Pease and Joy

Good morning everyone!! Hope you are all well and happy on this wonderful Saturday morning!! I am going to a church breakfast in a couple of hours....don't know if I can hold off eating till then. I might have to nibble a little cause my stomach is growling already!! It's not used to being abused in the morning...LOL!! Hopefully, I can get my Christmas tree decorated this afternoon and then start wrapping gifts....I can't believe I am ahead of the game this year...Whoohoo!!! Last year I was still buying gifts and wrapping on Christmas Eve....yikes! Anyway... I made this card a couple of days ago...the adorable little Penny Black bird image was colored with copics and mounted on two different mediallion diecuts. The paper is from October Afternoon and Stampin Up!. The sentiment is from Flourishes Christmas Classics set and the Spellbinders diecut snowflake and button with twine finish it off. ...pretty simple but fun to make!!

I made this Christmas card for a few challenges:
1. Bling it On - Christmas
2. Forever Friends Challenge - It's all Christmas
5. Raise the Bar - Christmas

Thanks for visiting...have a great Saturday!!
