Paper Players More Merry Messages

Check out this fun sketch Nance has for us over at The Paper Players:

 I decided to use SU's More Merry Messages, which is a favorite set of mine. I used the sentiment as the focal point of the card.
 I just love that makes me feel all warm and good inside!
When I was a kid, I couldn't wait to decorate the tree, and I'm still the same way. We always get a real tree, and I'm after Brent as soon as Thanksgiving is over to go buy one. We used to go out and cut down our own tree, until we got lazy. The last several years we just stop at a local tree lot and pick one out. I'm already looking forward to" hanging the holly, trimming the tree, family and friends as close as can be!"

Head on over to The Paper Players and check out the other cards!

Paper: SU cherry cobbler, white, retired DP
Ink: SU black
Stamps: SU More merry Messages
Dies: Lil inker stitched rectangles, lawn fawn journal set, IO holly

Love this, Laurie! I never thought to put this sentiment on the outside of a card but it works beautifully as a focal point. Love the holly berries and leaves, too.
