December 25 card made using the Frame of Mind cartridge and the November stamp of the month.

Hello, my friends!

Can you believe it is November already? This year is flying by. I just love November because that is when it really starts to cool off here in Dallas. We need our yearly reprieve from the oppressive heat!
I will be back later on with a winner for the E2 machine. However, I wanted to share a pretty little Christmas card that I made using the November stamp of the month and the Frame of Mind cartridge. This fun cartridge is on sale currently and goes great with the stamp of the month.

The cut that I used I thought could look like a wreath if you worked it right. I love how it turned out!

The border was made using a Martha Stewart border punch.
The cardstock, pearls, and ink are Close To My Heart.
See you back here later with a winner for that FANTASTIC machine.
