Christmas Waves a Magic Wand...

Hello All!

Can you believe it is August already?  As I am typing the cicadas are outside making their cicada sound.  I remember hearing them as a child and thinking that summer had past its peak.  When I saw the sedum in bloom I knew that school was soon to start.  Funny the things we remember!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made as per a sketch from a fellow blogging buddy, Jessi, at One Crafty Mama.  She is a member of the Tuesday Morning Sketches team and her card using the sketch is so cute.  

The card base is 4.5"x6.25" white card stock.  The patterned paper (My Mind's Eye All Is Bright) was embossed using Cuttlebug's Poppy folder.  Next is Cheery Lynn's French Pastry Doily in white, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares in gold paper and Spellbinders Squares in white.  
The sentiment is from Quietfire Design- Christmas waves a magic wand- and is heat embossed.  
The ribbon is from my scrap bin and I think it came off a Christmas package.  You know you are a crafter when you save all bows, ribbon and tissue paper from gifts!

If you like the stamp, feel free to hop on over to the Quietfire site and see the collection of holiday stamps.  They are all on sale right now for 30% off.  Bonus: the flat shipping rate in Canada for the stamps is only $3.90 for the package.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend.
