Time For Christmas Cards

For Operation Write Home, that is.  Otherwise, I would be waiting until December ! ~  You know me, mojo comes under pressure.
I did have fun making this card.  I used the MFT sketch for the week
The first panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug floder.  The Christmas BG paper is from the Echo Park "Winter Park" 6 x 6 pad.  Plaid is a scrap.
Tree image and the sentiment are Verve.
I stamped the tree 4 times and then cut out each layer.  Sakura Clear Star is used to line the embossed line around the sentiment to give a little interest.
I guess it's not so bad making Christmas cards this early.  So I better get busy and make more!
