I found out today that this card was chosen as last weeks
winner at Merry Monday. Thank you for that honor and Congratulations
to all the ladies whose cards were chosen for honorable mention.
This week the theme at Merry Monday is to use a tree on your card.
I had an idea for this one right away. I've been in such a creative slump
lately that I have to tell you, it felt great to have an idea right away

I used a LOT of different supplies for this card. I've got a pile
of supplies that haven't seen the light of day. I've been wanting
to use the celebrate die from Penny Black for a while now. I hadn't
thought about using it on a Christmas card until today. I paired
it with the Jolly & Joyful stamp set from Lil' Inkers to make a
I know I'll be getting lots of use out of that celebrate die - I love
the font! Reverse Confetti has so many great dies that it's hard to use
just one - so I used three.
I love how all the different products came together on one card.
Update: I just came across a 'mission emboss-ible' challenge that
looks like fun at Jingle belles and since my card uses 3 embossing
folders I decided to add it to their challenge as well.
