The Spirit of Christmas alive and well! My holiday wishes for all of you, that have taken the time to visit, comment and enter over at Emerald Creek Dares for our challenges or taken the time to visit my little corner of the blogging world is very simple.....Believe!! Believe in the true spirit of this holiday season, believe that wonderful and positive things are coming in the new year, believe that the small things you do for someone else truly matter, believe that you are important and believe in yourself.

Again....I used the gorgeous Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder exclusively from Emerald Creek. I used it on my flowers, on a pinecone charm, snowflake charms and on the background behind my large pinecones! Yes I love it!

On my tiny pinecone charms I embossed two with Burnt Copper Leaves and one with Soft Fallen Snow

On the stamped image I used Soft Fallen Snow and Burnt Copper Leaves embossing powder
I used some Prima flowers I had stashed away, sprayed them with Barn Door Distress Spray, then dipped them in Soft Fallen Snow.
My finished card!
From my home to yours, where ever you are and however you celebrate, Merry Christmas and always....Believe!!
