Merry Christmas!

Boy its quiet around here isn't it? I was just telling Jen yesterday that I haven't had the slightest desire to create a thing lately! Wishing that would change...BUT...my house is spotless! That laundry I complain about all the time? Done. And folded. AND put away! WHAT? Yep! I have done lots of hanging out with friends, baking, my family is in town so its just been a fun and busy time! I had to jump on with a quick card today just to say HI and Merry Christmas to all of my blog friends!
 I have been so blessed by the friendships that I have made here! Thank you all for taking the time to visit! I hope that each of you has an amazing Christmas season! 

I love love this patterned paper and I know you have seen it on a recent card, but I had to focus largely on this paper! I love it...already said that! But I do... This ribbon is some of my favorite as well. Its wired edge and from Hobby Lobby! It makes the best holiday bows!

 Well, I am off to work on the to-do list! Hope you all have a fantastic day! I'll see you Friday for the next CAS-ual Fridays challenge! 

 OH and one more quick thing....HERE is the link to the window card .svg file!  I posted THIS card the other day and I got a lot of emails! :)  It is a fun look!  If you make something with it, stop by and leave me a link!  I'd love to see it!
