Project Christmas 2011 ~ card 1

Ho Ho Ho.... I am joining in the fun over at
getting ready for Christmas 2011, here's card # 1


This week is all about
"SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW"



For the NEW, I am using my newest October Afternoon Modern Homemaker paper pad, red and green? I can't believe I am making a christmas card with traditional colors, think it is my first, LOL!



For the OLD, I used some of the paper from an old book I found at garage sale
some PTI paper for that christmas tree
and the alphabets sticker sheet from Pixie November Kit, isn't NEW or OLD?




I did some more doodling, I am loving it since I last tried it on my layout few weeks ago
So..... Merry Christmas 2011

How super organized to be getting started with next (this?) year's christmas cards already. I should learn from this as I never get them done in time.
