Chapter 41: Christmas Greetings

                                                           LADY dear, if Fairies may
For a moment lay aside
Cunning tricks and elfish play,
'Tis at happy Christmas-tide.
We have heard the children say—
Gentle children. whom we love—
Long ago, on Christmas Day,
Came a message from above.

Still, as Christmas-tide comes round,
They remember it again—
Echo still the joyful sound
"Peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Yet the hearts must childlike be
Where such heavenly guests abide;
Unto children, in their glee,
All the year is Christmas-tide!

Thus, forgetting tricks and play
For a moment, Lady dear,
We would wish you, if we may,
Merry Christmas, glad New Year!
Christmas, 1867.

This holiday season has been so hectic. I still don't even have my tree up yet!
My son is none too happy about that either. It's on the list for tomorrow.

Here is my card for this week's Oh Alice! challenge. 

This week's sponsor is Pixie Dust Studio and they have
offered up 2 digital images for this week's random winner. 

I just couldn't resist the White Rabbit from the Pixie Dust Studio .
My friend, "Curse" LOVES the White Rabbit so I had her in mind when I made this card.
The challenge was to use only red and green and one other color.
I followed the challenge rather loosely and used a few more colors, but
the main scheme is red, green, and white.
I finally used those Liquid Pearls (I've had that stuff for over a year!) for the tassels and I like the way it looks.

I used a bunch of punches too!
You can never have too many snowflakes!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
