A Spoonful of Sugar.....

Afternoon! I finally got a card done! I need to get my butt in gear with Christmas cards and seen this beautiful sketch from Sonja at A Spoonful and just had to do it! Rachel was practicing her ABC's online so I had some time to play! I just had to put the sentiment and embellishment on the opposite side to work with my image. I just adore this image from last year's Sarah Kay christmas stamps. It is the easiest to color as well!! I paper pieced the music sheets and inked the edges with tea dye distress ink. The glittery leaf is a decoration I got from Mike's and the lace is from the Flower and Craft Warehouse. I just got a bunch of papers as well! Love these ones from Making Memories. The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms. I also added some jingle bells for holly berries.
I just might make a few of these to get some more cards crossed off my list!! LOL I can't believe that it is November already!!!

Well thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are all having a great day!! I am off to play outside a bit! The weather here is beautiful so I should get some more raking done :)
