Yesterday I mentioned that there are always a few stamp sets in a new catalog that catch my eye and are must haves for me.  Today I am using another one of those stamp sets.  This one is called Christmas Magic.  I even love the name!

Here's a magnified view of the sign with the mini pinecone.  Aren't those pinecones adorable?  I can't wait to use more of those!

I am having a lot of fun creating a few Christmas cards in order to provide you with some Sneak peeks from the 2016-2017 Holiday Catalog.  This stamp set has an adorable snowman that I am also anxious to use.

Because my image is quite busy, I chose a simple design in order to make the art piece the center of the show.  But, I do want to create a card with just the sign post.
