'Tis The Season

Just a quick post today. Lots to do. My apartment is still a wee bit more (ok, a lot more) messy than I'd like it to be, and I don't want to be up late tonight. So I am going to post this card and then tackle the kitchen mess. Again. I swear. it never ends. In fact, I swear I said this same thing a post or two ago. It's like my own personal Groundhog Day. 

And that reference just shows the power of the internet for transmitting information. I've never seen that movie and have no desire to do so, yet I pretty much know the whole plot due to conversations I've been part of via message boards and such. That's also how I discovered Harry Potter. I knew the entire plot before I'd actually seen a movie. And the really weird part is that being 'spoiled' didn't take away from the enjoyment I got from watching it on screen. I find that for me, knowing what's going to happen doesn't negate wanting to see the 'how' of it all.

Enough of that weird little tangent. Time for today's card. I have about 6 or 8 SU retired stamp sets that are no longer inspire me. I'm using two of them today -  Merry Minstrels and Sweet Serendipity I made six cards with the Merry Minstrels set, but I'm only posting one, as I need to colour and add sentiments to the rest. I'm entering it in two challenges:
