The Sounding Joy

I'm posting a little later than usual today because we've been busy with a run to the doctor's office. That's right, I'm home with a sick kiddo again. This time, it's strep, so here's hoping no one else in the house comes down with it! Until then, here's a lovely Christmas card for your viewing pleasure.

This is such a gorgeous set! This is the kind of set that you see it, and it makes you think that maybe, just maybe, you should make all of your Christmas cards this year. Or is that just me? Anyway, that's what I thought when I saw it in the Holiday Mini! This card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketch #5, as you can see. Are you starting to think about Christmas? It's hard to get into the holiday card-making mood with our little warm up here, but it's always nice to get started early, mostly because your kids might get sick again, which will leave you with even less time than you anticipated!

Paper: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
