Clean and Simple Christmas!

Don't you wish all of them could be that way?!  From Thanksgiving weekend to Christmas it's usually sheer craziness here with three girls all anticipating the arrival of Santa, lol.  So, in an effort to make things easier on myself this year, I figured I would start my cards early and figure out something that doesn't require hours in my craft corner!!

The TLC Christmas Club is helping me reach my goal this year - every day several delicious Christmas papers, images, and sentiments are sent to my inbox and give me inspiration to lay down a card or two.  It's been wonderful, lemme tell you!!!  And if you're getting in the Spirit of the holidays like I am and need a jump start on your holiday Mojo, click here to find out how you can sign up for the remainder of club for a discount!

I used one of the pre-colored stocking images from the club and printed it out three times on my cardstock.  I hung them up with care and a bit of pink twine I won in some blog candy.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Club as well - and I just love it because that happens to be my favorite Christmas song.  :)

Hoping you have a warm, wonderful day :)
