Christmas card for the week.........

Here is my Christmas card for the week :)

jingle belles: #17 recycle.....reuse...and jingle...........

Kathe is our guest star and she has set the prompt for us to "celebrate earth day" on our card. 
**I have used 5 old store bought Christmas cards for the angle and a soda can for the snowflakes punched out with a MS punch. I followed Lauren's instructions HERE and I didn't even get a cut!!  Hubby was shocked!! lol

CHNC: # 17 A touch of Easter for Christmas

Hazel want's us to us yellow(???) and an oval on our Christmas card. 
** At first I was going to say the yellow hair on the angel counted! lol
But I have used a light yellow paper under the snowflakes and the sentiment is stamped on yellow and punched with an oval :)

Do More With Less: Get dimensional with Donna Mundinger
  
Donna creates the most awesome dimensional cards. I love what she does with her cricut and I almost fired mine up..........almost!! lol 
**the angel is layered using 5 of the same images from old Christmas cards.



I started out following the new sketch on Card Patterns.


Hubby and I had a perfect two day get away at the coast, well it was perfect except for the bee that decided to hitch a ride in my helmet on the way home! Kicked him out FAST!! lol
While we were at the beach we ran into 
some that wanted to say "HI" to you Lauren. :)


**hope these pics hold you over until 
you can get back out to California girl :)
