A Golden Christmas

Hello Friends!

The holiday season has officially begun!  Can you feel it?  About a week ago one of my dear friends wrote and asked if I was familiar with the musical, "Mame."   Why yes, I wrote back.   She went on to write how much she was looking forward to Christmas this year.   Well Santa dear we're in a hurry! For we need a little Christmas, we need a little music, need a little laughter, need a little singing, ringing through the rafters.  We need a little Christmas now!

Let's start by looking at this card made especially for you my friends.   I'm inviting you to get in the mood.  Put on some music, have a hot beverage, and sing or hum that catchy tune from Mame.    See, now you're in the Christmas spirit!   My card today features a sneak peek of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps new November ReleaseSpectacular Snowflakes and Coordinating Dies.   Oh my goodness friends they are some kinda gorgeous.  Big, medium, and small snowflakes with coordinating dies.    I used the small snowflakes and die today.
A beautiful ivory card decorated with flat pearls, pale champagne rhinestones, and liquid pearls.  My ribbon is light and airy with a hint of gold.   I did not pop up the snowflakes so this card could actually be mailed.   The sentiment is from our previous September release, Christmas Silhouettes.   I stamped with Stampin' Up's Soft Suede ink and sponged the outside of the panel with it as well.   I have talked with you about my desire to use up my designer papers.   I'm being a good girl Santa and doing just as I promised.  This paper is from several years ago.   I believe the name is "Merry Christmas" and is from Craft 'n Craftin' (I think).   I thought it was so prefect to use this way.  I love the idea of creating my Scandinvian looking tree with these snowflakes.   Hope you do too.

So haul out the holly, think about those fruitcakes, and the lovely cards you'll be sending to family and friends.  Come join us this Thursday evening at Splitcoaststampers for our November Release Party on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Forum won't you.   We need to talk turkey (giggle).

See you there!
