Create along with us Papertrey ink

So one of the first Christmas cards I worked on this weekend was a card that was inspired by Papertrey Ink's December release.  Here is the card I made.

Below is my inspiration from Amy Scheffer.  You can see the details of her card on her blog.

I hope you are enjoying pre-Christmas festivities.  We had a fun weekend up in NH at Little Bear Lodge, our little cabin in the woods.  Sarah, Ivan, Eric and Jessa all joined us.  We found a great tree (at a nice last minute price) and did some very simple decorations on the tree.  We have a pile of pinecones still to add, once they dry and open.  We can do that when we are up later this week.  The lights are on and some red berry garland. We also added a bunch of white crochet snowflakes.  It looks rustic and pretty with the burlap and fleece tree skirt.

Sarah decorated this adorable sled she found at a yard sale this summer and it looks great under the sign Bob had made for us.  Even though there is no snow (and no expectation for snow this week) Little Bear Lodge is all festive.


After decorating, I got busy making cards.  I'll post them over the next few days.  Today we got to go for our traditional long walk.  To go to the top of the hill and down to the road again is 4.2 miles. Today we didn't go all the way, we turned around early, but it was a good 3.5 miles.  We don't bring Joey, he's not up for those long walks anymore, but Tank enjoyed the brisk winter air.  Don't you love the New England stone walls that are just out in the woods?  It's kind of a neat and unique feature of a walk in the woods in these parts.
