Time for some Christmas Cheer

Happy Monday! - Look what arrived here yesterday.  -  Oh I am so NOT a fan of winter but this little one sure loves it.

We even went out and built a snowman together. - Should have got those Christmas decorations up on Saturday as it looks like we're in for more of the "white stuff" this week.

So now I'm going to share some Christmas cards with you to help get you in the mood.
I recently participated in a Mystery Image swap and the Hostess sent everyone this awesome packet of pre-stamped images along with papers, embellishment's to create our card/s with.  We had to send one card to our partner and the rest of the supplies we could do whatever we wanted to with them.  Most of us decided to make 4 cards and share how we used the items we were sent.  So here are my 4 cards:

Supplies:  Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Certainly Celery and the Designer Paper is: Jolly Holiday
Stamp Set: Contempo Christmas

We were able to add any embellishments that Rose did not include in the packet and I did use some Old Olive brad and some Silver Cording on two of the cards.

Have a great day.  I need to go shovel snow.  UGH!
