holiday cheer

I can't believe how quickly Christmas is sneaking up on me this year!  I haven't even started my yearly calendar yet!  Yikes!  As soon as the PTI release is over, I'm going to have to concentrate all my time and efforts on getting that done so it's ready in time for Christmas.  Luckily, I still have a few cards left to share that I created last month.  I pulled out this adorable Henry Mouse sitting on Candy Cane image from Whiff of Joy and paired it with some Basic Grey patterned paper (Fruitcake line).  I used the slot punch tool from Making Memories to create the slots to slide the ribbon through and added some ribbon, lace, buttons, and lots of stitching.

Have a wonderful day!
