Christmas Fun

Oh my! This is definitely not CAS! This card took me over an hour to make! DH came into the room just as I was finishing editing my photo. He's used to me looking at cards and he said, "Wow! That card is wonderful!" I didn't realize what he was thinking. I said, "It's much better in real life." And I picked it up to show him. He said, "You made that card?!? Wow, honey! That's great!" He's always supportive, but it still made me feel good. :)

SCS Inspiration Challenge: Etsy store "aimoobaroo" - Famous for their fabric buttons Here's my inspiration. I started with the idea of circles and dp mixed with images, but some how it came to this! Later on, I found these buttons which go with my images a little better.

I used the popcorn images because I could imagine the garland on the tree as strings of popcorn.
