Hello friends and good morning. I hope you're having a great weekend. Glad that I was able to sleep in a bit this morning.

I do have a card to share. It's time for another One Stitch at a Time challenge. The theme this fortnight is Anything Goes With Leaves.  This time of the year Fall should be in the air but here it is still Summer. I decided to do a Christmas card. I do like the way it came out.
