A Christmas Scene With Heart

The new Always Grateful stamp set from Close to My Heart is a Thanksgiving stamp, but when I first saw it I thought of the fir tree as a Christmas tree with silver along with the new Frosted paper.  As I was working on my last card I thought what if there was a Christmas tree in the window as I looked out at the snow.  Now was my chance to turn a Thanksgiving stamp into a Christmas stamp.  Of course that meant I had to do some fussy cutting...  Gray glitter paper and silver glitter glitz provide sparkle to a peaceful scene.  Once again I used this Atlantic Hearts Sketch:

Thank you for stopping by!  Now please go check out the creations at Atlantic Hearts and Heart 2 Heart.  Until next time, Hansi
