Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone and hope you are doing well.
Currently, we have really cold weather here in N. Ky and I think it is going to be a long and cold winter. I hope not but the Farmers Almanac says a warmer winter is on the way. Well, time will tell.

Next week here in the US. we will be celebrating Thanksgiving Day on Thursday.

Yum - Turkey and dressing and all the trimmings. Looking forward to that.

And you know 4 weeks later we will be celebrating Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, do you have your cards finished??

This year I am prepared (for a change).



Today is the start of the latest challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends
The sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter


And I chose to use the Holy Night image. 
What a wonderful set.
The image of the girl and the deer and the background of the wintry trees, beautiful.
Let me share with you how my card turned out.

I  layered my blue base card with a beautiful blue glitter paper and I then cut an oval out on the card front. I positioned the girl and her deer on the edge of the oval with snow studded pine trees right to the side of her.


Next, I added some pinkish poinsettias on the opposite side of the oval,
 giving some balance to the card front. 




Opening the card, you see the lovely wintry snow scene.

The sentiment really says it all.


I am submitting this card to the following challenges:


I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and will link up a project at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends!  We'd love to see what you create!  Don’t forget, the theme is always – Anything Goes

Have a great week and see you again soon.
