Birdie Christmas

Ah. I have taken a personal day. I have been working just about four weeks straight, and I decided to tend to myself a little today. That's the only way I can be there for my students, or so I have learned the hard way. Plus, I get to spend some time with my husband, which is a special treat.

Of course, I had to take a peek at today's Limited Supply Challenge. We were asked to create a Christmas card using an animal. The limited supply was that we could only embellish with ribbon. I finally got to use the cute Elzybells stamp I bought during Stamp-a-palooza, A winter song. I really would make this my Christmas card, however, when you make about 70 cards, the last thing you want to do is paper piece. I couldn't resist on this one, though! I was pretty shocked that I avoided the "colors of the season," yet still stayed seasonal. Put me in a little panic at how close we are to Christmas. That passed quickly.

Ah, you lucky girl! Enjoy your day off. Is it wrong that I'm feeling the need for one, and it's only September? :D

Very cute card! I only have one Elzybell, which is not enough.
