woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Thursday!!!

Today's is a special one...

it's 

BACK 

TO 

SCHOOL!

And I am *really* looking forward to it! 

Don't get me wrong, I loved having my kids home all summer...We played, and camped, and hiked, had birthdays, etc.  I am just ready for our routine, our schedule and hopefully a slightly cleaner house! ;)






For my card I used the new Christmas mini album set 25 Days.  I also used the background  Declare Freedom on my blue strip- it adds a nice piece of texture to the clean design.  The paper is Cosmo, the ribbon is May Arts, and of course, my Spellbinders™ dies.

and in honor of being early for Christmas, I have THIS to give away- I'll post a winner tomorrow!!

Make sure to head yourself on over to Shemaine's blog next!






Enjoy!!
Pin It Now!

What a wonderful christmas card this is!! I'm still doubting about making my own christmas cards... just started cards making half a year ago, but I see sooo many xmas cards coming around that just don't do it for me, but this one is lovely!! Love the 'simple design', it works perfectly! And with that beautiful tree-stamp!!! Wonderful!

Hugs, Wendy
