Santa's Notebook for Card Patterns...

Friday, December 2, 2011

Hello, dear friends and family!! Hope everyone is enjoying kicking the Christmas season into high gear. It is certainly happening in the Freeman household...the race is on!!! What fun! I must confess, it's not all fun, though...especially when everyone is tired on a Friday morning after a busy, busy Thursday night. My darlin' baby girl and I didn't exactly start the morning off on a positive note. After a long talk and a few tears, which cut into about an hour of her school day, I finally got her headed off in the right direction. I really felt like I deserved a therapy session with some of my favorite Christmas papers and trims...don't you AGREE?!? One of my finished products was for this sweet little sketch at Card Patterns...
Boy, it has been a LONG time since I have played along. But I thought this sketch was perfect for a little Papertrey notebook. And I was also excited that when I was done I would have a little Christmas gift done to tuck away...but I ended up embellishing it for MYSELF. (Oops!)
I used a pretty image from Beatriz, love, love her downloads! And a new favorite paper from Simple Stories...I think I'm hooked!...

All the paper on the front is stitched on, with a piece adhered to the inside to cover all the backside of the stitching. Probably should have stitch those buttons on, too...

I love it! Makes me happy just to look at that cheery red gingham paper!
Thanks to Card Patterns for the pretty sketch! And thanks so much to YOU for stopping! I appreciate your sweet visits!!
