Getting Ready For Christmas

It's that time of year, the mad dash is on to get my Holiday cards created, if I start now and make a couple a day, I should be good to go. I still had my stamps out from yesterdays Kitchen Sink Stamps Holiday Release post, so I reached for those again today!

I'm just loving the Multi Step Build a Garland, so I incorporated it into today's card, taking creative liberties with KSS Challenge 19, stringing my garland across the beautiful Wassail pattern paper from Basic Grey. The sentiment from the Multi Step Hanukkah set is stamped in Black on White card stock.
