My first Christmas card for the year...

 Hello and Happy Thursday! I don't know about you, but I am ready for the weekend! I just wanted to stop in and share a card I made on World Card Making Day, actually. It was the only card I completed. I had started a mini album/ journal that I spent most of the day working on, and most of my craft time since then, too! I've been having a lot of fun with it, and this is the first time I've made anything like it, but it's so time consuming for me! Well, maybe I can get some pictures of what I have done with it so far this weekend.
I had to at least make a card with Love Lives Here: Holiday, so I just kind of threw one together real quickly, and this was what I came up with:
That sweet little angel is what sold me on this set! Especially when I saw the ornaments that Erin Lincoln made with it! They reminded me of the little figurines that I collect! There are a lot more cute images and dies that go with this set, so I plan on using it a lot more in the coming months! Actually, the plan was this would be the only Christmas set I would need and use this year...that was until today and what the Papertrey Ink Design Team did with the set being released this month! UGH! 
Anyway, this card is pretty much all made up of the stamp set Love Lives Here: Holiday and coordinating dies, along with the Mat Stack 3 die and the Medium Scallop Border die. The pattern paper is DCWV and really did all the work for me. If you have any questions let me know. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Your card is beautiful. The angel is so stunning when she takes center stage, and great mix of patterns too.

Such a nice card using your Love Lives Here Holiday set. Very festive. I wanted to thank you for your kind comments today. It really meant a lot to me. I've perused your blog a bit, can't believe I've not yet been here, and pinned quite a few ideas. You are very creative. I especially like what you have done with Just the Ticket. That's one of my faves that I haven't taken out in a while.
