I am definitely starting to feel some Christmas spirit. Yesterday I did some volunteer work with a local agency in the morning. I got to relax in the afternoon, which was nice. We had TERRIBLE weather yesterday so I got drenched just getting out of my car & into my apartment. I needed the time to dry off and warm up.
We had our church Christmas dinner last night. Between that, helping at the Christmas Closet last Tuesday, and finishing my tree, I feel ready. I even found my mom's gift - she's the hardest to shop for.
Today was low key. I've got two versions of one card to share today. I'm entering my version in three challenges, as follows:
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C315 - Oh Christmas Tree
Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - Jean's Masculine CAS challenge
Like my snowflake card from my last post, these were kits my friend put together. The first one I did exactly as she made hers.
Then for the challenge I made some changes. I flipped the patterned paper over, altered the orientation, and as you can see, chose a different sentiment stamp. Were I not aiming for a somewhat masculine feel, I might have added a bit of bling in a few spots on the flowers (by the word little in the greeting).
