Just Getting Started!!!

I've had a crazy couple of weeks lately...work wise and on the home front!

While all of you have been busy working on your growing STACKS of Christmas cards...sadly I have been neglecting mine!!!!

Well I finally finished my first and believe it or not I actually started this one last year and just now got around to finishing it!!!  I've actually been working on a Christmas explosion box but am stuck waiting on a crucial part...so...stalled for now!!

Okay so it's not a masterpiece but hey it's done!!!

I went with a peek a boo style card that I first saw on Norma Lee's blog...
I used Ice Tilda from the Christmas Dreams collection... 
a closer look...
sentiment from Whimsy stamps...I'll add a personalized sentiment when I decide who to give it to...
Well hopefully this will motivate me to get a move on...I've got all these WONDERFUL Christmas stamps just waiting to be set free!!!
Materials Used:
