Merry Merry Christmas!!!! =D

Hello blogland!  So what's up?  I have so much fun to share with you today!!!  Though I can't believe it, it's almost the end of October, and Christmas is right around the corner!  I've got several Christmas-y projects to share today!

First, I have a Christmas card that I'm going to use as one that I'll mass-produce to send out to everyone!  It's clean and simple, and I LOVE that I got to use my Copics on it:

I just LOVE Lawn Fawn's Ornate Ornaments set!  I stamped the string, ornaments and sentiment, colored the ornaments with copics, and then added the starts as a final touch!  I'm submitting this card for a few challenges this week:
1.  CAS-ual Fridays #25 - Just Add Color!
2.  Wee Memories Challenge #75 - Free For All
3. Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes! 
All of the supplies for both of these projects will be included at the end of my post!  =D  Yay!  Ok I know this is turning into a LONG post, but I ALSO have a Scrapbooking Layout (yes, a LAYOUT) to share with you today!  Our challenge yesterday for Latrice's Handmade Holidays class was to create a scrapbooking layout with a very fun sketch!  I used the sketch to make a layout for a scrapbook that I have for my husband and I and our life together!  I *finally* made a layout for our first Christmas that we were married:

I'm actually really glad with how nicely this turned out!  The journaling at the bottom says "We spent our first married Christmas with our families - 2008"  I'm also glad that I used some stitching around the outside, which gives a really fabulous homey touch!  =)  I hope you like the layout!

Okie dokie!  It's time to enjoy my evening with my husband!  Stay crafty friends!
