Tis the season for cards and snow

While there are tons of things I love about the Holiday season, creating cards is at the top. This card combines four things that I think are just plain yummy!
One is this amazing piece of patterned paper by BoBunny. It would actually fit a few different themes but it is part of a Christmas collection.
Two other yummy details would be the banner and sentiment stamps by Pink Persimmon and these wonderful self adhesive pearls by Queen & Co.

The fourth is this amazing Martha Stewart border punch and how it looks as the finish to my card. I gave it a rub with a brown Fluid chalk stamp pad to add to the vintage look.
And, I have pictures to share!
For this first photo you have to understand that WE DO NOT get snow! The hills in the distance might get a dusting about once a winter. This is the scene from about one mile from our house with a strawberry field in the foreground. They replant strawberries all around us in the fall so they are ready to pick come March or so.
And, I wanted to share a newer photo of our kitty cat. She is so growing up and she is just so pretty.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

That card is GORGEOUS. I love the border stamp and the added detail of the pearls. Just LOVELY.

Great blog banner too and I saw your Disneyland pics! We were there last year when it was all dressed up for Christmas and we just LOVED it. Glad you got to go on your birthday!
