Merry Christmas!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
How are all my bloggy friends doing? Are you ready for Christmas? Ofta, I stopped at the store to grab a few groceries this afternoon.....yikes, it's crazy out there, lol!
I seriously still can't believe how fast Christmas came this year. For me, this whole year feels like it flew by! I am hoping next year slows down a bit and there is a little more time to relax~

Today I have quick Christmas card to share with you:
 For this card, I used SU lost lagoon card stock and followed with a white base layer.  The next layer is embossed with Tim Holtz Alterations wood grain folder for some dimension. 
 The deer is Tim Holtz Prancing Deer die~I love this die!
I tied on a little bell with natural Jute String and then tied a bow. I then added foam dots and adhered it in place. Isn't it pretty?
The little snowflakes were added along with some fun sequins to the center. 
I finished with a pretty chevron bow and a small charm from SU which again was tied on with natural Jute String. The sentiment is stamped with My Craft Spot's Joy Filled Christmas stamp set.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge~Anything Goes
2.) Love Rubberstamps Blog  Challenge #131 Holiday Blitz
3.) Pumpkin Spice Challenge #96 Blue & White
4.) Paper Issues Making it Merry 
5.) DL.ART Dec Linky~Anything Goes
