One of my favorite Christmas songs is The First Noel.

I really love how peaceful that song makes me feel.


Bugaboo Stamps has a new really cute Noel birds stamp that I just
couldn't wait to use.  It is just darling.
Bugaboo has a lot of really cute stamps. 
I hope that you will take time to check them out.
I have started on my next year's Christmas cards.
It is really never too early to start, and since it is still winter, I'm still in the mood to make Christmassy and Wintery projects.
I used the Bugaboo Noel birds stamp.
I added some DCWV red glitter paper.
I also added some white paper that I had run through the embossing machine with a swiss dots folder for a little bit of a snowy effect.
Lastly I added a touch of green.
l also used one of my new dies that I just got for Christmas.
a Tim Holtz die with the holly leaves and pinecone.
I thought that would add a nice touch.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Catch the Bug - Favorite Christmas Song
The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes
A Creative Romance - Sparkle at Christmas
Crafty Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
