Joyeux Noel

Hello friends! I have to admit, my mojo is playing games with me, I have plenty of ideas but nothing seems to come of them. I think I'm suffering from Christmas burnout. I've been making merry cards since September, and I think I need a change. Which is upsetting because I still have so many projects I want to get done! So many ideas, so little time. I think the fact that Christmas is only 10 days away is frustrating me, making me a nervous wreck! 

Well, this card was done a while ago, and I wonder if it will be the last for the holiday...

I used 'Christmas Bears Bird Table' on this card. I can't believe how much I love these little animal images even after all this time. I've got to tell you, I go through stamps much faster than I change my socks, but I just never get tired of Lili of the Valley's sweet stamps. 

The papers are Raspberry Road designs, 'Cranberry Cottage'. I did a little stitching around the edges of the card, added some mini pom pom trim to the bottom, some jingle bells, and my favorite snowflake dies, SU's Northern Frost. 
I sponged the color around the image in Fluid Chalk, Amber Clay. The chalk inks are awesome for sponging, it produces such a soft, velvety color.

Thanks for stopping by!
