Christmas "On the Fly"

I went to a lovely and super-fun Christmas party last night ... I think I may have mentioned (mucho many times!) that I have been in the same book group for nearly 20 years. We have a GREAT party/dinner/book exchange every December. I love my book group friends to BITS!!

While I was sitting at the table enjoying the most DELICIOUS meal (thanks so much, Shellee, for being the "Hostess with the Mostest"!) I had one of those lightbulb moments ... one that makes your stomach turn over ... I realized that it was MY turn to be the hostess for today's F4A challenge on SCS! I had remembered about it earlier in the day, but somehow had a complete and total brain block after that and forgot ALL about it!!

So ... when I got home VERY late (well after 11:00), I ran down to my craft room and started creating this card. The challenge was to make a Christmas/holiday card in 15 minutes or less (for those occasions when you are running out the door and realize you need a little card or something for a party hostess or a dear friend - or both rolled in to ONE!).

That's pretty much it ... have a GREAT day and FABULOUS weekend!!

What a beautiful and meaningful card. Back to the Truth of the holiday...How could you go wrong?

It is lovely, Wendy. And, elegant at the same time. A winner in my book...and 15 minutes! Awesome!
