Fabulous "Folk Art Festival"

 ***To check out my current giveaway, please click HERE ***

Greetings crafty friends! I hope everyone is surviving the holiday madness, lol. My biggest challenge around this holiday time is to stop buying stuff for myself & start focusing on others. I know it's really selfish, but is it still bad if I'm confessing it? I know - clearly I have issues, but who doesn't, right? I'm just sayin'....

Anyway, enough about me (at least for right now). I have a Christmas card to share with you today, which I'm very excited to say that I made with my new "Folk Art Festival" cartridge. I saw this cartridge when it first came out on "Hello Thursday" & I have been obsessed with getting it ever since. So, after going to 3 different Michaels stores (it's a Michaels exclusive), I finally found one! And it was on sale for $34, so merry early Christmas to yours truly! So, here is the first card I've made with it....

SIZE:  4.5"
CARTRIDGES:  "Folk Art Festival" & "Mr. Frosty"
INKCTMH Exclusive Inks "Hollyhock"
