The true gift of Christmas

 I apologize to those who think it is too early to start on Christmas cards, but, it's the only way I can get them all finished in time!

Cutie Pie Challenge #35--sketch (sorry, just realized this is supposed to be "cute" but those little gray snowflakes are cute, right?)
Eureka Stamps #21--make it sparkle
C.R.A.F.T. #189--color combo (white, gray, and three shades of blue)
JUGS #171--dry embossing with added ink (I embossed my center strip and then rubbed silver ink over the embossing directly from the inkpad)

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #107--no reindeer
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra--any Christmas card

Stamps: Verve "Star of Wonder", "Richly Blessed"
Paper: My Time Made Easy "12 Days of Snowflakes-blue"
