So who is ready for some Christmas???

WELL...Christmas wouldn't be Christmas if you didn't have your letter ready for Santa ;) I have jumped on the envelope bandwagon, finally, lol and when I saw these at CutCardstock I had to grab them and this is my version. There are so many cool things to do with them... I instantly thought of writing a fun, quirky letter of my own to Santa. Of course, I had to embellish it with some Shimmerz and I used some of my favorite 7 gypsies rubons on the flap. OH and the FAB Jenni Bowlin line from Core'dinations cardstock. I just LOVE this color is very similar to the colors in our dining room.

Here is a close-up of the tree..

And i inserted my letter to Santa here....even though the letter starts out really is just thanking him for making all my dreams come true and my wonderful happy and healthy family. i also asked him to bless another family that may be needed some good cheer this year.

AND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got another fun creation from this Pink Paislee paper...I love love love challenging myself to see how much I can get out of one piece of patterned paper.

I got some Martha Stewart Twine from my awesome Secret Santa so I altered the container...

Again...more Core'dinatins Black Magic Cardstock here...sanded after it went through my Cuttlebug...those two are bff's i swear!
