern branches down. Maybe the Xyron next time.
