Happy Monday!

WOW the last Monday of the year!! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. We went into Christmas with zero expectations since our entire extended family was all without power for so long prior. And it was actually really nice! Everything "Christmassy" we were able to accomplish seemed like a bonus and everything else was very toned down, so very little stress:) Santa left me quite a few gift certificates(hand stamped by my hubby I might add) so I can not wait to spend those!!!
I did find some post season sales at my local craft store and picked up this fabby K&C Company paper along with the jumbo fabric-covered brad. I thought they were buttons at first, but even better, they're brads!!
The layout for this card is from Katharina's sketch challenge. And that super cute seal is one of the new stamps from Whimsy Stamps. I colored him in with my colored pencils and gave him a fun little "ball." I used my 1" circle punch for the base of the ball. Then I tied a smidge of gray taffeta ribbon and added some baja breeze striped ribbon as well. Hopefully I'll have more time this week to catch up on visiting some blogs as things settle down.

Thanks for stoppin' by!
