It sure feels like Christmas time around here with the temps so much colder...some areas even had snow flurries last night. I think it will be a chilly evening for the trick or treaters on Friday!
Here is the inspiration photo over at Festive Friday this week:

And over at Addicted to Stamps anything goes!
On Saturday I went to a stampers garage sale at a local mall and sitting on one of the tables was an old sizzix 2 present die. You know the yellow plastic ones? I grabbed it, thinking I'd use it for the FF challenge. I wasn't sure it would work in my big shot, but a couple of friends that were there said it would, so I bought it for a dollar.
I'm pretty pleased with my purchase, even though it's an older one, it sure is cute. As soon as I got home I was cutting out all sorts of presents with scraps of patterned paper. Presents were definitely the inspiration I chose from the photo for my card...but which ones to use? I had made so many!
My favorite were the ones I made with Stampin Up's holiday Designer Paper, " All is Calm."It's such pretty paper. I think I am the only one, so far anyway, not using red in their card at Festive Friday, but I just love the blue and white!
I dug out my favorite SU Christmas set, More Merry Messages and stamped the verse with blue lagoon. I thought "wrapped in happiness" went well with the presents.
Have a great day!
