Reindeer Games

Hey everyone...
I finally mailed out the last of my Christmas cards today! I am really behind here!
Yesterday we had our family Christmas with nieces and nephews and cousins from my husbands side of the family. We were only 35 this year. My inlaws couldn't make it this year. They live in Florida and my father in law was in the hospital. He's home now, but they won't be making it up to the New York area this year. They haven't missed a Christmas with us ever!...not that I can remember anyway. We missed them yesterday!
I still have a few cards to make. I save the ones that I am making for my husband and my children last. Not a good idea this year!
This is a card that I finally made for my husband. I had an idea in my head using this image and I think it worked. I had to walk away from it for a day. I wanted to add more embellishments and it just wasn't working. When I went back to it today I thought that it looked fine the way it was so I put it all together.
The image is from Tim Holtz ( is it Tim or Jim? I can't tell from his signature! lol)
I used My Minds Eye Signature Christmas paper and matching Bazzill signature christmas card stock.
The image was heat embossed. The heidi swapp ghost snowflakes were embossed with pearl ex. I added some May Arts sheer polka dot ribbon, attached the snowflakes and the prima flower from the Belle Fluer Christmas collection to the ribbon with a pop up.
I hope you all are ready for your holiday and are keeping warm. We are in a deep freeze....with lots of snow and ice.
If I don't get a chance to post again I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy Chanukah!
We leave on the 28th for our ski trip to Smugglers Notch for the week. I can't wait to play in the snow!
All my love,
