I hope, you have had peaceful and wonderful Christmas celebrations, wherever you are.
We did enjoy Christmas a lot, we celebrated at our place.
In Germany we celebrate on Christmas eve. My family was due to arrive at about 3 pm, so we could attend church at 4 pm. But since my girls' Dad needed to leave rather early, so see his other family, we agreed that he should come over an hour early, to he could spend a little more time with the girls.
Our tradition is to set up and decorate the tree on the morning of the 24th (yes, that late) together. So, running late with preparations, as usual, I decided that he could do that with the girls, while I was finishing the last tasks in the kitchen and around the house.
Well, nice in theory, in actuality, he ran half an hour late, by which time the tree had already fallen over once, because I was maybe a bit overenthusiastic when I bought it. Meaning I got it fresh from a local farmer and in the large barn without any other trees to compare it with, it just didn't look as huge as it is. It almost reaches the ceiling and is a bit big for our tree stand.
Now, to the card. This one is an idea I have seen on the Internet in many variations, with the single snowflake and a simple sentiment strip. I created a watercolour gradient back ground and adhered the silver embossed snowflake on top, then I added the sentiment with foam tape.
