Christmas Morning...

Well it is definitely a rainy Monday here...I awoke to wind and rain and thunder and lightening!  My husband had a call early that a customer had a tree blow down in his yard during the storm...It means more work for him, but I hate when a storm takes out a tree...they can go anywhere! 

I took time out of my schedule to finish a Christmas Card that I have been working on for about a week!  I only get to do a little here and a little there and I'm really feeling deprived!  I'm hoping it will get cold enough soon and I will have to put the rest off until Spring.  He....he.....  I'm entering this in Joan's Gardens Challenge #20.

 It calls for:
A tree (any kind)
An embossed object (not a background)
Something cut out with a die

I stamped my tree from Clear Stamps and embossed with white embossing powder.  The star in the tree top is a star shaped brad.  I cut out the image with a Spellbinders Die  (The image is Mo Manning and she is colored with Ranger Distress Inks.  All points covered.  I also embossed part of the base card with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder to add a little dimension to the card.

I hope you enjoy this little beauty!  I just love the image!  This is one more down for my Christmas Cards!
Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

This is so beautiful! I love this image also and the way you paired with the tree is just lovely. I guess we need compensation for winter weather and more craft time sounds perfect to me! LOL!

Hi Glenda! this is beautiful! Love the colored image! Lucky you, making christmas cards, I just can not get in the mood. It is supposed to be 90 today and maybe 40 at night on Friday! I am about to be tired of leaves, but I want to work on some stamped flowers.
