Here is my card for the F4A today; Pick a movie.
Since I am totally in Christmas mode, I am choosing my fav Christmas movie; It's A Wonderful Life.
For the few that have never seen the movie, George feels that life is hopeless until an angel shows him what life would have been without him in it. Family, friends and home are what it's all about and being with them is the best for Christmas.
For my card, I painted Brushos onto my stamp....gives it a more hand-painted look I find. I cut it out and pop dotted it over an embossed framed bkg.
thanks for looking,

Lovely Christmas card, Karen. I like how you took the scene from the "postcard" bg and used it alone.(I'm assuming it is the Stampendous stamp postcard stamp) Great to be your neighbor today!! Have a wonderful week-end, mf

Amen to all the true gifts of Christmas and how they make life wonderful. Your brusho image is serene and peaceful; may your Christmas holidays be also, Karen, and may that just spill over into the year ahead.

Oh, Karen, this is a beauty! I don't think I've ever seen a card you've made with this stamp that I haven't loved! And I love that movie too and agree with you that George surely needed a reminder of the precious gift of his family, friends, and community! So glad we have SCS and that I count you as a dear friend! Hugs, gf!!

Wow, what a beautiful card. I was trying to think of what movie you may have picked just by looking at the picture and was blank. You picked a great movie and at the perfect time of the year. Thank you for playing the challenge.
