Christmas Time's a'Comin'

I can almost believe it this morning, with a delicious nip in the air!

I wandered over to the Hero Arts Club Blog yesterday and discovered a new holiday challenge underway.  Hooray!  That's just what I need.  For my mother's birthday this year, I'd like to give her a stack of Christmas cards ready for sending.  I only have two or three so far, so I'd better get busy!

This idea happened by accident.  I'd stamped these Winter Trees from Hero Arts and had that piece lying on my desk.  Meanwhile, I die-cut an oval for another card.  I tossed aside the paper that was leftover from that oval, and it landed on top of these stamped trees.  I fell in love with that look. 

A touch of scoring and the deer on the outside of the card really set it off.

I'm entering this card in the "White Out" category of the Hero Arts Holiday Challenge.  

Thanks for visiting!
Come back soon!


  1. Absolutely GORGEOUS. I love it. Amazingly elegant and stylish.

  2. This is stunning. Love how you made the inside and the window. I'm sure I could never get something properly lined up like you did. It's just perfect.


Thanks for stopping by. I truly appreciate your comments.
