Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #53

Hi Friends!! It's a beautiful day, isn't it? If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you'll know that my favorite day is Friday! Actually, every day is a good day but Friday is the best of the good days! LOL!

Today is Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge day! Yup, it's that time again. The challenge is an easy one. . .basically, create a card with no stamping. Well. . .that's super easy! I love it! I'm definitely all for anything easy!! Aren't you? Be sure to stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and check out the awesome cards the design team created! Hope you'll play along this week!!

My card is all about stickers! The Christmas tree and the sentiment are embellishment stickers by Jolee's Boutique and the border is by Stampin Up. I also used my Shapebilities to create the pretty cut shape design at the back of the Christmas tree. This card took me about 20 minutes to create because all I did was stick the embellishments on to my card and added the ribbon. That's it!

Today is the first of my daughter's 10 day break from school. I'm looking forward to hanging out with her . . .it'll be fun. My daughter survived her first year of college! Whoohoo! She did really well and I'm so proud of her. She's going to take summer classes because she wants to be on track. . .nowadays, there's no such thing as graduating from college in 4 years. It's more like 5 years and she's hoping that if she takes summer classes, she'll be able to actually graduate in 4 years. She'll have 2 months of summer break after she's done with summer school so she'll have a lot of time to relax.

For me, the 10 day break will mean 10 days of not having to wake up at 5:30 in the morning to drop off my daughter at the bus stop. Yay! I look forward to the time off!

Anyway, hope y'all have a beautiful Friday!!
