Owl See You for Christmas



 This is it, my first Christmas card of the season.  I have been busy working on everything, but Christmas cards and now it's time to give this some thought.  I am planning ahead for the Christmas Stamp-A-Stack class we will be doing, and it's time to give this some thought and plan ahead.  This Owl Occasions set has some fun little Christmas decor, and I have ideas galore.  I started with something simple today, and I love this cute little star print paper from the Snow Festival DSP that coordinates so sweetly with the stamps.  I knew when I saw it today that it was perfect for the challenge at Christmas
Card Challenge #41 to use STARS.  I added a few stars with a white gel pen to Real Red paper that I used to make the present.  I added some of the pretty stitched satin ribbon in Gumball Green, and a couple of rhinestones, and owl is all decked out for Christmas.  There is a greeting inside from More Merry Messages stamp set that I just got.  It has something for every style  Christmas card you could make.  It's lovely. 
So, I have started the Christmas cards, and it's only September.  I guess that's what happens when you become a demonstrator, and have to plan classes in advance, because that never would have happened here before.  I usually get around to making my cards the week after Christmas.  LOL! 
I'm heading to the trailer this weekend for a marathon crafting weekend to get more things prepared for the craft sale next weekend.  Wish me luck, and hope for nice weather so we can sit out on the porch and craft.  Stop back later, and see what we made.
