It's Beginning to Look....Well, You Know...

No....I am not quite ready for the Christmas Season, but I was really in the mood to make tags and 'glittered things' all weekend, so this is where I landed.

I must say that as we officially welcome autumn to our lives, it won't be long before we are totally focused on holiday projects.
Have you already planned out your holiday cards?
I'm not there yet, but when I get the inspiration, there will be no stopping me!

I really enjoyed making these projects. This beautiful patterned paper from Foo-Fa-La was so easy to play with.



I have been using a lot of vintage buttons on my cards lately, too.

The other bits 'n' pieces to these projects include the Spellbinder's Snowflakes and lots of glitter!






The tags include the Martha Stewart Arctic Snowflake punch and Nestibilities scalloped circles and the tag template from Cuttlebug's Happy Halloween set.

So....I hope you enjoyed a little peek into the holidays with me. I am excited to be able to share this season with you as it approaches.

I am now off to finish my project for the 'Think Ink Tuesday Challenge' over at Artful INKables. I hope you will stop back tomorrow and see the results. In the meantime, I hope you will consider taking the challenge yourself.
Stop over at the AI blog and get all the details!

Gorgeous card and tags Julie. It wasn't 'til you wrote about glitter yesterday that I realised that although I have lots, I rarely use it! Just a few blobs here and there with icicle stickles. Yet I love glittery things!
