Modern basics does holly...


Can you believe how close we are to Christmas?! How did it sneak up on us so fast?! I hope your preparations are going well; I'm amazed at how organised I've been this year: the cards are sent, the presents are wrapped and a couple have already been hand-delivered for the special day! All I've gotta do is sit and wait....I like that! :)

Anyways I'm zooming by with yet another Christmas card (what else?!)

happy happy happy holidays

Still stickin' to the traditional colour combo I love so much, and still giving it a modern-kinda twist with Modern Basics posing as holly :)

Again, as I've dabbled with this fabulous colour combo, I'm entering this card into the current JUGS challenge too:

I'll be back again before the big day with a few more Christmas cards to share but if you don't pop back before Christmas I'd like to wish you all a fabulous Christmas!

Catch ya later!

Way to make this set work for Christmas!! Enjoy the waiting! I'm still teaching today and tomorrow (arghh)--hard to keep these teenagers (and myself) motivated to work.

just waiting? Well get over here and help me!! lOL I actually am not too bad with the preparations...just sugar cookies to bake today after my hair appointment. A few gifts to wrap and then we're done. Christmas day will be hectic with Jake flying back to Vancouver and preparing for 32 people for dinner! Yikes! I love how you've used that stamp for the holly leaves!!! Your genius never disappoints, Duchess! love the little bling, of course :) I used to only like Merry Christmas sentiments, but when I thought about it, I really like my 2 weeks of holidays too and they are definitely happy ones :) Oh, I saw a fabulous Christmas card in the Create Christmas book last night. I won the copy and the December issue on their FB page last month :) Gorgeous! Hugs!!
