World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Happy World Card Making Day 2011!  

I hope you get to celebrate this day making your own cards.  Isn't it great to have a day to celebrate doing something that we LOVE!  For me, making cards feeds my creative side and my family and friends get to receive the end results!  It is a win-win situation for everyone!

So to celebrate this day I have not a but 2 cards for you in honor of WCMD and my favorite time of the year - CHRISTMAS!  I love everything about Christmas and as my family knows I love to decorate my house for the holiday season and spend HOURS decorating our Christmas tree.  It is a total labor of love.

I also love winter time and snow on trees.  This card that I made exemplifies how beautiful it is here in New England when there is fresh snow on the evergreen trees.  It is breathtaking!

My favorite Christmas story is The Polar Express and the Santa image from the A Christmas Carol set reminds me of it.    

Card Details:  All products A Muse Studio except where noted. 
Images: Winter Stag & A Christmas Carol
Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, a|s Sugar, Winter Sky and Navy
