TGF Odette

Hello Everyone and Happy Saturday!
Can you believe that Christmas is just over two weeks away?!  I'm FREAKING out!  I usually am already planning for Christmas in October and pretty much prepared by the end of November...
This year, I'm SO unprepared PLUS we are hosting both family dinners this year....we ALWAYS host my family dinner on Christmas Day but, we although we've hosted the hubby's family dinner a few times in years past, we don't do it EVERY year and I just found out that he told his mom we'd be the hosts this year.  Yikes!  Good thing HE cooks...LOL, I just have to clean and decorate but, I'm STILL scrambling!

Anyway....I made a card a while back and entered it into the TGF December Guest Designer Contest.  Needless to say, I didn't win but, I've still been wanting to post it to my blog but, I keep forgetting!
So, here it is:

I made the flower from satin ribbon and a CTMH rhinestone brad and my mom made the stick pins...I was going for a retro 40's type feel here since odette's outfit and hair kind of remind me of that era (or updated versions of 40's style) hence the prints and muted colours I used as well as the crochet lace and stickpins...I think I achieved what I was going for....

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Your card is totally gorgeous! I love everything about it. Best wishes, Jill :)


I'm loving your card Naomi, the image is gorgeous. Love the lace and the flowers, so elegant,
You will see that your dinner is going to turn out perfect, you still have time to prep. I love entertining, just do as much as you can the days before, so that way you won't be too tired. Plus hubby is cooking, perfect. Merry Christmas.
