Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

I can't believe that Christmas is just about a week away!  I sure wish I was ready... but I'll get there.   

Today I have a Christmas card for you using MTME's Beautiful Baubles.  I love how the "O" in "Jolly" is an ornament.  Instead of using circles like the sketch has, I used a snowflake and two ornaments.

For the background paper I used MTME's Mrs Candy Claus and the solid paper is DCWV's Shimmers and Recollections' Holiday Shimmer that I found at my local Michaels.

I cut out the ornaments using Creative Memories 'Tis the Season cricut cartridge and I cut out the snowflakes using cricut's Winter Lace cartridge.

I hope you will play along with us this week as we are taking next week off to enjoy Christmas with our families.  Trust me, I need all the time I can get to get ready for the most wonderful time of the year!  :)

Please stop by the Pretty Patterns sketch blog and see what the rest of the designers have in store for you.  And as always, I truly appreciate your visits and comments.   I hope you each have a HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS!
