Christmas Workshop...continued

Click for close up

This is today's work - both a new and a change up.  I did like yesterdays branches, but wanted to give it a little punch, so I added a few red glitter berries.  It helps I think.  Then, there are ladies who do not need Christmas cards. They will make the black matted version with either the Happy New Year or another sentiment. I have both a Happy Birthday and a Sympathy sentiment that fit in the same spot.  They will choose their own. I'm just loving the sparkly on those branches! Just realized they might work for CASology challenge "#22 - Sparkle" this week.

The Christmas card below uses CTMH Partridge and a Pear Tree paper, a Cuttlebug embossing folder, Custom Crafts stamp from Michael's, CTMH Colonial White, Cranberry and New England Ivy card stocks. 

After a hectic school week, it feels marvelous to be crafting.  My house isn't cleaned or decorated, I've not finished shopping/ mailing gifts, or finished assembling what I need for my big trip...but I am in my happy place with paper + inks!
