Christmas Magic

Are you ready yet for Christmas?  I am all done with my baking, handmade cards sent, shopping done, and now for the DREADFUL wrapping.  I wish I could pay someone to just wrap all my presents.....I would pay top dollar! This is a card that uses my favorite stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog...Christmas Magic found on page 22.  This set is one that I will probably keep for a long time and not include in my yearly garage sale.  There are SO many things you can do with it!
