It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

... Thanksgiving! Ha! Take that, Wal-Mart!

But, seriously, it's mid-November, I'd better get it in gear and get some Christmas cards rolling. Yes, I could have done them this summer, especially if I'd kept up with the challenges at CSAYL, but when the dew point is 74 and that Southern summer sunshine is bearing down, I just don't feel it. So now I'm behind.

Mojo Monday has a great sketch this week to get me motivated, and that extra day off hasn't hurt, either. :)
Here's my offering:

It's also for the challenges at:
Papertake Weekly - Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas Traditions
Mark's Finest Papers - Speedy the Cat Challenge - You favorite technique (Embossing and sanding the emboss.)
Frosted Designs - Use embossing
Mojo Monday - Use this sketch:

The deets:
Coredinations cardstock, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sanded. PP is from a stack, DCWV, I think. Images are from this month's sale at Verve (On sale! My favorite words besides 'approved' and 'done'!), as is the die cut label. All images are stamped with Fired Brick Distress Ink and touched up with Tea Dye. Ribbon's from the stash.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I learn so much from comments and appreciate them. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
