my son's thanksgiving break was awesome. we had a great time and a full house almost everyday. we loved every minute of it.
 we flew him back from Philadelphia to Boston and it took less than an hour for him to be in his dorm---:D
just fab!

 i am super late making my cards this year and this is a super simple project i think i can achieve and get them done and mail out this week, lol.  wish me luck!

Holly Jolly
5.25"  x 4"
the card base is from birthday bash, image #19 on the overlay. the holly is from winter woodland, image #10 and cut at 2.5.

the red cardstock was dry embossed using the cuttlebug and a sizzix plate called dot daisies. it is not a seasonal design but it did reminded me of stars, ornaments and snowflakes. 

the sentiment is from my pink stamper and you can see the whole set here. the dotted patterned paper was a piece of scrap paper. i love when i can incorporate some shaped scraps in my projects, don't you?

well, i hope you guys had a wonderful Thanksgiving and already all trimmed for Christmas :D

see you soon!

note: i am trying to take things as they come and not get anxious if i can't make it over here. we all know how busy we get during the holidays and we should do what we can do, right? i love you all....want you to know that.
