A Tuesday Christmas Card

Good morningish.  He he he!  I am a little late getting this post going this morning but I have a good reason.  My oldest has his first wrestling match this afternoon!!!  I have no idea what a wrestling match is like at all but I'm still excited.  So, I spent the better part of the morning making sure he had everything he needed packed in his bag.  Then, of course, the zipper pulled out and if you've ever fixed a zipper, you can feel my pain.  Luckily, I got it all fixed and stitched up so it shouldn't happen again.  Thank goodness my mom taught me to cross stitch and I had an awesome teacher in middle school that appreciated what I knew and expounded on that beginner's knowledge.  Go Home Ec!  Regardless, all is well and he is off to school and then his meet.  I'm thrilled because this first one is in Algona home to none other than the Chocolate Season...darn, an excuse for coffee AND chocolate.  Ha ha!

So, I created this card the other day and I'm super happy to be sharing it with you.  I've noticed that most of my Christmas cards are taking on more of a winter theme...that's ok, right?  ;)

Again, I used some fun paper and a journaling card from my trusty Clique Kit.  I layered these items ten stamped snowflakes using the Rustic Christmas stamps.  The I stamped the adorable bear from the same set, colored him, and added a hat!  Next, I used the Rustic Christmas dies to cut out my shapes and add them to the card.  All layered up, the card turned out really cute!  Here's a closer look:

Thanks so much for checking out my card today!  I hope you are having a great week!!  See you tomorrow!  Here's what I used for this card:



  1. Ahh! Hope the wrestling meeting went well! I love that he has the confidence to do it! Your card is fabulous. Love the sentiment!

  2. Ooooo wrestling! Sounds fun to watch. And hopefully not painful?! Love this card!
