It's hard to believe this is my last new card share of the year! Over the holidays we are running the challenge at Allsorts over 2 weeks so you have until January 6th to join us. It's Brenda's turn to host and she chose the theme of Clean and Simple. We have 3 prizes this time: from Highlight Crafts, AALL and Create and Ruth Hamilton Design. Hope you will join in with us!
This week I used an image from Ruth Hamilton Design, the beautiful Wild Roses, thought it was a perfect image to use for a Christmas themed "thank you" card by adding a pine branch.
I colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and fussy cut the image. The blossoms have been fussy cut a second time to add with foam tape.
The square wreath die is by Penny Black - Wildwood. The pine branch is part of the Beautified Baubles die set also by Penny Black. It's hard to see but I added some glitter to the flower centers. The white background was embossed using an old Stampin Up embossing folder. The sentiment is part of Itty Bitty Basics sentiment set from MFT.

While this is my last new card post of the year, I do have another post scheduled for December 30th, my Year in Review blog hop post where myself and a group of crafters will share our favorites of 2022. Hope you will stop by then. I will have a small prize to give away then too.
I am ready for things to slow down a bit now. Last week we got to enjoy the Nutcracker ballet where my daughter danced as the Sugarplum Fairy, one of Uncle Drosselmeyer's dolls and a snow fairy. It's been a busy several weeks of rehearsing leading up to it but it was such a joy to see her perform!
Now she is on a winter holiday break from both dance and school so I got her help with my second batch of Christmas cookies. Always nice to get help in the kitchen!!
Thank you all so much for visiting!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Hope you stay warm! We are in the midst of an arctic blast with temperatures of -25 degrees Celsius (maybe even lower) so it will be a chilly Christmas. At least the strong winds are supposed to calm down by tomorrow.
