Tis the Season to be.. Pretty

Happy Friday Everyone!

Whew! I'm back! Its been a looong week, but I got soo much accomplished! All of the baby shower invitations have been completed AND delivered and the wedding invites are about 2 hours away from being fully completed as well! It was a lot of work coming home from my full time job and sitting at my craft table for another 4-5 hours every night, but its worth it in the end!

For my card today, you are going to think I've gone completely nuts but I assure you I haven't!! I came across the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog and fell in love with their concept! Create a Christmas card every week for the year and then when Christmas time comes, we aren't stressed into making our holidays and we can enjoy the season!!

Here is this weeks' challenge:

I decided to use my Hannah stamp for this week's challenge as I just got it recently and couldn't wait til this Fall to ink it up and see how it looked! I decided to use Making Memories' holiday '08 line of patterned paper and buttons and combined them with Papertrey Inks' Ripe Avocado ribbon..

The best part of this card (I think) is the Liquid Applique on the tree and on the ground for snow! I love this! Once it puffed out, I used my Star Dust Stickles for some added shimmer..

And here you have it, my first card entered in Christmas Stampin' All Year Longs card challenge! I can't wait to hear what you think about it!

Have a great Friday night everyone, I will be back tomorrow to catch up on some of my posting!!

Happy Crafting!
