Hello!  Happy holidays!  Today I have a quick, clean and simple holiday card tutorial for you.  So perfect for mass-produced and last-minute holiday cardmaking.  I used Watching Deer Circle with Stitched Circle Trees die sets from Memory Box.  The outside and inside sentiments are from Altenew’s Holiday Wishes.

    Christmas just days away and I still have a lot on my To-Do list to check off.  So this will be my last post for 2019.  I want to thank each and every one of you awesome fellow crafty friends for your continuing support of my blog and to many of you, the gift of your beautiful friendship.  I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and to those that don’t celebrate, Happy Holidays!  May the new year bring you and your family blessings, prosperity, and peace.  See you in 2020 with my first post on January 1st for the launch of Cards for Little Hearts’ 4th Annual Heart-Themed Card Drive.  Please take care and safe travel.
