Merry and Bright

The story of my life...a day late and a dollar short (which is really kind of funny if you read my previous post about the Christmas scavenger hunt)!!

The good news: I am on a new computer! My PC just would not cooperate, even after I spent $200 to upgrade to Windows 7. I am now happily using an Apple and wondering why I waited so long!!

The bad news: You get the pleasure of seeing all of my Fall and Holiday cards I could not previously upload! ;)

This little card was made for a friend who was hosting a Holiday Tea. She liked a similar layout in the SU Holiday Mini, so I just adapted it a bit. I love the look on the acetate! It used up my entire stash of Red Riding Hood striped ribbon, as each card needed 12 inches to wrap & tie. Honestly, I was pleased to use it up! My mission for 2010: Use it or Lose it!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday full of joy and happiness! I am thrilled to be back and am looking forward to another year visiting each and every one of you. :) Thanks for stopping by today!

Glad to have you back! I don't mind seeing fall and holiday cards. I could actually use some nudging to get more cards done for NEXT Christmas! Love this one-I have never made a clear card. So cool looking.
