Is it too early to be getting excited for Christmas?

This morning my 4 y/o son started humming Jingle Bells...and just like that, I am getting in the mood for Christmas! This time of year has to be my favorite, but much of that is because I love the anticipation of the holidays :) Our trees are so gorgeous right now, but I know it will only be a matter of days until all of their leaves have fallen and they may even have some snow! Until then, I am looking forward to getting my hands on this new Merry Wishes line of Daisy Bucket Designs papers!
kind of makes you want a peppermint mocha, huh? :)


Okay, I have a couple of cards I want to share. First, here is Janelle's newest sketch over at Sketch This:

and my take on it: (you can never have too many anniversary cards) :)
Supplies: AC patterned paper, brad, ribbon and rub on. CTMH and Prism CS, Prima flower.
If you haven't already been over there to check out all of the ideas from the other designers, you should go peek! There are always so many fabulous creations!

And last, here is Laura's sketch 11 over at 2S4Y:
I decided to make an Easter card:
Supplies: Petersen Arne CS, Collage Press PP, SU stamps, AC ribbon.
I really wish I had one of those Nami pop up cards to play with! All of the designers made such stunning cards with them this week...so fun!
Well, that's it for me. Enjoy your day!

I love the simple elegance of this card...right down to the colors & how you did your ribbon. It's gorgeous.

Mmmm...those papers are adorable! They do make me want a peppermint mocha! (Although...pretty much anything wintry makes me want one of those...they are my fave from Starbucks during the holidays!)

That card is so pretty and elegant...love it! Sadly...I can't seem to see the Easter card, but I bet it is fab!

Have a great day!
