Yay, I was able to do a teaparty this week! Had to do it over two mornings at 4:00 AM, but I didn't want to miss sending a card to Jeannie's Mom. I remember how special my Mom and my MIL felt when they received teaparty cards a few years ago (loved, surprized and special).
I got 10 of the 12 things/days/items on the list. I missed gold and holly, but we can just say they are in Santa's bag.
I bought those tree dies last year with the intention of making a bunch of cards that popped in my head when I saw them. None of those ideas popped back out once I bought the set or maybe they popped out and I can't find them. This challenge made a new one come to mind so now they have been fully used. Yay!
Santa and the puppy are from an inside scene, but they came out today. The puppy thinks Santa has doggie toys and treats in the bag - all the animals in our family know that there are always treats! The trees are decorated outside because hubby wants the Grandsons to be thrilled (never worked when I asked - those Grandsons give him magical energy - lol).
The card is off to Jacqueline with love.

OOH! Nancy! So glad you could come to the tea party this week with this beautiful card which is now planted firmly in my faves. What a gorgeous snowy scene. I'm happy that you were able to use those tree dies in such a fabulous way. That Santa and doggie are just adorable!

Such an adorable scene, Nancy. I love all that snow; the texture is wonderful. I'm amazed at the trees....so much dimension and you've added bulbs/ornaments to them; how sweet is that! Then the doggie, well, he just melts my heart reminding me of a little child with the excitement shown. Beautifully created~

Nancy, my mom will squeal with joy to see Santa trying to keep a secret! You see, Mom is FAMOUS for letting the cat, or in this case, presents out of the bag, whether it be Christmas, birthdays, or any major event, she enjoys Sharing and experiencing excitement and as you mentioned, magical energy with family and friends... and rightfully so!! :)
I love this sweet scene and the snowy texture is something’s I’ve been wanting to try and you’ve inspired! I too have the tree dies and started to use for my screen card, but size was not quite right for it, so will use for another card.
Thanks so much for sharing your time with creating this special beauty for my Mom!
