One Last Topper for the Season
Wish I'd thought of this one before now. Using Silent Night from PTI, I created a flourish backdrop for punched poinsettias (two punches per flower) with gold half-pearl centers. The Merry Christmas stamp is from PSX (one of the first stamps I ever bought...isn't it pretty?!?) Here's a closeup of the topper:
This SHOULD be the last thing I have to make for Christmas. The caramels are for my MIL, and the Cajun peanut mix is for my FIL. Whew.
Now, if I can just get all my Christmas cards signed and addressed, stamped and mailed. Oh, and everything wrapped.
It feels good to be at this point with 12 days to go. I don't think I've ever been this prepared for Christmas, which means I'm finally figuring it out. Given the fact that I'm 43, I have to say I'm a darn slow learner. *wink*
