Ho Ho Holy Cow, it's almost Christmas!

Went out this morning to get some last minute stocking stuffers and run a few errands. I had one of my fave pictures framed (finally) and it looks gorgeous. It is titled "Serengeti" by Steve Forney. This picture does not do the real print any justice.....

Then I had to stop by Costco and exchange a globe I bought for my son (and myself LOL). It is called the SmartGlobe and after one day my 5-year old son can already find the 7 continents. It's fun and a great learning tool.

I made a card using CPS sketch #96 (you can find the sketch HERE), was quick and fun but I am sorta so-so about the card. I tend to be really slow when I do anything crafty and this time I tried to be quick.

The bottom right corner is actually purple velvet, sorta hard to tell from the picture.
