merry...

what can i say??  it's a "merry" kind of week!  i didn't realize that all of the cards i posted this week only had the word "merry"...oh well.  merry, merry, merry!!!

it's now only a week away, the merry time of year.  how nuts is that?  this is one of the christmas cards i made to send to friends.  it's simplicity in the beginning turned into quite the time consuming process.  funny, i was explaining it to the mom of one of my cute patients the other day.  she is a quilter.  she told me a way to do it that would have made it so much less time consuming!!  too bad i didn't consult with her prior!  oh well...  i  used sticker paper and inked it the colors i wanted for the tree, then layered them.  sort of homeade washi type fashion!

go enjoy friends with flair over at unity.  i'm sure there will be christmasy, holiday ideas a-pleanty!!
