Hark the Herald Angles Sing.  Glory to the newborn King!  This was one of Mom's favorite Christmas carols.  She had many favorites but said that she always loved this one when she was young -- "because it was peppy!"

Normally, I don't post on Sunday's, but because it is a very special day where we celebrate the Newborn King and all that He did to change the world, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to wish you and all those you love a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

This week I will be sharing cards made with another sneak peek suite from the Spring Mini Catalog called Delicate Desert.  Now, this certainly isn't a Christmas themed stamp set, but I thought I would see if I could use it to make a Christmas Card.

What do you think?  Does this work for Christmas?  It is Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive (i.e. Red & Green), so if nothing else, at least the colors are traditional Christmas colors.

I'm not sure exactly what this desert flower is, but I'm going to call it a Christmas Rose.  They are beautiful DistINKtive stamps, so the DistINKtive shading makes beautiful quick & easy stamped flowers.

The Desert Details Bundle also includes some great border and frame dies as well as a couple of border stamps that you see on the lower part of this card.

Since I now have one Christmas Card that I can put into my 2023 Christmas Card stash, I can officially say that I have started my 2023 Christmas Cards!  Eleven months from now, I just hope that I can remember where I "stashed" it!

I kept the inside of the card clean and simple with only a Cherry Cobbler stamped sentiment and an Old Olive mat.

A tutorial is available for today's card by downloading a copy using this link.
