Christmas Eve Post!

Hi Friends!

Hope all your Christmas preparations are well on their way - if not done! - and you're planning a fun holiday with your family!  I know we're really looking forward to going to my sister's house and celebrating with her family!  We attended our Christmas Candlelight Service this past Saturday evening and I've prepared some traditional family recipes for our Christmas dinner (Posole and red chili !).  I even tried out a new Pinterest-inspired treat ("Trisha Yearwood's Crockpot Chocolate") that I'll be bringing to our get together, so I'm excited to get the party started!


Meanwhile, I've got my weekly Heartfelt Creations post for you and I wanted to make it a "festive" card so it's all dressed up with shinny gold cardstock!  The paper collection I used on this is called "Antiquity" (LOVE this collection!!) and the die cut flowers are made with the Arianna Blooms dies.  I added stamen centers and a little bit of flourish from the coordinating Arianna Lace dies in black cardstock along with a gold Spellbinders Lattice Die background.
As always, the step by step instructions for my card can be found on the Heartfelt Creations Blog and there's lots more to see while you're there today!!  The awesome HC Design Team outdid themselves!!  Hope you'll check it out!

Have a wonderful blessed Christmas my friends!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Merry Christmas!
