Tim Holtz Noel Card

 Greetings my friends.  Christmas is fast approaching and the festivities are in full swing here.  All I have left to do is cook.  My dear husband helped me shop and wrap the presents......so we're done!!!!  It was his birthday this weekend too.  So I cooked and threw a little party for him.  We had a great time. 
Remember this little number I posted not to long ago.  Well this is the card that I made to match it.  I photographed that spool in natural light.   I love that picture so much more than my card.  I photographed the card in a light box.   Anyway,  you get the idea,  right?  I just didn't want to wait any longer to give this a way.
 Don't you just love the little deer in the poinsettia.  I think he looks very sweet there!  Love the lacy look of the pretty snowflakes.  And just in case you are wondering,  I have been walking around with inky finger for some time now.  My finger were red today and right now they are green.....lol

 You can't see it to well, but there is another reindeer under the "25" on this easel card.   Under that is actually a pocket and I put a special note inside there.


 The soft color of the blue and green together are gorgeous.  I just love the soft cool blue.  I gave this to my co-worker this morning.  He brought it right to his wife at lunch.  The report back was that she was WOWED.....lol  Good, that was what I wanted to achieve.  I did it!!!  Christmas is the time of giving and I am overjoyed that I was able to share the gift of a beautiful hand made present.

Thank you so much for dropping by today to view my project.  My wish for you this season is to WOW as many people as possible at Christmas.   Remember those special people in your life that bring you joy.  Give plenty of "WOW's" to fill your heart!!!

I can certainly see why your co-worker's wife was saying, "WOW", when she received this beauty. Those have to be the most gorgeous poinsettias I've seen and you've used so many wonderful embellies, die cuts, etc. and have it sparkling so pretty. LOVE it!!!

I seriously don't think you have it in you to make anything that is less than "WOW" grade! I'm convinced you could take pages from the phone book, throw on some glitter, add some die cuts & come up with something spectacular. lol I bet you absolutely made her day! And doesn't that make you feel wonderful?

Merry Christmas, Carol! thank you for sharing your Christmas pretties this year. I've so enjoyed each project. The colors in this card are especially striking. One thing you remind me to do is use those gorgeous MS punches. There is nothing quite like them, even mixed with other companies' dies - Carol, all the best this season, and many happy wishes for you and yours. hugs, de

Aw, I am so glad your coworker's wife loved this. How could she not?? It's amazing. Love the blue poinsettias with the white reindeer among them. Gorgeous.

I am glad *your* package arrived from me! Hope it was in one piece. You never know with the mail!

Wonderful and very magical stuff my friend. Hugz!
