Merry Monday #42

Where has the year gone?  So hard to believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away!  Almost time to start mailing out your Christmas cards...if you have yet to make yours, time to get stampin!  Here is the sketch this week at Merry Monday-

I strayed a little from the original sketch....I was determined to use up the last of my Pear & Partridge Rub-ons this holiday season.  My decorative shape and layer were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
