This Year's Christmas Card

Now that these are all in the mail (well, almost) I can share my holiday card here. December has been a very busy month, but I'm getting ready for the New Year with my little list of goals, and one of those is to contribute to this blog more regularly. I'm also hoping to start doing some design challenges, so be sure to look for those!

In the meantime, I love this card. I absolutely fell in love with the Tree Trimmings set when the 09-10 Idea Book arrived in the mail, and immediately decided that I would do my holiday cards with it. I borrowed the color scheme from my favorite holiday DSP (Holiday Lounge), and whipped up 40 of these (some had Sahara Sand as a base instead of the Basic Grey, which lightened things up) last week. As you can see, I'm still on my embossing kick.

I hope you all had a lovely holiday and are making your own lists of goals for the New Year.
