This Week's Challenge

This week's challenge is a warm and cozy kinda feeling.
I love everything about Christmas, of course the best part is we celebrate the birth of our Lord.  Then there is the decorating with all the beautiful colors and glowing candles. I love the snowy days and decorating outdoors.  I love buying all the gifts and having my darling hubby wrap them.  Then I decorate them...the part I love.  Then watching the little kids eyes as they open their gifts and the thrill the "big" kids get when they see what they have in their beautiful wrapped packages.  Can you tell...I totally love Christmas.
I made this card with all those thoughts in mind.

I found a piece of bark to use for under the deer's legs.  I didn't like him hanging in midair.  I added some distress ink for snow.
