To all of you from all of us

Today I have the cutest stamp to show you.  It is perfect for creating a card that is for an entire family rather than an individual person.  Though this stamp set is named Christmas Wishes, this versatile stamp can be used for absolutely any occasion.

I colored my woodland scene using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, blending the slightly darker colors into my lighter colors.  To create a snowy effect, but without overdoing the glitter, I added a small line of Stickles under the green trees in the background, around the trunk of the main tree, and small dots all around where the snow is falling.  Here is a bit of a close up so you can see it better.

Once the Stickles dried, I matted my stamp several times with card stock and pattern paper, added a bit of ribbon, a sticker, and a rhinestone in two of the corners.  I then glued down the entire piece to a folded 6x12 piece of card stock.

I am on fire making Christmas cards this month.  At this rate I should be done by Halloween!   That would be an all time first for me.  I tend to be a last minute person when it comes to holiday cards.  Have you started on your holiday cards?

I am entering my card in the following challenges;

Lollipop Crafts - Anything goes
Crazy challenge - anything goes
Simon says stamp and show - anything goes

Thanks for looking :)
