1st Christmas card for 2013

Hello there!
Been a little quiet on the blog.
Kids are back in school, Christmas decor is all packed away, and I am caught up with the Card Drive for Addison.  As of today, I have received 244 cards!!

I have been having fun doing some scrapbooking. My layouts are hard to share b/c they always have pics of other people in them.  I finished my 12th page today (6 two page LOs).  I had started a few over the holiday break. 

Sooooo, I took some time to make a card today.
This card features a new stamp I got for Christmas picked out by our older son and a new 6x6 pad I grabbed after Christmas for $1.79!   Yahoo!

I stamped the deer on the die cut and colored him with Copics.

2013 Christmas Card

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper: Recollections "Festivus"
Stamps: Hero Arts 
Inks: Memento, Distress in Barn Door and Broken China
Other: Cricut "George", Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles, gems, ribbon, string, pop dot. TH distress tool

With my own card Drive winding down, I saw that Winter Sims is having her annual Cards from the Heart Card Drive that collects Valentine's for hospitals, foster homes and special education groups (depends on how many are sent).  Check it out.  There are amazing prizes!  I KNOW that the cards that are received in a card drive are greatly appreciated and touch lives!  Check out the LINK for the details. I will be participating again this year.  

Have a great day,

It's wonderful to hear that the card drive for Allison was such a success. I hope all those cards bring a bit of comfort to the family.

Your card is stunning! Love that panel with the deer.
