This is an example card for CareyÂ’s awesome sketch; she has three ovals on a curved background strip Â– lovely! I hope you try it out. Also, this is for RebeccaÂ’s Falliday Fest Challenge to use felt. The angel, tree and nutcracker were already assembled and decorated. They came from a pack that was purchased by my mother back in the 1950Â’s. I inherited her craft supplies when she passed away years ago. IÂ’ve been slowly using things over the years. These pieces were perfect for the sketch and the felt challenges. All I added was a star on top of the tree and a scrap of brown for the tree trunk. Terrific challenges! TFL

Your felt Christmas images have such a cheerful, old time feel; they remind me of the colorful felt stockings my mom made for us when we were kids : ). I love the fun designer paper you chose for this.

I love these old-school felt images. What a treasure to keep your memory of the connection with your mother alive. Thanks for sharing it with us - I just lost my mom and your story gives me hope I can still connect with her over the years even though she is not here any more. Sweet card, and great job with the sketch challenge.
