Hello Blogger Friends! Hope this Thursday finds you happy and well.
Well ,it's 3 weeks until Christmas and I feel like I am a bit behind where I wanted to be at this point. But, today is another aggressive work day for me and I hope to get a lot accomplished. I hope to get 2 trees decorated today.
I have already started getting Christmas cards in the mail and mine are not ready to be mailed yet. Or, I should say I don't have enough made to mail. Every year I say I will get involved in the Christmas card challenges in blogland, but I don't do it. That will be a resolution for me again next year. So I will see where that goes (lol)!!
Now onto my card for today.  I had this idea for this card floating around in my head for awhile. It turned out just like I pictured it. I used a lot of different dies and stamps to create it.
My card colors are from the Splitcoaststampers CC502. Vicki is our hostess and she chose marina mist, midnight muse and gumball green. Option is to use a die cut word.
The colors were perfect for my Santa scene.

 My background snowfall is done with the MFT "snowfall" stamp. I stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The Santa and reindeer are cut in midnight muse with a die by Impression Obsession. The moon is cut with a Spellbinders circle die in some textured silver metallic I had in my stash. The believe word is a die from Elizabeth Crafts.

The landscape was created with stamps and dies from PTI- the holiday home set and the rolling hill is the "in the meadow" die. I added some chunky glitter to the hill. My evergreen trees are a die from Memory Box.
I may make a few more of this card. With all the dies, it made it fairly easy to assemble.
Well, Blogger Friends it's time to close this post and get moving on my decorating day. So until next time.........God bless.
