Good morning, Friends! I am pre-posting this because I am not sure that I will have enough time to post in the morning. We have to be at Mesa State College by 7:30 which means we have to leave by 7:00 and that means being up and moving to get ready by 6:00. Yikes! Nick is sooooo not a morning person so I hope this all goes well. He is playing in a 3v3 basketball tournament today. I am really excited about it!! And Nick is too! So we will see how they do! But that is why this is being pre-posted. I will let you all know how it goes tomorrow!

Today's card is one that I made up for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition challenge. This week was a sketch challenge and I just couldn't resist! And every time that I enter one of their challenges, I increase my chance to win free product or a free subscription to their next special edition that will highlight the wonderful new product in the upcoming Occasions mini!! It's not too late to sign up! Check out their website for more information. The card itself is pretty easy but cutting out the holly is not for the faint of heart! It took a LOT of patience!! I am in love with this vintage look! Too fun! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
