Joyful Season, Stampin'Up!

Hey there, stamping friends!
Welcome to another week at The Classic Card!

Today is the last Monday of the month, so that means it's time for SOS (Stamp Out Stress) at Symposium Coffee at 1 o'clock today.
I've got some fun cards for you to stamp, and of course we've got some chatting and some coffee drinking to do as well.
If you would like to join us sometime, please let me know.  We usually have room for 1 or 2 extra people.  We meet upstairs in what's called the conference room. If stairs aren't your thing, then I understand.  The stairs at Symposium are a little scary because the treads are very shallow. I guess people had smaller feet back in the day when this old house was built.  One thing is for sure, those stairs are not up to the current building code!

Let's get on with the card, shall we?  This is one of the cards we made last weekend at Donna's party.  

I started with a folded card in Very Vanilla.  The front panel has an oval cut out of it with one of the Oval Framelits.  Then Mr. Cardinal is stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla and placed behind the oval cut-out.  I used the snowflake stamp from Snow Place to stamp some very light snowflakes behind the cardinal using Soft Sky ink. Then I used the same snowflake stamp to stamp snowflakes in Cherry Cobbler on the Cherry Cobbler panel, just for a little extra interest.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso and some Early Espresso Cotton Ribbon is tied around the frame.  You could easily make this card in quantity.  I hope by now that you've got the design picked out for your holiday cards.  You've still got plenty of time, so there's no need to panic... yet!

Has your Monday started off OK?  No coffee spilled down the front of you in the morning commute?  The traffic was no worse than usual?  Your car had enough gas to get you there?  In a world where so many things can go wrong, and many times do... I hope your week is off to the smoothest start possible!  

Hugs and happiness!
