Christmas Wishes

Hi!

Just a quick post...I thought I would share a card I made that took longer than I had EVER intended. I needed a Christmas Card to be included with a gift. I thought it would be cute to "hang" my ornaments. Needless to say the whole process from paper piecing and lining up took way longer than it should have. I think I will go back to my multi-layer fussy bow cards now! Ha! 

Anywho...here is the not so quick extra card I needed! 
 The stamped images are from Paper Smooches - All Yule Need. I still had it out from last week, and that is what sparked my card today. We won't talk about the condition of the crafty space of late. Hence the reason why this set was still out. Ugh! Need more time in the day. Can I get a heck ya from anyone else? :-)))
I wanted to set my Brown Cover Weight Kraft panel off to the right. I was feeling a bit off today anyway...ha! Just kidding. I thought it would give some visual interest. Hung my ornaments with some very frustrating white twine that frays like...well this is a family friendly blog...*wink* Let's just say that is part of what was taking so long. I got it fixed right, and when I flipped it over to add adhesive then it frayed (AGAIN) as I pressed down I guess. This girl was not about to start over. Oh well, usually the recipients are tickled to receive something handmade! 

Well, I am going to end the madness now.

I hope you have a Fabulous Friday!  I think I will share it a few places.  Just B Creative - December Linky Party2 Creative Chicks - Christmas/Winter, Sunday {Fun}day - December Linky Party,  D.L. Art - Thankful Thursday, and I might throw it in at Paper Smooches Sparks Picture Perfect. (So not perfect on the account of colors, but hanging ornaments...right?)

I'm with you... not so good at hanging ornaments either - I would have cheated and turned them into a banner. You done good! Beautiful!
