Twas The Night Before Christmas

Good Morning All,

Wow, Christmas is inching closer....have you all started on your shopping?? I've gotten a few things as I only go out during the week. :D

We have a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments Designs: Challenge - Christmas. We want to see all your wonderful craft projects or cards for Christmas.
 Crafty Sentiments Designs Store

Today I have a great little card for you. I have been seeing people doing these little Tea Light Card Holders I just think they are such an awesome "gift idea". You give the card along with a little tea light candle holder. 
Well I made one using an super cute image from Crafty Sentiments Designs Stamp store named A Christmas Story, it's an adorable image showing a little girl reading a story to her little bear before bedtime. I had to use this image with Graphic 45 Twas The Night Before Christmas paper, it reminded me of how we use to read this story to our girls (now grown) when they were little every Christmas Eve.

Here is my card/project - this turned out so nice, I plan on making a few more, these were so easy.

I fussy cut my Graphic 45 paper using the clocks, green & red holly and 
Santa and popped them up. 
Don't you just think these little Candle Light Tea Cards are such
wonderful little gifts for the holiday. Especially for teachers, co-workers,
even family and friends.
