Christmas Joys

Happy Friday!
Not too many days left until Christmas! And what a difference a year makes. This time last year, we were freezing... today the temp was almost 70 degrees! Very weird! I don't know about you, but I like it to be cold around Christmas. At least sweater weather.

So to put me in the mood, I made a snowy white card. This one is pretty clean and simple. I stamped the vertical trees w/ green ink and die cut w/ a long rectangle. The greeting and single tree were stamped on the smaller die cut panel and I lined up the tree and stamped it again on the larger panel. Added a few red lights (or berries) and some red stickles to the trees.
I added just the star from the manger scene above the greeting. Actually, I had to add something because I apparently had a little green ink on my finger when I was gluing the layers to the card. But it worked it out ok. I added a little rhinestone in the middle of the star and my 5.50 x 4.25 card was finished.

So tell me, do you prefer your Christmas cold or not? And did you check out Thursday's Challenge? Surely you'd like a chance for free stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
