Hi friends!  Happy Saturday!  I don't know about you, but I have to get started on my Christmas cards for this year.  I am usually way ahead of the game by now.  I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and knew I had to make a Christmas card. 

I knew I wanted to use patterned paper for my design.  I spotted this piece and knew it was going to work perfectly.  The poinsettia is one of my favorites from Catherine Pooler.  I was not going to waste the pieces that were left of the patterned paper so I created another card.  Why not when you have all your supplies out right?!!!

Here they are side by side.
