Another New Toy

Good morning everyone!! OMG...I have been so busy this week....besides working, babysitting my 2 and 4 year old grandsons, wrapping presents, and sending out Christmas cards, I haven't been doing much...LOL!! Throw in a couple of Christmas programs and my Mom's doctors appointment and my week is complete!! Three of our grandkiddos will spend next week with us so I had to wrap all the presents that were taking up space in one of the guest bedrooms. Hopefully, we will do some Christmas baking and finish up my shopping next week along with some late night movie dates and a marathon Monoply game!! Anyway....I did spend some time in the craft room yesterday. I still have a few more Christmas cards to send out and I just had to play with another new toy (Merry Christmas to me...Whoohoo!!) I used the Deer Trio die from Memory Box ( I bought it at Ellen Hutson's store) and my new favorite Christmas dp from Little Yellow Bicycle. The snow in the background is a torn piece of white cardstock and the punched snowflakes, twine, and sentiment from Our Craft Lounge finish it off.
Stamps: Jolly Ornaments set from Our Craft Lounge
Paper: White, Chocolate Chip, Little Yellow Bicycle dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Twine, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punches, Deer Trio die from Memory Box

I made this for a few challenges:
1. Fairy Fun Fridays - Holly Jolly Christmas - no red or green
2. Raise the Bar - Christmas
3. Stampin for the Weekend - Christmas
4. Card Makin Mamas - Christmas

Thanks for stopping by on this chilly Saturday morning...have a great weekend!!!!!
