My Last Magical Monday

Good Morning all – I hope you had a wonderful weekend. And yes, this is my last week as part of the DT for Paper Cupcakes. Let me say that I have enjoyed myself tremendously, Nina and the other DT members have been a delight to work with, and I’ve met so many sweet and talented ladies – I’m going to miss all of you so much. I was given the option to stay on, but I have so much going on in January with our family business and year end, etc. that I would have been overly stretched and stressed and on the other hand it wouldn’t be fair of me to just “bow out” so to speak for the next few weeks and then pop back in. But ladies, it’s been a pleasure and a wonderful experience.

And now on to my card. I am actually the one hosting the challenge this week with one of Nina’s new images “Merry Christmas Snowman” and because everyone is so busy with holiday preparations, I went for a simple and easy traditional red and green Christmas card.

My paper is a mix – the polka dot (which I love) is from the “Noel” line by Making Memories, the stripe is from a DCWV small mat pack that I have tossed aside by now and cannot find under the piles. It’s one of their new ones – they had really great ones this year. Pop on over to the Paper Cupcakes Challenge Blog and join in the fun – there’s always a great prize!

Take care and Merry Christmas!
