Good Saturday morning to you,
Diane with you today on the blog.

I don't know about you,
but it seems the holidays are certainly creeping up on us!
From Thanksgiving on, I am super busy
and like to get my Christmas cards made way in advance if I can!

One of my newest dies purchased from the Classy Cards 'n Such 
online store is one of the new Memory Box Distressed dies.
This one is called Distressed Snowdrift Collage.
Look at all the pretty and intricate details.
A tiny White Pearl was added to each full snowflake.

I stamped an image from Stampavie called Tobi's Dearest Deer
and colored it with my Tim Holtz Distressed Water Color Markers.
A bit of Diamond Stickles was added to the image.

Once dry, I popped the image up using Joy! Foam Pads Large.
To finish, I added a ribbon, 
a tag tied with Doodle Twine from the Sweet Cakes Valentine Assortment,
a snowflake button that I topped with Silver Rock Candy.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
