Country Christmas

It's time for our mid-month inspiration on the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra blog.  We are an anything goes (Christmas-related, of course), month-long challenge, so you have plenty of time to enter in AND work on your Christmas card stash at the same time.
I love this country Christmas image and I wanted to give it just the slightest bit of color (though I have used it with absolutely no coloring) so I pulled out my colored pencils.  I haven't used them in quite a while.  Head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT has created and them come play along.  I love Christmas and I can't wait to see what you have created.
