  2. I think I love seeing Christmas cards now better than the real season - it's so refreshing! Love the striped background and the pretty ribbon you used, Gail! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  3. Like the TH Joy card. Like how you colored the trees. I paper pieced mine which was not easy and I like your way better. Like the striped paper background. What I like most is the way you cut the white cardstock for the layers of snow for wonderful Winter scene.
