Have A Merry One!


I can't believe I actually had some time this week to get a card done that wasn't a DT project! Specially this week because I'm preparing to have Thanksgiving at my place!! I pretty much got everything bought and planned. Now the only hard part is keeping the house clean until family comes over...which isn't easy with 3 boys running around...lol!

My Grandma ordered cards from me this year, plus I have to get my own done...so if you are sick of seeing Christmas cards from me, sorry...lol! :P~

For my card today I used the fabulous layout from "Deconstructed Sketch" and an adorable digi stamp from "Dustin Pike"! 


I actually have had this image colored for awhile and planned to layer him so he was colored 3 times! The sentiment is just a clear stamp set from Studio G that I got in the bargain bin last year.


I'm starting to fall in love with Glamour Dust...lol. I think I love it much more than Stickles because it's much more sparklier..is that a word??! Although Stickles is easier to work with, it's not as pretty!

And the inside I kept simple...
