Christmas In Your Heart


Happy Wednesday everyone! It is getting so close to Christmas. All the family is on break, we have puzzles lined up to work on together and a few days before the presents under the tree appear in force.

Even so for so many, for me and my family too, Christmas is part of our everyday life. That's what I love about my card today. The ornament stamp by Stampendous is just perfect to share the meaning that stays with us all through the year.

I know it is a busy time of the year for all of you so I'm making a short sappy intro and now here are the details to my card. I'll see you back here tomorrow with one more card from my Stampendous stash!
