I’m ready for Christmas!

With Thanksgiving almost here in the US, that means retail stores’ Christmas decorating and store fronts are already in full swing. And to be honest with you, I don’t mind it at all. I absolutely love the holiday season, and every day is a little bit of Christmas for me. I’m even thinking about bringing a big tree back from my parent’s house this Thanksgiving to decorate. My first real Christmas tree on my own! Now that’s something to celebrate.

Today I wanted to share a card with you using this fabulous stamp set from Simon Says Stamp – Gnome for the Holidays. I had a chance to play with it at the retreat I went to in Ohio, and I’m in love. I’m definitely picking it up on my next shopping trip over at Simon.

I colored the image in with copics, cut out the background and added a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn’s Dewey Decimal collection to the back of the frame to finish off the composition. This sentiment from the same stamp set + background paper from Lawn Fawn’s other current collection, Fa La La, helps to pull this card together. I love that you can use the two Lawn Fawn collections together so seamlessly. Bright Side + Dewey Decimal look really fabulous together, too!

Hope your week is going well so far and you’re either happy to get into the holiday spirit or are successfully avoiding the holiday cheer until you’re ready. :) I’m working away on getting healthier and on the holiday shopping guide. Stay tuned for that next Tuesday! (Hoping to have it up at 5 pm.) Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon!
