Christmas Peace

Hope everyone enjoyed a great Thanksgiving Day with family and friends!
The temperature in my area plunged from 80 degrees yesterday to 40 this morning.  Cold and raining..Brrr...
Thought I would share a Christmas card that was made earlier in the year.

This card was made using a sketch from RAQ'S Challenge 07/21-07/27. Some of you may have seen it on the Cricut Messageboard. The bluebird and sentiment are cut from Cricut Cartridge Winter Woodland. Trees are cut from Christmas Noel. I hand cut the three layers of snow and used the Cuttlebug embossing folders Snowflakes, Swiss Dots, and Divine Swirls.

Thanks for visiting today!
