A Warm & Cozy Merry Christmas

I'm getting very close to the end of my Christmas card making.  I can tell it's time because my seasonal mojo starts getting a little ragged around the edges.  I actually went down to my stamp studio today to clear Christmas stamps and stuff.  I ended up making two cards.  I need to stop making cards and actually get my Christmas cards mailed, Christmas shopping done, plan the Christmas Day feast (Italian...yum), make the Christmas treats, wrap and make tags/gift card holders...oh em gee.  I actually did get my Christmas tree up today...and decorated(a week behind schedule) thanks to my husband giving me a much needed hand. It's crunch time.
This card is pretty straight forward.  I used mini distress pads to ink up the large wood background stamp...spritzed with water and got two "inkings"on watercolor paper. This is the second more muted inking.
