Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

I'd like to wish you all a very blessed Christmas and a new year filled with many blessings!

I have a last minute Christmas card that I decided to make this afternoon before this evening's festivities.  We usually go out for Christmas Eve dinner and then to an evening service.  Our son plays the Hallelujah Chorus on the organ while the choir sings.  Anyone in the service may come up and join the choir singing the song.  We finish the service off with candle light singing Silent Night.  It's a tradition that I look forward to each year!

And, here is my Christmas card...

I started with a red card base and paired it with a scalloped panel that was die cut using a Mama Elephant die .  The city scene was a prize gift that I received a couple days ago from Lori Hairston Chouxchoux Paper Art.  Thanks so much, Lori!!  I was inspired by her Christmas card, which can be seen below.

Also, I used distress inks of spun sugar, twisted citron, and mowed lawn.  The sentiment die is from Elizabeth Craft Design.  The holly on the lamp post is from Paper Sweeties-Sweet Cuts-Jingle All the Way. 

And, here is Lori's card...

I love the pink and aqua against the black background.  The silver border is a great addition.

Ok, well, that's it for me this Christmas season.  Have a wonderful blessed Christmas!  Thank you so much for taking time out to view my card today!  Take care!
