Holly Happy Birthday

Hi! How is Monday treating you? Is your holiday planning coming along? Our outdoor lights went up this past weekend - it was freezing, but I was anxious to get them up. I did some shopping, too. I love to give gifts, I get more excited about the giving than the receiving, and right about now I get really impatient!

I have another holiday birthday card to share today. I sent this to Joan, my fellow WMS DT member who celebrated her birthday over the weekend. I hope you had a fantastic day, Joan!

I used WMSC25 as inspiration for this one. I also used my favorite holiday color combination: red, cream, and sand with a touch of green for good measure!

I am really glad that I can use Festive Foliage beyond Christmas - I have a hard time putting it down. :)

And for those of you itching for holiday inspiration, today the WMS DT is kicking off the Waltzingmouse 12 Days of Christmas! Each day a different WMS Design Team member will be sharing holiday ideas and inspiration for gift giving, home decor and more! Today, my dear friend Julia is sharing some great gift-wrapping ideas. Head to the WMS Blog each day for a sneak peek of the project and a link to follow... oh you will love what we've come up with!

See you tomorrow, friends!
