Christmas anyone ...

Normally I wouldn't be creating a Christmas Card in February.  However, Sassy Studio Design Dare to be Sassy Thursday #113 Challenge is to create a Christmas/Holiday Card using traditional colors.  Now the only reason I could honestly be in the right frame of mind to create this type of card is that we had the pleasure of having 7-1/2 inches of  snow last Friday.  I actually took a picture of it falling, and will share it later in this post.
After coloring "Meet Me under the Mistletoe" with my Copic Markers I put it on the side not sure how I would put the card together.  Then I received the reminder on Saturday about Freshly Made Sketches current Challenge #23, and knew exactly how I would proceed.

This is what I woke up to Friday morning.
This is a picture of my backyard with the snow falling.

Until next time ... Take Care!
