Holiday Wishes

Happy Thursday! Beautiful weather this week. I've been able to walk every day at lunch time at work. It's very unusual to be so pleasant in August. It's usually hot and humid. We'll probably pay for this a some point. LOL! So the cooler weather must have been on my mind when I was thinking Christmas.

This stamp set is from Simon Says Stamps called Big Holiday Wishes. I used several of the stamps from the set. I used the Freshly Made Sketch for this week. I used an embossing folder called Flurries. The images and sentiment are die cut with the Inside Out Stitched Rounded Squares from MFT. I embellished the card with some punched snowflakes covered with Crystal Stickles. The paper is Simon Says Island Blue card stock.

I am entering these challenges:
Are you looking forward to the weekend? I am hoping for some craft time this weekend. Of course I always wish for that but it doesn't always happen. Wishing you a relaxing, crafty weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

Donna
