Happy Thursday, peeps!  I have one more Christmas card…can you believe it?  I still am thinking of people I’ve missed!  This one is for a couple from my church who are celebrating their first Christmas as newlyweds!  She was a music major in college, so I thought she would enjoy this card.  I used some leftover digital musical paper I had printed for another project, and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

and here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Musical Joy Christmas Card

I used some other scraps of DSP from my plethora of 6x6 pads; the vertical piece is stamped with a Unity single stamp called Rejoice for our Silent Night; the circular panel is stamped with the words from The Sounding Joy (ret. SU) and the “joy” diecut is from Lil’Inker:


I added some gold glimmer stars and a little bit of Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon to complete my card!  Thanks for visiting today!

We attempted to make gingerbread cookies yesterday; Cassidy quickly got bored with the rolling and cutting part, which is the part I thought she would like, and she couldn’t handle the piping, but she definitely got into the sprinkles:




and the eating!


They weren’t the most beautiful cookies, but she had fun!

What a beautiful, thoughtful card you made. I'm sure she will think the cookies are pretty but it's the memories of making them with you she will remember.
