Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Week 8

It's only March and I now have 8 Christmas Cards completed for this year!!! Joining this blog group was an EXCELLENT idea, however it just occured to me that most of my cards have been 6x6, which means more postage!!!! hmmmm must remember to make quarter fold cards!!!!

The challenge this week was to create a scene using Designer Paper. Gave me a good excuse to pull out my rarely used Cricut machine and put it to work!

So, I started by making the Trees and the scenery and then I needed to determine where I was going to go with this card. Then I thought that wee Tree cutting Riley would look pretty cute in this venue!

I coloured him and cut him out, mounting him on my heavily stitched layout. The Tree DP is from Crate paper, the Snowflakes from Bo Bunny Press

Here is a little close up image, if you look really close, you may be able to spot the difference between the two photos!!!! lol............I love those puzzles.........they run one in People Magazine and it's the first place I go to after reading the "scoop" page.

Anyway, hope you like my little creation. Don't forget to follow the links to the Other DT blogs..........such fun ideas!!!! We have two new additions to our Team

Cathy from My Creative Space and my super talented friend Jodi from Inked Inspirations

I will be cutting of the entries for the Blog Candy in my two previous Posts and will choose winners sometime in the early evening............. I'll announce the winners tomorrow
