May Rudolph Days - Christmas Magic


Hi, Friends.....

I got out a stray set of Graphic 45 stickers from the older Nutcracker Sweet collection that was kindly sent to me years ago by Gloria Stengel.  (Thanks, Gloria!!)  All I have from that collection are the stickers, but I knew I had papers and trim I could use.  I am squeaking this in as my entry into the May Rudolph Days over at ScrappyMo's!  

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet stickers
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set (retired)
Scraps of patterned paper and solid cardstock for mats and panels
Ribbon and ric-rak trim from stash
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain

Thank you for stopping by today.  It is a very chilly, gray, and rainy Memorial Day here in Idaho.  I don't think it hit 50F today and we can hardly step foot in our gardens yet because it has been so cold and wet!  As usual, though, the weather will change to hot and dry all of a sudden and our chilly wet spring will be but a fading memory.  Hope all of you are doing well.


Thank you for the honor of entering this card in the following challenges:
