May your Merry be Very!



I love this Christmas sentiment! It is not a new one, but it still appeals to me...lots :-).

I have just made a very simple card this time...but simple is very, very good if you are considering making 20 or more (IMHO ;-).





List of Ingredients (all from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise indicated):

Stamps: Merry Merry
Cardstock: Real Red and Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black Classic Ink
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Metal-Edged Tag, 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch, Cherry Metallic Mist (Maya Road), Mini Cosmic Bubbles 6 x 6 Template (The Crafter's Workshop), SNAIL adhesive, Mini Glue Dots and Dimensionals.


Yesterday was such an amazing day here. Warm and sunny. Beautiful!

I found this fabulous red Bottlebrush bursting forth in the garden:



...and I even managed to sneak in a little beading time too (lampwork beads by Marie of Bleu Verre):



 

Today is also going to be a stunner...so I might go do some weeding I think, or sitting under a tree with the kids ;-).

Sam.
