Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop

If you are looking for today's Cut-it-up post, scroll down to the previous post. 


Hello fine friends!  Thank you for joining us on this fun winter blog hop!  I can only imagine how much fun you are having so far!!!!!!  

Speaking of fun, you should have arrived here from the wonderful Joyce M's blog.  If not, you may want to go back to the beginning/check in at the Lawnscaping blog to make sure you hit all the stops...because there are prizes to be given away!!!!!  You have until 12/15 @ 11:59 pm to comment on all the blogs for your chance at those prizes.  Details about the prizes are on the Lawnscaping blog

I singing some Christmas tunes with my little one before settling down to work on my card and I was filled with that holiday spirit and sense of wonder.  So... I couldn't resist the urge to to have Mr. C peaking out of the chimney to see if the coast is clear and the kiddos are in bed so he can deliver gifts and fill the stockings! Not to worry, they are snug in their beds!  SC has time to make his deliveries and eat a few cookies too!  Yum!  

I had a ton of fun making this card using my new to me Cozy Christmas set, Gnome Sweet Gnome and Hats off to You!  I loved layering and coloring and adding a fun bow for the finishing touch.  I hope you likey and are filled with the cheer of the season too!

Thanks for stopping friends and please come back again.  Now onto miss Nicole Galvadon's blog for more fabulous inspiration!

Happy Holidays!
