CCC #178

It's time for a new Cue Card at CASology

This week's Cue is:




Can you believe that it is only three days until Christmas Day?
I hope that you are enjoying the fun and festivity of the season.
I can honestly say for the first time of quite a few years I have it together for Christmas. Shopping and wrapping done, groceries bought and onto some baking. I imagine it has a lot to do with the fact that both kids have been away at school.  They are both coming home tonight, Brooklyn writes her last exam today and Ben hung back a couple days so he could bring her home so she didn't  have to take the bus.

We had so much snow fall on Friday and Saturday but mild yesterday, raining today and in the forecast all week. We might still end up with a green Christmas. I will include a few photos at the end of the 14" that fell last weekend.

For my card today I triple layered the merry die cute and embossed the 'christmas' below it.  Very simple but lovely to look at. If you wanted to mass produce to mail out a single layer 'merry' would still look lovely!
