Little cottage in the woods

The other night I decided it was high time I got started on some Christmas cards, last year I was well on the way at this time.  I love this Crafty Individuals stamp which needs very little colouring but lots of glitter, added it to a Sizzix snow embossing folder, cut a couple of hills and edged everything with blue ink and glitter. The saying is from some freebie stamps last year, finished off with Tim Holtz Christmas trees edged with green.  After I had made one I decided I would make six of them but ended up with seven as I stamped and cut out out six of everything forgetting I had already made one, sometimes I wonder .......?  I'd like to enter this into these challenges
