Merry Christmas!

Christmas is the Season 
The Reason...
ATC_Fun Swap 3 for 3...

With all the hustle and bustle, we forget the true meaning of CHRISTmas. Although it is not His real birth date, it is the day given to celebrate it with good tidings. It reminds us to celebrate love. Love entwined with many colors, gold and bling as gifts that were given to Baby Jesus by the Three Kings. 

Santa kneeling before the Christ Child is one of my favorite images for Christmas. May all your celebrations during this Christmas season be filled with joy, laughter and love...

Let It Snow...noooo...Not really!

ATC - 'Let It SNOW'

Just an Artist Trading Card for a Yahoo Group Swap: ATC_Fun. It is a 3 for 3 card trade. Had lots of fun with this one. I started on recycled cardboard. Background is a course acrylic medium with a little bit of blue acrylic(forgot which one-Cobalt?) ..(I don't want any real snow!)
After it dried, I worked red, blue and pink into the corners. I fussy-cut five snowflakes, courtesy of Kelly Donovan of: ...The snowflakes were decorated with gel pens.

The snowflake in the top right hand corner is a punch cut out from wallpaper with glitter glue.
