today is get started... Christmas and/or the sketch. Yikes you know is not quite 60 days away!! This is my first Christmas card. I really like this pretty image, Don't you think it has a very warm welcoming look to it? You can find this lovely image called Winter Window at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. The image is water colored and stickles added to the snow. The tree and window awning were cut out and pop dotted up for dimension. The plaid and image were cut with a Spellbinder Label #17 and the sentiment was cut with a Spellbinder Label #10.

Davi, the card for your Dad is very special and how wonderful he has reached his 89th birthday.

Love your Christmas card. The pretty image is even prettier with that awesome plaid behind it. I have several Christmas cards made...probably because they are my favorite to make.


Your card is beautiful! May I ask you to correct the info about the Christmas Inspirations challenge? The challenge is BOW that you have on your card but you wrote that the challenge is die cuts....
Thanks for joining us at Christmas Inspirations!

Both cards tunred out gorgeous but the one made for your dad took my breath away. I just love neutrals and this card turned out gorgeous for a very special man in your life. Not too feminine but it certainly has a touch of chic. Wonderful job; stunning result!
