*Simple Joy*

Good Morning everyone... bright and sunny here in Calgary today. I am starting to feel the itch to get the house decorated for Christmas. I am doing my best to put it off until next weekend, which is still a week earlier than I would normally do it.... usually I decorate the first weekend of December. I figure next weekend is close enough since the 1st is a Monday.

Watch... we won't have time to do it next weekend LOL

This is another of the cards I created at the Calgary Classic last month. I believe Dianna had this stamp with her and as soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to do.

I stamped and embossed the image in gold, added a scalloped oval in gold paper, a black band on a white card, accented with a few gold brads. Quick, easy, and elegant.

I wasn't sure how a black, white and gold Christmas card would look, but I ended up really being pleased with it.
