A Christmas card… of course

Hi there.. my new Magnolia Christmas stamps arrive slowly in my mail box.. whoohooo… bummer I was not able to get my hands onto that wonderful door entry, the stamps were all gone online by the time I was ready to order. Oh well.. it has to wait … this one is made with Edwin on Christmas Eve. As always, I try to keep my cards with boy images “flower less” and try to embellish with with other things I have on hand. Sometimes not that easy. All though this card is not frilly and girly.. I must say I like how it turned out, it will be easy to mail.
