Merry & Bright!

Well, since I'm in a Christmas Tree kind of mood today (see post below for my Christmas Tree photos! YAY!), this card just seems like the appropriate one to share for today!

It all started with two things, firstly, I was doing some not-so-secret Santa shopping for one of the crafty gift exchanges I am participating in for this Christmas and came upon the Merry & Bright Itty Bitty from unity. Ummm...I fell in love. HAHAHAHA! For reals, people. I needed this stamp! So....since I was there, and I already had a cart full of goodies for my not-so-secret Santa person...I went ahead and got it. For me. Just sayin'. LOL!

THEN...I saw this on Facebook, posted by Joss & Main.


I was SO inspired by the colors and the simplicity of the design and thought of this stamp immediately! It was like a match made in heaven!!! Thus... my card for today...

Merry and Bright

Inspired by shopping and bed sheets. Sounds like a formula for success to me! HAHAHAHA! I LOVE the way this turned out! I embossed the image with Stampendous! embossing powder in Snow (Recollections brand at Michael's - it's the same stuff).

Merry & Bright Detail

So...basically, this card just makes me happy. AND...it's Friends With Flair Friday, and that's something to be happy about, too. AND...it's just Friday, in general, so THAT is something to be happy about, TOO! AND...I have a fun birthday party to go to this weekend with wonderful friends, so that's something to be wicked happy about. AND... it's CHRISTMASTIME!!!! So that, OF COURSE, is something to be happy about!

Have a super happy day, folks! I certainly plan to!
