It's Christmas ....

.... well, it will be in just about 5½ months!!!  Good afternoon all, isn't it great when you wake up and feel full of energy and the joy of life - well that's me today.  So much better than the last few days.  I've been playing in my craft room this morning and I've a Christmas card to share with you today:

It's Christmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: PTI - City Scene Christmas Sentiments
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Mossy Meadow
Dies: Memory Box - Sparkling Tree Tile
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Mossy Meadow, Perfect Plum; Sequins


I've used the colours from CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#83, the theme at Merry Monday - MM#117 is sequins and the layout is from our 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown July Blog Hop - 52CCT27-14. The sequins are as close as I could get to the colours. I used my new Memory Box die to cut out the Christmas Tree and adhered a panel of Mossy Meadow card behind.  I added three sequins for sparkle and finished the front with a simple sentiment.  On the inside I cut a panel of Perfect Plum and on the white card stamped a sentiment and fun image of Santa.  I love this new die and will probably use it again soon.

Bye for now!  Hope you're having a good week.
