20 Weeks Until Christmas

I hope I have not gotten into a bad habit by posting late the past two weeks in my Countdown to Christmas posts. This and last week I participated in blog hops with fellow Close To My Heart Independent Consultants, I attended family reunions two Saturdays in a row, had some automotive repairs completed and had to shop for a new kitchen appliance. I hope things slow down after school starts, but I am not sure how since I do not have children in school.

I tried to finish this card before the Annual Inspirations New Product Blog Hop started. If I had, I would have shared this card on that post and the Christmas cards with you today, but the minutes ticked down and I ran out of time. Instead I finished this card after dark and took photos of it this morning.

I was inspired by the Sun Dial™ Pattern on page 14 of Wishes™. I modified the pattern a bit and I am pleased with the results. I hope you like it too. I would love to hear what you think.

I used Artbooking and my Cricut® Explore to cut the circles at 3 and 3.35 inches (image #M46F6E if you use Cricut® Design Space). I stamped and then I cut the circle to create the "sun" effect.
