Merry Monday Challenge!

The gals over at the Merry Monday Challenge have bird theme going on this week and I found a few minutes to get a quick Christmas card done to play along!
I am pretty happy with how the card turned out and it was quick card to boot! Funny how you can get a card whipped up quickly when you are under a tight deadline!
I stamped an image from the Penny Black stamp set "Cold nose warm heart" then colored it with my Prisma pencil crayons. I added some Be Creative tape over top of the image and added some Warm Highlight Glitter Ritz glitter. I cut an arrow from the Tim Holtz movers and shapers mini jalopy and arrow set and hand wrote "north pole" I added a Memory Box die called Frosty Border. The embossing folder is by Sizzix/Hero Arts and the Holiday Cheer sentiment is also by Penny Black (wood mounted).
Well that brings me to 2 Christmas cards made for 2013. I think that is an all time record for me so early in the year! I am teaching 3 classes next week so I am guessing there will be not much time for playing this week but you never know. I do have a few ideas floating around in my head. :)
Thanks everyone for stopping by!
