Christmas Overload!!!!!!

I love this time of the year.  I love winter weather, Christmas songs, lighted trees, manger scenes and everything to do with Christmas......  Except the stress.  I have not wrapped the first gift.  I've made my Christmas cards - finished today.  Now I have to get them to the Post Office so they will get to houses a day before Christmas.  I am sick.  I am tired.  And I have 2 days to finish shopping, wrap gifts and get well.

So here is the Christmas card that I made this year.  That was stressful too.  Ugh!  I am going to say the same thing I say every year.  I will do the exact same thing next year and wait until the last minute!  Again!  lol

I just love the Ornamental Pine Stamp set by Stampin Up.  I used a multitude of products to create this card.  I showed no loyalty to one brand.  I used cardstock and ink from Fun Stampers Journey.  Cardstock from Michaels.  Ink from Momento and Close to My Heart.  The stamps are all Stampin Up.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the cardstock and the banner.

Tune in tomorrow for a fun Christmas card.  It's a little busy, but it is cute.

Have a great day and be inspired.


 Isaiah 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign:  The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.


  1. Love the card.

    Hope you can soon stop stressing and actually enjoy enjoy the festivities. Sue

  2. Thank you. :-) This is a good stress. LOL

  3. Oh, dear, April, you didn't come back the next day, so I'm afraid that means you got sicker. I hope you are better now and you were able to enjoy Christmas day!! I think your card is stunning and I'm saving your design because I just got that SU set. It's too late for this year, but I'm making CCs all year long in 2015, so it will be great inspiration! Thank you for the visit and Happy Holidays to you! Hugs, Darnell

    1. I was feeling much better by Christmas Eve. And I got all my cards out. I am going to do like you. I am going to do one Christmas card design a week. So I have plenty of time.

  4. This is so beautiful! It gives such a sense of peace-something we all need this time of year! Hope you are feeling much better now!
