Season's greeting - The Merry Christmas Challenge #34

Wednesday September 13, 2017
Well Well look what I did... I joined another design team (in fact I joined 4 more.. all ran by Janis Lewis :)
This is a weekly Christmas card challenge so I will have my fair share of Christmas/Holiday cards.
I am on the Holly and Ivy team.. So I will post every other week BUT the challenge is weekly..
The theme is always the same
I have a dresser drawer in my craft room closet that is filled with Christmas/Holiday stamps..  Not Halloween/Valentine.... holidays. those are in separate large boxes. LOL..
This is an acrylic I won some time back and the stamp is by MTF stamps.. I have thought I would make my first card with this because I wanted to paint it with my new Mission water color paints.  I stamped and embossed the image on water color paper. I had fun figuring out how to color but I think I need to water down the paints more. They seem to strong. It's a learning process.  I will figure it out sooner or later. I also painted the background but figured it needed a little more depth so I used Ranger inks and went around the outside. I added some Nuvo Drops and the Simon Says sentiment.
I sure hope you play along. The theme is
