Welcome Santa!


I always hang one of my Christmas wreaths on my front door, along with several others in the windows. This year may pose a bit of a problem since we have so MANY front windows...may just stick to the downstairs windows! LOL!

But this sketch from the Skipping Stones Challenge this week inspired me.  As soon as I saw it, I immediately saw a window and house siding...hmmm...I'm more a home decorator than a card maker perhaps.

So, here's my take on that sketch.  Pretty much resembles my windows...I love hanging my extra ornaments from the top and a big red ribbon holds the wreath.  Multiply that by three windows plus the front door and it makes a nice holiday statement!


The adorable wreath is part of the Skipping Stones "Everyday Blessings" set, which I embossed in deep green and then colored in with Copics.
I used an older stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms, ""Weathered Wood Backgrounder" for the house siding. I love the way the rubber is cut so deeply that the heat embossing brings out all of the detail!

Even though it's a simple card,
I think it's quickly become one of my favorites this year...
