Be Merry and Bright

Hi!

(For my Wilson Designs Release American Classic's Card click here)

Hope you are enjoying the start to your weekend. 

I have not been feeling well lately, so I apologize for not making the rounds. I had a pretty good day Thursday, so I mustered up some energy to get crafty.  I am just now getting around to posting. 

I have another Christmas card to share. I am determined to knock as many of these out as I can.  Now if only someone would start a Halloween and Thanksgiving challenge. :-)

I love to make Christmas cards that are non-traditional  colors, but I went classic today. 
I used a Waltzingmouse sentiment from Seasons of Love and some pretty roses from my stash. I added some rhinestones near the sentiment because when I think of Merry and BRIGHT, I think of pretty shinny things like bling! What girl doesn't! :-)))  At the top of my focal point, a few pearls were added for a tad more glam. 

I used another lovely sketch by Lesley for the current Merry Monday challenge. I never have lack of mojo working with her sketches which is fabulous when you are not feeling 100%.  
I am also joining in the Rudolph Day Challenge that Sandra host.
Thanks for popping in! 
~Tammy~

Ugh! I'm sorry you're not feeling well. It's hard to get anything done when you feel BLAH. I always know I'm on the mend when I can sit down & make a card again.
I love the edge punch detail, and of course the sparklies & flowers!

What a great border!
Hopefully you are feeling better.

I am SO sorry to hear you are not feeling well, Tammy. :( You sure have a lot on your plate, and when you don't feel well, well...it's just so much harder to accomplish everything.

I LOVE this Xmas card! Adore every inch of it, and I'm super pleased that you are playing with us at the Merry Monday challenge. :) Take care, okay? Don't over do it.
