Chantons, chantons Noël, / Carolling Christmas!

Happy Friday,
The countdown for Christmas is well under way... Only at the supermaket I could feel the pressure, everyone rushing around. Well... I had time for a last Christmas card. A special order for my son's friend. She wants to offer it to her grandmother, who loves hand made things and music, Mo's Carolers Tree just imposed itself to me.  I printed the image on Strathmore Bristol Vellum, and colored with Faber Castel. My papers are from Basic Grey, Nordic Holiday collection, that I brought back from one of my latests visit at Scrapbook ta vie. I used lovely glittering leaves, and branches offered by a dear friend. The nice little berries are from the dollar store, as well as the cute pointsettia. the ribbon, bell and chain are from my stash. The sentiment is from Magenta.
Bon Vendredi,
Il y a de l'effervescence dans l,air, et c'est palpable, plus on s'approche de Noël. Juste à l'épicerie, on pouvait sentir l'énervement ce midi. Juste le temps pour moi de vous présenter une dernière carte de Noël. C'est une commande spéciale pour la grand-maman d'une amie de mon fils, qui aime la musique et les choses faites à la main. L'image de Mo Manning, Carolers tree. s'est tout de suite imposée à moi. Pour l'accompagner, j,ai choisi les papiers de Bssic Grey, Nordic Holiday, que j,avais rapportés d'une de mes expéditions chez Scrapbook ta Vie. J'ai décoré avec de jolies feuilles en brillant, et des branches offertes par une amie très chère. Les petits fruits sont du dolorama, tout comme le petit pointsettia. Les rubans sont de mon inventaire, ainsi que la chaine et le grelot. Le sentiment est de Magenta.

 I  love using my scrap of papers to decorate the inside of the card, and those folded pockets, are just perfect for that. Enough place to insert a gift card, or money.
J'utilise mes chutes de papiers pour décorer l'intérieur, et une pochette croisée s'y prête vraiment bien. L'endroit idéal pour y glisser un certificat ou une carte cadeau, ou des sous.

I printed the sentiment again on parchment paper, and used sizzix doves to decorate. I cut them in reflecting paper, I had pieces of. the same sentiment was used.
J'ai fait un rappel du sentiment à l'intérieur, sur un papier parchemin, décoré avec des colombes, une découpe de Sizzix. 

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas. All the best for 2012, Health, Peace and Love. And... lots of ME-TIME for crafting. I would also like to thank you for your support and constant encouragements all through this year, this sharing just make my creativity bloom.

Je prends ce moment pour vous souhaiter un Joyeux Noël, et tout le meilleur pour l'année 2012: Santé, Paix et Amour. Et... beaucoup de temps pour la créativité! Je voudrais aussi vous remercier de vos encouragements constants tout au long de l'année, ce partage a fait s'épanouir ma créativité et mes idées.

See you all in 2012!
On se revoit en 2012.
