Here is my card for this week:

A MUCH needed Christmas card...I tell ya, I really NEED to get my butt in gear and finish my Christmas cards!  Maybe I'll make more similar to this since, aside from a bit of colouring, it'd be a snap to recreate and relatively inexpensive, too!  I'm excited because I have REALLY been wanting to be able to sew on my cards (this one could've used some stitching for sure) but, I don't have a sewing machine....Well, on Black Friday, I ordered a Janome Sew Mini from Hancock's Fabric online and it's supposed to arrive at the Mailbox in Lynden, WA tomorrow and I'm going to go pick it up, YAY!!!  I have heard and read GREAT things about it and I CAN'T WAIT to get it set up and give it a whirl!

I used this GORGEOUS stamp set by Flourishes (Christmas Candles) which I won in Stacy Morgan's blog candy back in October.  I cannot say enough about how BEAUTIFUL all of Flourishes stamps are...they're classic, timeless, and simply STUNNING!  I am probably their BEST customer, haha...but, I have been SUPER fortunate to win many sets as well.  The patterned paper is from MME Lost & Found Christmas...such a classy Christmas collection!  For a detailed Supply List, please see below.

Anyhow, I really hope you come and join us for this's a fun and easy one this week and there are so many things you could do with it!  I can't wait to see all of your fabulous projects!
