Do you like this little tree ornament? Yup, you guessed it, you can buy it in my Etsy shop.

The little candy cane favor is made using the envelope punch board. You can find the directions to make this card on Pootles' blog here. It's quick and easy to make, no matter what my stamping students say!
One thing that I love to do is make favors and ornaments to match my cards. Do you like to do that, too?
The star ornament is made from Lagoon cardstock and embossed with white embossing poweders. It's made by adhering 4 stars together and adding a bead and ribbon before you glue it all together. The Bright and Beautiful stamp set comes with a star framelit shape to cut it out.
The pines are stamped first in the Lagoon color and then embossed with white to give it some depth. The pine cones add more dimension and the framed saying just gives it a simple finish. I found the idea on Pinterest by Rambling Rose Studios.
I think this is one of my all-time favorite cards. I love the simplicity of the blues along with the simple saying of Christmas Wishes. Now if only the rest of the holiday planning was this easy!
I had so much fun designing the bird that I think I will make some more "friends" to go with him. Stay posted!
How about you, can you think of someone outside of your close family and friends that would love to receive a card?

I love the saying that is in this set: "An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth." I guess I like it because I am a 'stop and smell the roses' kind of girl. Even though I usually (always) wait until the last minute to get things done, I don't like to be in a rush!
