Have a seat and enjoy the season!

Hello!  The Christmas count down is on!  I woke up feeling a little bit panicked this morning!!!  Christmas is about 5 minutes away and I am soooooo not even close to being ready! LOL I have barely made a dent in my shopping, my cards are not addressed and I do not even have my decorations up yet!   I had a coffee date with a very good friend this morning and we talked about how Christmas has gotten to be so stressful. We discussed how people have started to lose sight of the important things and that we all get so wrapped up in rushing to get everything done that the little things go unappreciated.  That very thought inspired my card tonight:

The tree is from Lovely As A Tree and the bench sadly is retired.  (I LOVE that set!!).  I used markers to color the tree and then decorated it with Cherry Cobbler and Silver Dazzling Diamonds. The wreath is made from the 1 1/4" circle scallop punch and the 3/4" Circle punch.  The bow is made from 2 hearts from the owl punch.  To me this card says, "Sit down a while and relax!  Enjoy the twinkling tree lights and the pretty wreath!"

Close up of the tree.

Closer -upper! LOL  

My wish for you this Christmas season is that you will find or better yet make the time to sit and enjoy the little things.  Worry less about the gifts and the deadlines.  Sip some hot chocolate or yummy apple cider and listen to the music.  Go for a drive and check out all the pretty Christmas displays. Play games with your family! :)

Have a great night!
