Unity Friends with Flair (21 October)

It's Happy Friday again!  What a busy week it's been.  How about you?  Time to chill out and see the fabulous inspiration from Unity Friends with Flair.  Enjoy the hop!

I've been pretty determined to make more Christmas cards..hehe. So here's the card for today:
Love the cute ticket stamps by Joslyn Nielson, Itty Bitty Ticket to Christmas!  I stamped it on white cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa, and distressed it with Distress Ink Tea Dye.  The gorgeous patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas.  I cut a slit along the rays near the Santa image, just long enough for me to tuck the tickets underneath.  With some quick dash lines and a bow with a button, the card is done.
Here's a closer look :

That's it from me.  I can't believe we're coming to the last week of October already!  Here's a little teaser... be sure to visit me in November, because I'm planning some little giveaways as it's my birthday month.  So, I thought it would be fun to reward faithful readers of my blog.  Your encouragement means the world to me, and I just want to say Thank You from my heart.


Big Smiles...

This card looks as though it comes from another era - so vintagey as the others all say. Always admire the way you do the dashes around the card - so consistent.
