Cup of Christmas Cheer

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well, its 12 days until Christmas.
My plan for completing all that I want is coming along slowly. I went out to finish Christmas shopping yesterday and 95% is done. I had intentions on starting my wrapping last night, but that didn't happen. So it will be a marathon wrap today.
I had several interruptions and then I didn't feel like starting it. Half of my cards are written out and ready to drop off at the post office. That will be a task for today along with the wrapping.
My son and his family come in on December 21 so everything that I want to complete has to be done by then. Once my granddaughter comes its all over for me. We have cookies to bake and then off to the mall to ride the Christmas train and maybe visit Santa. She was afraid last year so maybe now that she is 3 it will be different.
Now onto to my card for today. This is another of my Christmas cards. I wanted to use some Washi tape on one of my cards. I used this craft tape for the first time a couple of months ago. So I bought some red and decided to try it on a Christmas card.
I like how it turned out. My printed image is from Darcie's Stamps U-Cuts collection. They are all ready to go on a card. Just a lot of fussy cutting is required.
I placed the cup image on a Spellbinders die and added the word "Merry" cut from a PaperTrey ink die to complete my card.
Hope your Christmas tasks are going well. Leave me a comment and let me know I am not the only one dashing to finish (lol)!! Until next time..........God bless.
