FF175 Joyful Christmas

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope you have something fun planned to do today!  My day seems to have gotten away from me already!  Off to a very slow start!  Anyway, I have a Christmas card for you, using the Fab Friday sketch:

and I used the adorable hostess set Holiday Haul...I just love all those little images, they're so fun!  I used some papers from CTMH for all my backgrounds as well:

The circular piece was cut from a scrapbooking card; I added a stitched layer of snow and stamped the truck and tree on separate pieces of cardstock and cut them out....the wheels were punched from Basic Black cardstock with an 1/8" punch and glued on!  I used a white gel pen to add the centers:

The sentiment is from an older Papertrey set; the snowflake is also from Holiday Haul; I punched it out with a 1/4" punch and mounted it on a 1/2" punched layer.  The bottom portion of the sentiment is diecut with the scallop border die from Be Mine...that set is worth buying, just to have that little die, LOL!

I added a liberal sprinkling of Ice Stampin' Glitter on the tree and ground too!  Such a fun, cheery card!  Thanks for popping in today!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

I have to brag on my daughter a wee bit....she made this stunning wreath for her door:

She actually crocheted around a metal wreath frame, then added the flowers and bow!  We were joking about where we get our maternal grandmother loved to craft, but she passed away just about the time I was getting the crafty bug, so we never really had much time to craft together.  My maternal grandfather was a florist, not only did he have greenhouses, but he also had a shop and did flower arranging.  So I would say Dana and I got our genes from that side of the family!  Either way, I am proud of all the crafty goodness she added to this, it's beautiful!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Love this card LeAnne; you’ve inspired me to hunt through my stash for some paper to match this stamp set too! The glitter makes the whole thing sparkle so prettily. The creative win today definitely goes to Dana though - that wreath is stunning! What a clever idea to crochet the wreath, the whole thing is truly beautiful. She is one talented lady!
