Christmas Day for Paper Players #455

Hi everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's theme week:

This challenge was right up my alley!  I've spent the last two weeks making cards for my final 2019 batch to be sent off to SendaSmile4Kids.  The hardest part was choosing which card to showcase for the challenge:-)  In the end, I went with a Christmas card.

Christmas Day (1 of 1)

The snowman and the sentiment are from an Echo Park scrapbooking kit that I repurposed to make Christmas cards for the kids.  I mounted both of the elements on fun foam and put them onto a Neenah Solar white card base.  Quick, and oh so easy!

I hope you will play along with us this week.  As usual, the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:

On a personal note:

NO!!! I saw the first falling leaves and trees turning this weekend.  I am SO not ready for summer to end.  It only got started two months ago!  Our southern visitors have left and have begun their migration back.  The hummer is the only one we have seen in the last couple of days.  I really do miss the Orioles waking us up at 5.30 in the morning waiting for their food and the beautiful call of the Grosbeak.  Even the cat bird has stopped mewing and presumably gone with the rest of them.  However, we still get to admire the bright yellow of the Goldfinch and the bright red of the Cardinal, so there is still a lot of activity at the feeders.

I'll be back later in the week with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
