Christmas Ornament

I don't know about you, but I love to decorate for the holidays.  I usually put up 4-5 large trees. Last year I shocked everyone and didn't put up any of my Christmas trees. It was a very busy time of year with our Oldest son graduating from college two weeks before Christmas and our youngest son turned 21 the day before Christmas.  Needless to say I was focused on other parties and events.  I did decorate the house, just not the trees. 
 Each of my trees is decorated with a different theme.  This year I have decided to put up only one tree and make new ornaments for the tree.  I am hoping I get them done in time.  The theme for this tree will be The Nativity.  Each ornament I make will have some element from the nativity story.  This is the first ornament I have made so far.  I decided my color scheme would be white, tan, gold, blue and rose.  I found some Christmas balls at Hobby Lobby in those colors to add to my tree.
This is also my DT project for Simply Magnolia.  Our theme for this month is CAS or FULLY LOADED.  Somehow I think my card has a CAS look even though I intended it to be Fully loaded. I can't wait to see what you make for this challenge.

Christmas Card

Are you ready for the holidays?  I am getting excited since my Christmas cards are almost done.
I created this card for Addicted to Stamps. Our theme for this challenge is to use two different stamps.  I used two stamps from Magnolia stamps to create this card.  I wanted it to look like Edwin was out cutting down his own tree so I added an additional tree in background and snow with white embossing enamel and also some snow tex to the trees.
I can't wait to see what you create for the challenge.

Card Details:
Stamps: Magnolia Stamps
Reindeer die: Cottage Cutz
Holly die: Magnolia Doohickey die
Tag: Sizzix
Heart: magnolia Doohickey die
White embossing enamel
Snow tex on the tree

The deadline to mail Christmas cards is fast approaching.  Are you ready?  I am just about finished with my cards.  Of course, there are always a few people I decide to add to my list each year so I may not be as close to done as I hope.
This is November 1st so that means a new challenge at Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas Extra challenge. The theme is always anything goes and we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.
