Christmas Card Using CTMH Beary Christmas Paper, Stamps, Die with CCK Butterflies and Berries

Hello friends.  How is everyone?  I hope you are staying warm.  I have heard it is cold over most of US.  I don't keep up with overseas weather.  It has been cool at night; but warmer during the day in Southern CA.  We had a few showers last week; but they didn't amount to much.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post.  Our topic this week is ATG; which is my favorite.  I like to create whatever I feel in the mood to create.  LOL!  I think this is my first Christmas card this year.  I chose to use the gorgeous new Ching-Chou Kuik "Butterflies and Berries".  I thought it would be a good one to use for Christmas with the Berries; even though there are butterflies.  I am sure we have both at Christmas in CA.  LOL!  It took me all week to finish this card.  I have been having a tough month with my health.

(You can also purchase stamp set alone - D1743)
