Now what??

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday today! Christmas night is always so nice and quiet, almost a bit of a letdown after all the hectic running around and crafting! But a welcome time to spend with family and those close to you.

Since I am coming up on my first blog-versary, this is my first holiday in blog-land. I actually cleaned my little work area today, cleaning up and organizing a bit. Boy, was it out of control! I still have one project I am working on , but am ready to move on! When I was in Michael's the other day picking up a couple of last minute gifts, I found this pear stamp from Rubber Stampede in a clearance bucket for $5! I had found this online paper from Lollychops last week and fell in love with it! So the pear stamp was perfect, and on my list of stamps to find!

The printed paper from Lollychops is free, part of her 12 Days of Patterns. She has many 8 1/2x11 and 12x12 papers to print, along with matching tags, cards, etc. Very very pretty themes. I just discovered her last week, otherwise I would have done more holiday themes with this pear. So today I just made a simple card, maybe to use as a thank you card. Tough to see, but the pear is stickled.

Well, I have one tired puppy here today! A new collar, new toys..many special treats too! I will try to get a picture posted of him and his "haul". Although many people are taking blogging breaks, I am actually excited to have some time to catch up and start doing challenges again!

Have a wonderful evening!

Super card. I am a big fan of pear stamps and I have this one, too. Love how you teamed this pear with the bright, modern paper. Your card looks fantastic.

Beautiful card. I love how you "peared" the background with the stamp!
