First Christmas Card of the Season

Just finished this Christmas card using an idea from my dear friend, Christel.  The tree is Stampin' Up's "O' Tannenbaum" and the rose toile background is Stampin' Up's Elements of Style.  The sentiment is a Michael's dollar bin find.  For ink I chose Real Red and Kiwi Kiss.  (I have a ton of Kiwi Kiss paper.)  Think I'll try some other color combos.

Christmas in the Air!

It's freezing here in Southern California, down to 34 tonight, and it sure is bringing in the holiday season.  Even though I love Thanksgiving, with all the colors, smells, and the general feeling of blessing and gratitude, I'm getting really excited about decorating for Christmas.  Here is my latest published work from the holiday issue of The Stamper's Sampler made exclusively with stamps from Oxford Impressions.  I used the St. Nicholas collection and the Bon Bon collection, which brings to mind the joy of special Christmas sweets.
