I can't believe how quickly this year is flying by! The girls have been in school for a week now, in 10th and 11th grades, and next Friday, Laurena turns 17!!!! Life itself sure is flying by as well...I never envisioned myself as a mother to a 17-year-old, and a 15-year-old!! It's overwhelming if I think about it for too long...so let's move on, shall we?
I'd like to share my most recent Christmas card with you today:
I have most of the ladies I work with giving me their empty tissue boxes, and this cute ornament was made from one of them. I was inspired by the colors of the box, as well as the design of the "un-usable parts" for my layout. An adorable little polar bear from a misc. Christmas stamp set, and a Signature Christmas sentiment from Papertrey Ink are my stamped elements, and the ornament shape is from 2011 Heirloom Ornaments from Spellbinders.
I want to add this card to these challenges:
