It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

>> Saturday, November 28, 2015

Good morning!
I am so excited to use these new stamps from DRS!  
Outside the window we have the park gazebo and town clock.  We can also see the stone sign welcoming visitors to Christmas Village. It is snowing too...and we have quite the accumulation of snow growing higher and higher! The kids can't wait till tomorrow morning to go outside and play in the first snow of the season.
Inside there is a cozy fire going in the fireplace and the mistress of the house has already started to decorate for Christmas.  She always puts pretty brightly colored ornaments and white twinkle lights in the greenery above the windows.  Then she moves the Christmas tree into the living room (or hubby does anyway!) and starts the kids decorating the bottom while she, on a ladder, decorates the top.  They have the Chrismas music playing and everyone sings to their favorite songs.  Mom's favorite is "Silver Bells", daddy loves "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and the kids like Jingle Bells best.
Everyone is excited for the Christmas season here in Christmas Village.
The Town Clock, Village sign, and Gazebo are all new releases at DRS Designs.  They go perfectly with last year's Christmas Village pieces.
I used parts of a window die, branch punch (Martha Stewart) and I dyed lace and ribbon for the window treatment.
To dress up the outside I added glitter to the snow and for the inside I added Glossy Accents to the ornaments.
Thanks for visiting and come back again soon!

What a fabulous story and a lovely Christmas Card - I like winter as long as I am inside nice and toasty warm - just saying - LOL - but as a kid I could not wait to go sledding, ice skating and build a snowman! Enjoy

Robin, love your little story! Love this card too - that window scene is wonderful inside and outside. Love the colorful balls - I so need to do something like this inside my house - would look fabulous on my kitchen window. Beautiful work. Hugz
