Merry & Bright


December 26th, the day after Christmas, and we're
blog hopping with PapertreyInk!


Nichole gave us this pastel confection, 
full of all kinds of inspiration.


See that sweet grove of trees in the back?
It inspired me to do this card.


Love the bottle brush trees from Joyful Christmas.
Cover Plate: Scroll Frame
Holiday Swoosh sentiment
The back tree is done with Perfect Pearls,
the 2 front, embossed.
A bit of Wink of Stella gave them some shimmer.
How was your Christmas?
Here's a peek at mine


8 of the 11 and their moms and pops are camping out with us.


Daughter was 1st one up, so she's starting breakfast.










And so it went all day... eating, opening presents, and jolly fun!

The hop is all day, hoping to see all the fabulous creations!
