Christmas is in the air...

And I'm LOVIN' it! I'm excited for Christmas, yeah, but more so for my hubby getting home 2 weeks later:) Ahhh...I can't wait! He already reserved the honeymoon cabin at the beach "resort" called Okuma for the week after he gets home, YIPPEEE!! Can you say private cottage, private beach (well, sorta...), fire pit, our own lil golf cart to drive around, I CAN'T WAIT!:)
Oh, but back to the reason for this post, lol! It's JACKSONBELLE TUESDAY! And the reason I brought Christmas up (and got sidetracked, lol!) is because our "challenge" was to use Christmas products on our cards today! Well, Lindsey, being the AWESOME lady she is, sent us some SCRUM-DIDDLY-UMCIOUS Imaginisce Christmas paper! OMG it's BEEEEUTIFUL! Love the colors!

I'm not happy with the lighting for my card, so sorry! Alas, I can't stamp until the evenings after work and it's already dark by the time I can take my picture! Mebbe this is a good excuse to invest in a light box?:D AS IF I really needed a "good" excuse, bwahaha!
That dp is by Imaginisce, the penguin stamp is by Inkadinkado, the Flower is by Prima (I brushed Angel Wings Shimmerz over the flower for the shimmer!), the brad in the center of the flower is by Basic Grey, and the sentiment stamp is by PTI from "Take a Bough"! The organdy ribbon is CTMH.
Don't you love the soft colors? I gotta get me some more of that paper! This card is also my card for this weeks CPS sketch #87! FUN one {they all are!}
Check out the rest of the amazing team for some more fun Christmas projects!
Hop on over to the JBelle store and see all the FAB goodies she's got! Lots of fun Christmas stuff coming in!
Ya'll know I've been working 12 hour shifts at work, getting up at 4:00 am, I'M BEAT! I'm heading to bed early tonite, this stuff is wearin' me out, lol! Have a fantastic Tuesday!
