A very happy Thursday to everyone! I hope your week is going along very well and that you are enjoying each and every moment of it! I'm sure that many of you are treading water over all of the demands of the holiday season...but just slow down and smell the poinsettias...hahahah...I have one in my living room but not sure it has a scent at all!!!
This is a card I made for the October 2012 Issue of the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine which you can find right HERE. Of course I used a darling image from the Merry Christmas Whimsy Prints Collection. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the BoBunny Rejoice Collection. To add another layer, the image was placed on a square paper doily. The Satin Ribbon, tied over the top corners into double flat bows, are topped with holly buttons from my stash. The bottom floral treatment consists of 15mm Open Roses, a 25mm Open Rose, Carnations, and several large holly berries. The front was finished with more holly buttons on the bottom corners.
Speaking of holly, in my organizing (cough cough) I found an extra Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Holly Leaves set that I would love to send to one of my FOLLOWERS. If it has to be mailed outside the US, I will remove it from the packaging to save on shipping. Please just leave your information with the little Blue Froggy before Sunday, December 9 at 8 AM EST to be in for the draw! Good Luck!!
For those of you who have asked how I store my MS punches...here ya go!!!
Now you know why I have had no idea what I have and why I have duplicates...hahahahah...I have said that in the New Year, that I am NOT going to buy another MS punch...I don't care what the latest and greatest is!!!!!!
Thank you so very much for dropping by today and I hope to see you again very soon!!! Until the next time, I send big hugs to each of you!!!

Terrific card!!!! Love the traditional colours and the gorgeous flowers!!!! My jaw dropped when I saw the picture with all your MS punches!!!! There's a lot, lol!!! Hugs, Brigitte
Such a lovely card, Jacque! The colours are so festive and bright. I had to smile when I saw your punches....all so neat and tidy. Must be a full time job keeping them that way!
Your card is so pretty and so is your punch display!
Maybe you could punch some index cards and put them on a key ring so you can have a fandex at hand for a quick reference as to what you have and what's still on your wish list (and yes, you have to keep your wish list).
What a wonderful card,I love the image and the colours.
So gorgeous papers and the details.

Lovely card! And also a nice picof your punches... Never seen so much together:-)
Your card is so pretty. Wow, that is some collection of punches!!
WOW what fab punches, thanks for offering this kind candy x
Ok, I don't have to 'hide' my punches anymore so I don't look so punch-crazy!!! You definately beat me on this one! Great storage though! I am in the midst of building my craft room and punch organization is still up in the air. Will definately consider your idea! Part of the key to not buying dups is tagging them immediately with a pen or label, then creating a spreadsheet--and, carrying it with you at all times! I am part way there. Don't you just hate it, though, when you shop at Michaels and JoAnns and you just can't find any new punch that you don't already have? So annoying!!!
WOW just a few punches there!!! Gorgeous card x
gorgeous card with great colouring and stunning details, Jacque...was, that are a lot of punches!!

Love your card! The ribbons on the corners with the holly leaves are a great accent. Your cards always have so many pretty layers and trims!
Your punches look awesome! I have a few hung over towel rods, some on shelves, a few in rolling plastic drawers and some small ones in oraganizer drawers. I would love to have them all in one spot but it's either organize and clean my scrappy room or play with paper...the playing with paper usually wins! lol
Thanks for sharing! :)
Com essas cores, tradicionais de Natal, o cartão ficou lindíssimo Jacque!
Oh que bela coleção de furadores MS! Só com 10 deles ficaria muito feliz!!! risos

Your card is so pretty. I really like the way you added the two slanted bows.
Thanks for sharing how you store your punches. I am looking for the best way to store mine.
Well, aren't I completely jealous!! Love your punch collection! I have to admit, I have punches I've never used - I just like lining them up like yours and just looking at them!
OMG!!! That is a lot of punches. Is it the angle of the photo or is that poor shelf bowing?? I love it that you don't have any idea what you own. Makes me feel much less guilty about the numerous stamps I own that have never seen ink. cheers Linda
Sorry I was so in awe of your punch collection I forgot to say how lovely your card was. Love the ribbons on the corners - fantastic!! cheers Linda
