Better late than never, right? ;) This card was actually made using CPS's last sketch, which I just loved! It was so easy to work with. I used a Vintage Cream base and layered on a piece of Fine Linen cardstock, which I stamped in Tea Dye ink with Winter Swirls (PTI). The swirls were highlighted with some Aqua Glue (the fine tip side) and some iridescent glitter. The 'Tis the Season sentiment, stamped in green, is from the same stamp set. The big corrugated flower is from Jillibean Soup. I inked it up with some white ink and added on a green button and some lovely burlap string (we have a remnant roll of purple burlap string left... only $3 for approximately 220 yards!!). Now that gorgeous lace was a gift from my friend Nina in Croatia! I have a bag of that lace that I have been hoarding, but I'm trying to use it! I can spare a little, right? ;)
I want to also share a couple of gift tags I made. The kids and I have been busy making cute simple tags to go on the last few gifts. All of my gifts are wrapped, but some are missing tags!! I am thankful for the time I have had with Cameron and Katy helping me out!

Speaking of C and K, and the fact that it wouldn't be Christmastime around our house without a birthday celebration, here's a picture of the two kids on Katy's birthday Monday. Katy had just opened the Ariel Bath Castle Cameron gave her. :) Cameron was just being goofy with the pink princess candy cane he had attached to her gift.
Please don't forget to come back here tomorrow for a sketch and product challenge! There's a prize to win as always!
