Vintage Christmas

Hello there! I'm back to share another Christmas card, and this one uses no stamps at all.


That "tweet" tag is from Cavallini & Co., and it comes pre-glittered, and with the twine attached. That made this card very easy to put together! A couple of die-cut borders from K & Co. beneath it, and pretty papers from Basic Grey, and bam, it was finished. 

Have I wished this out loud before:  that Thanksgiving was mid-November, so the Christmas season was a smidgen longer than it already is?? Like everyone else, I'm in a mad dash to "get it all done", and I'm not really able to thoroughly enjoy and soak in what the season is truly all about. And...I'm an organized gal, too! Can't even imagine the stress if I were not organized. 

Last night, after work, I spent two hours mostly finishing up shopping for gifts. Four stores, and my last stop was Home Goods. Now, THERE'S a happy place (besides Ikea, and any crafting stores)!! It just feels good to be there. :-) I found Kahlua Peppermint Mocha bagged coffee for $5.99 each (not long ago, I saw them on eBay 2 for $22!!!!) = score! Some eggnog-flavored coffee jumped into my basket, too.  It's my FAVORITE flavor of coffee, so I needed to stock up. I bought delicious gifts of food for people on my list, too, and a candle that smells divine for our home.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!
