Chimneys and Christmas!

Chimneys and christmas goes like a pair . If not , atleast Santa and chimneys do ! We often have this question “how does Santa get down the chimney?” My guess is none of us have a clue to this or to answer this to a kid! There’s something about chimneys as a backdrop for any christmas theme – be it hanging stocking, gathering around a fireplace or Santa bringing the gifts ! It makes quite a fancy background for a christmas card too!

Its been crazy few days with everyone rushing to do last minute shopping for gifts .This post is perfect for the days prior to Christmas.

For this post, I made a card using chimney as the theme. Instead of Santa, we have the stamping bella uptown girl Charlie sitting by the chimney with the gift and a martini in her hand.

Christmas tree on the way!

Hi

With Christmas nearing, many would have set up a tree in their living room and started decorating it with lights and ornaments. May be some gifts would already be there underneath it. For today, its about a bringing a christmas tree home.

There’s something nice about the fresh cut christmas trees, the smell and the feel of it. Here is Ramona pulling a tree on her slide over the snow with her penguin hanging onto the tree. Its a real cute stamp which brings out the merry feeling of christmas. Its from Stamping bella company.
