"Now and Always", Christmas ~ MMCS29

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas ~ everywhere you go, including my house.  I am already starting to feel a little bit frantic, mainly because I have NO IDEAS for gift giving this year...  the worst is just roaming the stores but at least I roam them during the weekdays with no crowds.  Enough of that.. Phew!  Time to get on with our Midnight Madness card this week.  Today I have a purple and embossed silver card I think turned out nice but you can let me know what you think.

Our monthly sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbook and you can find her wonderful products here at her store.  Our weekly sponsor is Your Next Stamp thank you to both of our sponsors.

The card front, the silver paper is Metallic as is the white paper and the tree and snowflake are pewter.  This stamp I have had for many years and I believe it is a North Woods one,  they have lovely scenic stamps but also many sentiments too.  The bow I have to tell you I did something different for me and I think I really liked the look of it.  I made a slit on the very top of the card on the fold and I laced the ribbon through it, I am showing you today a few more pictures than I usually do of this card.  The tint is a tad off but you do get the general idea of what I did, I like how it looked on the inside, a bit plump but I made a thick handmade envelope and it fit just fine, the snowflake inside is also heat embossed with Silver.  


There, that's it.  I also want to take this time to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.  I did make a Thanksgiving tag I put on a gift bag and I was going to show you, I always like to give the Host/Hostess a gift for having my family as their guest but I forgot to pull it off the camera today.  I deleted over 1000 images from my camera, most of them were of cards/paper crafting and my new store items but it was time to empty it out and start anew.  Please leave a comment and I hope to do some blog visiting over the long weekend.  Give Thanks, Jane
