My Dear Kind & Wonderful Friend

Are your days as crazy as mine? I'm so behind these days. I feel like I'm moving in slow motion and the rest of you are going at full speed. Only 8 more days until Christmas! Tomorrow is the last day of school before the winter break. The Little Guy is excited. I've asked Santa to buy me better lighting for my picture taking. I still haven't finalized my Christmas card design! I did received my paper order from Stampin' Up today...yeah!

I don't own the Top Note die by Stampin' Up, but this is my fake version I cut using my Silhouette. I love the SU! butterfly die, and I don't get to use it enough. I ran some thin strips of chocolate chip card stock through my paper crimper to give my butterfly some antennae.

Have a good one!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: All Holidays (SU!), Polka Dot Basics (PTI)

Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Pink Flamingo DSP, & some retired polka dot paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU!), Vintage Cream (PTI)
Tools: Silhouette, Big Shot, paper piercer, paper crimper (Fiskars)
Other: Very Vanilla ribbon, chocolate chip button, pearls (Michael's), foam tape
