Countdown to Christmas #3

I think I've figured out a schedule of sorts. My goal is to post a Christmas/Holiday/Winter card every Sunday and theoretically I should have plenty in my stash when it comes time next year.

I grabbed another favorite Close to my Heart set called Evergreen and went with a fun cheerful look.

The other goal is to keep these cards easy and cheap to mail too. Pop dots are a great way to add dimension, but still keep postage to one stamp.

Thanks for visiting and have a terrific Sunday.


Recipe:
Stamps: Evergreen (CTMH)
Cardstock/Paper: Papertrey ink cardstock and polka dot paper, My Minds Eye
Ink: Papertrey ink, CTMH
Tools: White Gel Pen, Fiskars Apron Lace border punch, sewing machine, Petite Oval plain and scallop nesties (Spellbinders)

Well, I'm blown away that you are keeping on goal. . .not that you couldn't, just that I am sort of in awe. That, as you know, was my goal too and do you know how many I've made so far. . .zero. I'm having fun making other stuff though ;D

I love this card. Image is perfect with the paper. AND I wish I could be so dedicated and organized so I'm not always doing everything at the last minute!
