Friday Sketchers #83 - Embellish-It

Even though it is so close to Christmas, I had to make just one more Christmas card. I decided to use the sketch from Friday Sketchers #83. Here is the sketch....

...and here is my card...

Stamps: Sharing in Your Sorrow (Stampin' Up!), Partridge and pear (Martha Stewart)
Paper: Blue Skies by American Crafts (available at Embellish-It)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: Dew Drops, Joys of the Season (Cricut)

Here is the story behind this card: One of my favorite groups is Straight No Chaser, especially their version of 12 Days of Christmas. (If you have not seen it, view it here. It is worth the watch). My daughter and I have been listening to that nonstop this year. So, when I got my Blue Skies paper and saw the wonderful pear papers, I just had to make a partridge in a pear tree card. It took some thought, but I finally came up with combining my Martha Stewart Christmas Stamps and made a partridge in a pear tree. I decided to give it to my DH since the song says "my true love gave to me..." and he is my true love.

Embellish-It still has some awesome sales going on. She is also offering Free Shipping on domestic orders of $50.00 or more! Enter code 4SP9HD in the coupon box at checkout! (One discount per order). Go check it out before time runs out.

I want to with you all a Wonderful Christmas. I hope it is filled with joyous times with friends and family. See you next week.
