What a great day!  I got to catch up with Margaret (shhh...don't tell but we were on the phone almost 2 hours)!  Isn't it a shame that work gets in the way?

Only 10 more days til we get to visit in person!!!  YEA!!!

Ok.  I have a Christmas card to share tonight.

I used the sketch from Merry Monday#60.  I used very old Memory Box paper that years ago I bought on a trip with Margaret to Eclectica in Memphis, which sadly closed its doors last year.  CS is from Bazzill.  I used an All Night Media image stamped with Encore Metallic Gold.  I used MFT dies for the fishtails and added red Swarovski crystals for a little bling.

I am also entering the followingchallenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - use diecut or punch
ABC Christmas - K is for Kept Safe (Memory Box paper
Holly Jolly Christmas - 6 or more layers

Thanks for stopping by!
