Wake me when it's Christmas!

That's how I feel today, LOL! We had our open house yesterday and a fine time was had by all! All the work decorating and preparing was so worth it. Everyone seemed to have a fabulous time, so I did too. After the party we went to a holiday pops concert--what a great way to end a great day!

But today I'm pooped, LOL! Today will be filled with clean up and party put away for another year. After today, I can cruise on into Christmas with ease--everything got done before the party so I'm ready for Christmas.

This My Favorite Things set is called Merry Christmas and is from last year. WTG looks like I feel today, LOL. I'd love to curl up with a book and some hot chocolate, but it's back to work tomorrow and I know if I don't get the clean up done today, I'll regret it.

I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers and paper pieced. My patterned paper is from a K & Co. mat stack called Peppermint Twist and I used an assortment of flat-backed pearls to decorate the tree and for the corner accent. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut/embossed with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die, as was the mat.

Thanks for stopping by today!
