Curtain Call Act 57 Flying by.....

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

The Festival of Tree was a huge success....we found out last night that Sarah (my oldest) won one of the trees...yeah!!! My girls, hubby and In-laws had so much fun....I took a few pictures, but I didn't have time to edit them...I will show them to you this week!!!

Anyway, I can't hardly believe it's already Sunday and time for the Curtain Call Act 57 !!! Stacey has challenged us to some tough colors this week!!!


I must admit I struggled big time...but nevertheless at least made a card :) !!!



This card only took me 10 minutes....that's all the time I had today!!! Sorry, it's not perfect, but it's been one of these crazy days again!!! I used the super cute PTI Set called Merry Little Christmas and combined it with the sweet Bird Watching Set. I added a matching Ribbon and Button. I couldn't resist to embellish the bow with a Silver Beaded Cord again...which you can find either at Michael's or Hobby Lobby!!!
