...to the World, and to you, my friends, this Christmas season. I meant to schedule this for Christmas, but things got a little busy. ;)

I must've been listening to the Arabian Coffee dance from the Nutcracker when I was making this, because the brown paper I used features coffee information. ;) Oh, and I don't think you can tell, but I stamped some snowflakes behind the pearl ornaments with Versamark - very subtle, but one of those little touches I have to have.

Love painting these trees with watercolor pencils...

Anyways, a very Mary Christ's Mass to you, my sweet friends! Remember, there are twelve days of Christmas, so be sure to enjoy them all! :)
