holidays....

This year I really want to be very organised with my Christmas gifts and my Christmas cards. I really want to enjoy the holiday season without feeling any stress! Winter Wonderland has a challenge this week: Include lots of holly, reds and greens!

At Christmas I love lots of garland with lots of little white lights all over the place....so for me this card represents the front door of my house which when you open it takes you inside! Lots of garland, the hats and mitts hanging at the front door...all ready to hit the ice rink in the back yard, the snowflake represents the snow falling outside!

I punched out a snowflake and then used it as a template to make snowflakes using my powdered chalks.I then had this Warm and Wonderful stamp set from Gina K Designs....love that stamp set!


I hope you have some time to get started on your Christmas cards.....

Have a wonderful weekend, and thank-you so much for popping in for a visit!

  12. How sweet is this Christine. I love the way you have used the inside as the main focus. You know I adore this little stamp set with those cute mittens. (My hubby is sitting here drinking tea and loves the pumpkins on your background. Reminds him of new England in the fall.) Thanks for playing along at Winter Wonderland. Hope to see you back on Friday. Marianne x
