Not that anyone has really missed me, but I haven't posted in quite a long while. I have been so busy at work, and trying to get grades in for the quarter was a nightmare. There's a lot of paperwork for teachers that most people don't even realize. I'm not complaining. I love my job. It's just a lot of work, and I don't always get the time for making cards that I wish I had. This weekend was the exception, and I got all my paperwork finished and had some spare time to create some cards. I used some October Afternoon supplies that I got at last year's October Afternoon Warehouse Sale. I can't wait for the sale again this year. I got so many great bargains.
I can't even tell you what line these embellishments and papers are from, but they are all October Afternoon. I know they're old because it actually says December 2013 on the top. I covered the last part of the (13) year with the deer sticker which is on 3-D tape to raise it up a little bit. I also added some cute little Papertrey Ink holly leaves using their holly die-cut, and added some little holly berries to the center. I did some machine stitching, and added a few extra October Afternoon stickers. It's fairly simple, but now I have one more Christmas card finished. Hurray!
These are the challenges I've found this week where I can share this card, and I'm excited to play along because it's just been too long since I've had the chance to enter anything.

I wish I knew about more challenges, but my time is very limited so I do tend to play along in the same challenges over and over again. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I love each of these challenges, and I enjoy playing along in them. I'ts always fun.
