'Cuz we need a little Christmas...

...and by little, I mean little people & little decorations! This is a mixed media project that also incorporates a couple of cute MixedUP Merchandise printables from the Retro Christmas page.

So without further ado.... 

This copper shadowbox house is awesome! I found it at Consumer Crafts & it comes in different sizes. It's made of wood with leather around the edges & cut out windows - perfect for peeking! 

I love the angel and star printable on the roof. I embossed the wings & star for some shine. 

My other little printable is sitting pretty in a bottle cap with a tree & piece of candy. And I made a card with a Winter Wishes sentiment out of the postcard-type printable.

Of course, Tim Holtz Christmas paper dolls are appropriate & whimsical. Ice shavings are in the roof top and a string of lights frames the scene. 

I'm also entering this in the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog & Altered Eclectics.  Wish me luck!
