We have, for the second weekend in a row, procrastinated. Our tree has lights and ribbon and an angel on top, but no other decorations. In my defense, I did decorate the book-themed tree in the basement. But the two trees upstairs (the one we cut down before my husband had surgery and a small artificial tree) are simply lighted and beribboned.
If I thought I could get away with leaving them thus, I would.
I'm a lover of simplicity, after all.
But my children. My husband. Not so much.
Anyway, I needed a bunch of thank-you cards for myself and made this one when I was feeling delightfully blue.
Papertrey's Ombre Borders and Hero Arts ombre ink make a lovely card, don't you think? That border stamp looks a bit like frost on a window. The bling is blue, and so are my husband's eyes. Although he has two that are roughly the same size, whereas the card has three of varying size.
I should stop free associating.
May your holiday preparations move more quickly than mine.
Peace, love, hope, and joy,
