the snowy scene is from a vintage christmas "ideals" magazine. i love that every issue i've ever seen has at least a few pages that are just shades of blue, a few that are just green or red or sepia; it's like a colorful version of greyscale! i've used a blue one here, as you can see. the lamp post was part of the same scene but was on the other side of a bit of a poem or text of some kind that i didn't want to include, so i fussy cut it, intending to fit it within my "tall card" shape. but i hated to cover too much of the house up, so i wound up letting it dangle off the edge, lol. it's a bit of an oddly-shaped, oversized card, that will need to go in with a package instead of being mailed in an envelope, me thinks! ;)
this week's theme on the simon says stamp monday challenge blog is home sweet home. i'm hoping that "home for christmas" counts??!
stephanie has made a rather lovely card that can be mailed quite sensibly. you really should hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see it, darlings!
