MelJen's Christmas

I was beginning to wonder if I'd actually get a card done this week.  My son got himself a 10 point buck over the weekend and that called for mamma's butchering skills.  I had to hurry up and do it cause the weather is unusually warm at the moment.  Some people don't agree with hunting, I know.  Our family lives off it so it's very important to us. We don't hunt just for fun.  We never kill anything that we won't eat and we abide by all the rules and regulations.  I don't agree with people that don't follow those rules.  Last year when we ran out of venison everyone got sick.  Reminded me that we don't know what's put in our food from stores.  Ewwww  We're blessed to be able to raise and grow most of our own food.  And I put up lots of stuff during canning season.  With the cost of groceries I just don't see how families get by anymore. 

I wanted to send some warm hugs up  north to all my family, friends and blogging buddies that are experiencing that cold front.  Stay warm and stay safe. 

Well, onto my card for tonight.  It was a freebie from MelJen's and I opted to do it because it was quick and easy and would get me back in the mood again.  Plus I think it turned out really nicely with the sketch from Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle.  I did a little embossing with the sntiment and snowflake design on the tag.  The papers were a gift so I'm not sure who they're made by, but they are gorgeous.  The ribbon is a scrap!

  1. What a beautiful and stylish card
    hugs linda

  2. This is one pretty card Jen! Love it:)
    I agree with you about the hunting. It needs to be done correct. I dont like hunting but I understand that it's something who need to be done. And as long as it's done with respect and knowledge it's kind of okay. Hunting just for fun is horrible.
    My english is kind of weird but I hope you understand:)
    Have a nice day!
    Hugs, Heidi:)

  3. What an elegant card! I love it! And I always say a girl has to do what a girl has to do. You shouldn't have to justify yourself! As long as you know what you are doing is ok/good! Congrats to you son, he must have been soo proud.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
