Wishing You the Joy, Hope, and Wonder

I wanted to participate in a few challenges, so I sat down and put this card together this morning.  I used Cherie's sketch for the 14th at Sassy Lil' Sketches:

This card also works for Christmas Card Challenges (trees) and for Keep it Simple (swirls). 

I fussy cut the trees from Bo Bunny's Tis the Season.  There are swirls built in on the trees and paper - isn't that cool?!  Sometimes we can look right to our paper for the best treasures!  I've used a Penny Black sentiment to complete the card.

This one is going right into my box for Operation Write Home.  If you feel like making some extra Christmas cards, they are due to OWH by October 30th.  Also, have you been to the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog?  There is always SO MUCH going on over there.  Tutorials, digi images, and loads of fun challenges.  Head on over there when you have a minute - you'll be glad you did!

There are several blogs having Christmas card challenges, so I will add this card to those challenges, too!

Glitterbabe's Challenge - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Christmas Colors
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Christmas for OWH
