Shabby 25th Christmas Card

It's the Monday of Thanksgiving week and I wonder how many of you are taking off today or tomorrow for Thanksgiving? Perhaps you left this weekend already? If you are staying at home, like I am, hosting Thanksgiving, maybe you will have some time in between preparations to blog hop and craft? Yesterday I had a little crafty time and created this Christmas card.


The doily is actually a vintage find from one of my favorite local Antique stores, SuzAnne's! The gorgeous glittered patterned paper is new from My Mind's Eye. It's part of their new Lost and Found line. Oh is it ever fabulous! So fabulous that I want to buy several more sheets!


The chipboard numbers are American Craft Tinsel Thickers. I altered them by adding some silver glitter from Martha Stewart...she makes the best glitter!


That adorable tag with the young couple is from K & Company, part of last year's Christmas collection. And the little sentiment tag is old, old Making Memories.

Well, I'm off to do some cleaning. Shoot, it can't all be fun and games, right? Before I go however, I'd like to give a big Happy Birthday wish to my best gal pal Audrey! She's turning the 45 today! She thinks that's old, but I keep telling her it's just a number, right?!?!


Here's Miss Pettit on one of our recent junk hunts. She's gorgeous, huh? I think 45 looks great on her! Anyway, some of you know Audrey....and if you would like to wish her a Happy Birthday, visit her blog here. :)

That's it for today. I think I'll have to come back before Thanksgiving to post something fallish! Have a great week everyone and if I don't chat with you before the big feast...ENJOY! :) Kathy

What a stunning card, Kathy! You do shabby chic extremely well, my friend! Love that you used one of your new doilies on here. the whole combo is absolutely jaw dropping.
And what are you doing telling folks I'm 45? We both know very well that I only turned 29 yesterday. Or was it $29.95? ;)
