Merry Be Your Christmas

Is it starting to feel a bit like fall in your area?
It sure is here with cooler nights and less humid days,
but I happen to love Fall, the only downside being it is too darn short!
I started putting a few fall things out
and shopped for a few new things
to get me in the decorating mood..maybe I will show some of it later!

I have a Christmas card today, I know 'groan'
but it will arrive as fast as fall will leave us
and this year I am going to actually mail some of my cards, no really I am!

I made this card with one of the new Tutti Design dies that were released in July

The wreath was cut twice, once from green scrap and then just the cardinal from red.
I added red 'berries' using Nuvo Crystal Drops Autumn Red.

Easy card put together with scraps and dies and not too bad to mail either
though the bow will add a bit more postage.

I'm clinging to summer by my finger tips! Me and Ginger cat... I do love autumn though... I don't do the "C" word till late November but in your case I will make an exception, cos your card is exceptional! Thinking of you and sending late summer hugs! Lol!

Very lovely card Diane. The cardinal perched on that beautiful green wreath is beautiful. Great layout on this card too. And, you're right Christmas will be here before you know it so getting some cards made early is a good thing. Thanks so much for participating in the Watercooler Wednesday Christmas challenge this week.
