texting 1..2..3...texting..1..2..3...

{patting myself on the back for my clever blog title...read on}

I'm realizing that sometimes I'm an overachiever and need to maintain some control over my exploding Christmas Card stash...it is NOT necessary for me to churn out 4 of 1 design...so I present to you, 1 {lonely} Christmas card:

Oh how I adore this line by Making Memories...what's not to love about TEXT, polka dots and rosettes?

Typing about text leads me to what inspired my card...the current Jingle Belles challenge...


We were to use text on our card and that Making Memories paper and rosette are perfect!

Check out what else inspired my card:


Tiff's sketch!

Speaking about Tiff, or is that blogging about Tiff?  She rocks and made the trek over to me during my lunch hour:)

I introduced her to my local Ben Franklin {which is within walking distance from my work} and we had a liquid lunch at Starbucks:)  LIFE is GOOD:)  Thanks for the fun time girlie!!!!
