CR84FN #68 ~ Noel!

Well hello there! My mom and I had our annual holiday outing this afternoon. There is a large garden center that completely transforms their store into a Christmas extravaganza!! A huge assortment of decorated trees, wreaths, nativities, whimsical what nots yearning to be taken home with you. And can you believe I didn't buy a thing  ~ my mom even treated me to lunch!!!  But I was inspired by all that I saw and came home to make a card. This one is for the CR84FN  color challenge.


I've used several papers from the MME All is Bright paper pad. There are so many fun images and patterns that you can put a card together quickly with no stamping needed if you choose. I decided to use just a tiny tag stamped with some snowflakes and a tiny Noel. I'll put Christmas wishes inside for the recipient. My grosgrain bow is adorned with die cut holly leaves (PTI), a jingle bell from Hobby Lobby and some pretty Jenny Bowlin stick pins.

That's it for me tonight friends ~Lisa

Wow you didn't not buy a thing. I kinda get it….. sometimes we just don't need it. Bet it was so fun to look and then go out to lunch. I went out to lunch with my daughter today .
