For unto you is born this day....

This stamp is from one of the new sets just released Nov 1st from Paper Pretties called The Nativity. I decided to just use the sentiment for this card and limit the use of embellishments so it wouldn't take away from the wording. I actually intended to use silver brads in the corners but once I pierced them I liked it just as it was. Isn't the paper just dreamy??? A few snowflakes have glitter on them so it's a very subtle sparkle. The paper is by Heidi Grace, I got it from the Boutique. Not sure if there is any left since the 75% off sale is still going on. Have you taken a peek to see if there is anything you need to add to your own stamp stash?? Everything (except the Prettie stamps & swarovski crystals) is on sale!!!

This weekend is my monthly stamp club so I should get some time to stamp. This last week was rough, I caught a bug last Friday so I didn't get to play at the Prettie party Sat night, I just chatted while I was wrapped up in my heated throw. Work has been insane, we were in training last week and then this week we got all new programs & computer systems to work on so by the time I got home at night my brain was just fried! Next weekend is my annual Christmas Card frenzy class, so I'll be spending each night this coming week cutting paper for that.....last year I had to cut supplies for 800 cards. I think I could hardly feel my hands once I was done. LOL
