I created this card a couple months ago for the Stampin’ Fancy Friday Color Challenge of Old Olive, Real Red, and Coastal Cabana. I have been meaning to get it up on my blog and thought I should do so quick before the Words of Cheer Stamp Set and Christmas Cheer Dies retire on January 3, 2022!
This has been shared on my Instagram Page, so it might look familiar to you. 🙂 I thought it was a good card to share as it says what I want to say to all of you! “HAPPY CHRISTMAS FROM MY HOME TO YOURS!” My family was hit by a cold bug that I thought I had managed to escape, but last Friday when I went to bed, I could tell I wasn’t feeling quite right. I have pretty much been in bed since. Yesterday was better, but by evening I was pretty wiped out. All tests are negative, so just viral.
Since the dies are currently 50% off, if you want to order this “bundle” you will want to snag them separately, as it’s a better deal for you! Whoo-hoo! Make sure you order them soon, they retire on Jan 3, 2022 or While Supplies Last.
