Christmas cheer, Santa is near

I have a four-year old nephew who is into the NINJA turtles so I thought this would be the perfect card to send him with this adorable image from Imagine That!  The sentiment is from TLC.

Merry Christmas Neigh-bor

Kris at Imagine That! came out with some wonderful Christmas and winter holiday images.  One being this wonderful horse image.  I grew up in the country with my Father being a farmer, and I always wanted a horse, but my Dad always said "No".  For some reason, I am always drawn to horses, maybe I had them in a previous life.  For this card I used the sentiment on the inside of the card.  I distressed the paper to give it a more rough and western look.

all is calm

TLC had this wonderful angel as one of the clubs a couple of years ago and also this great sentiment.  I went with a mono blue card being a non-traditional color, but matching the angel.  There is just something calming about angels at this time of year so that is why I chose that sentiment.
