Winter CAS

Happy fall, y'all! I've been crazy-busy with a new grade level (fourth), doing the team-mom thing for AJ's tae kwon do team, getting him settled into middle school, and now wrestling's started. That hasn't left me any time for crafting, and it feels good to get something done!

So it makes sense to start back with something simple. I needed a winter card in which to tuck a Dallas Cowboys ornament that AJ picked out for my parents while we were at the Southern Christmas Show. I'm not quite ready to do actual Christmas cards yet - even if I'm listening to the radio channel that's already switched over to Christmas music!

This also is for the challenges at:
Paper Sundaes - Choose your own Sundae Toppings
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge - use circles
Crazy 4 Challenges - use circles (Great minds think alike!)
Stampin for the Weekend - winter

(Ugh! I forgot this part!)
Supplies: The stamp is from a CHF Scene It! set
               CB embossing folder, Bazzill CS, Distress Ink (Broken China and Faded Jeans)
               Glittery ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I appreciate your taking your time to visit. Goodness knows I don't have enough of it these days...

Have a wonderful weekend,
