Rainbow Thanks

Ok...have to say...Christmas got away from me this year!  It's one week from Christmas and I made no Christmas tags, no pumpkin rolls (my holiday staple), no lights on the outside of my house (candles in the windows will have to do), no decorations to speak of on the inside of my house, besides my tree, which FELL DOWN yesterday afternoon (a few broken ornaments...thankful not a whole lot more!!), and remains in it's stand BARE!  I know, sad, right?!!  My husband asked me last night what I was going to do with the tree...I said, "Too soon!"   He suggested some tinsel and a disco ball shining on the tree...hmm...sounds GREAT to me:)!!!  I think with my kids being in town for several days after Thanksgiving, which being the 27th was already less than a month from Christmas, and then my sister's arrival 3 days later...we turned the whole house upside down and inside out for a week...there has not been a lot of "festive making" time!  I am loving watching Christmas movies, but the "doing" part of this season has escaped me.  All that said, I have moved on from Christmas cards  and have a Thank You card made with a fun (the font and design make me happy!!) die from Poppy Stamps to share with you today...
Cut 5/8" strips of paper in the five colors, adhered them to copy paper, and die cut.  Layered the die cut with 3 layers of white, adhered to an embossed stitched card.  Added enamel dots!  Hope YOUR Christmas preparations are going better than mine, but bottom line...I WILL have joy, no matter how my house looks or doesn't look, or what gets done or doesn't get done...it's all about celebrating the birth of our Lord and being able to spend time with family...THAT makes this season sweet!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. STUNNING card! It just shows that all you need is white with a little pop of colour! I hear you on Christmas prep - some years it just seems like too much! Give yourself a break and just enjoy the real meaning! Merry Christmas, Lisa!

  8. Very pretty and happy little card. I really need to get some of those dots to perk up my cards.
    Do you have a Christmas movie you like to watch every year? One of the movies I try to watch the week before Christmas is the Bishop's Wife with Loretta Young.

  10. Lovely colorful and happy card! Love the colors. You're house sounds like mine. Alot going on right now with a medical issue with my hubby so decorating hasn't been on the top of my list. Going to be celebrating the Reason for the Season! Hugs
