CCAYR mid-November 2017 DT post

Hey everybody!  How's it going?  Things are mostly OK here.  I am a little bit unsettled, as my current job will be ending December 22.  Depending on the workflow, it could be sooner than that.  I have interviewed for another job in the same field, but have yet to hear anything one way or the other.  I am supposed to hear this week...it's been a nerve-wracking week!  On a good note, tomorrow we are having a company-sponsored Thanksgiving dinner at work, so that is something to look forward to!  I haven't worked at this place for very long (3 years), but I will miss the friends I have made when the time comes to leave. 
:(
 
Anyway, on to happier things...how is your Christmas card stash coming along?  I think mine is looking pretty good, but I gotta keep adding on...Christmas will roll around again next year!  LOL!  So, here is the latest card for my stash, which I made for the Christmas Cards All Year Round mid-month inspiration post:
 
The theme for this month was Candies, Cookies or Gingerbread, and I had a plethora of images I could have chosen from my collection of digis, stamps, and cut files.  I decided on a print and cut Silhouette file, which printed out with lines on it?!  I tried to print it again, but it was worse, so I used this one.  For the rest of the card, I used a piece of green glitter card stock to cover the card front, a smaller piece of designer paper from the DCWV Mrs. Claus's Kitchen stack, and the 2 fishtail banners are also from that stack.  Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide ink was used to ink the edges of the image panel while still in the Spellbinder's die, to get that nice white border.  I will save a sentiment for the inside on this one.
