The background is from a Recollections matstack that I picked up on Thanksgiving. I embossed the white strip with a Cuttlebug folder and matted with shimmery silver. The sentiment (from Papertrey Ink) is embossed with silver embossing powder.
Life hasn't exactly become less busy! We hosted Thanksgiving and have had a lot of company. The Christmas cards all got mailed out and I finished my calendars, finally. We haven't done very much shopping, but we really don't have a lot to do. We made our list of people to buy for and noted a few ideas. I really want to get that done as soon as possible. I haven't done any card-making (until last night) for about three weeks, it seems! It actually feels kind of good to NOT be spending time in my stamping room and worrying about making cards for my blog! I have hardly been on the computer, too. Our weather has been COLD!!! And snowy, too! Yuck!!! Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well and not too stressed by holiday preparation.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
