Merry Christmas From Arizona To Iraq

Hi, Just sharing a new card that I mailed to my nephew in Iraq for Christmas with a huge box of goodies from home. I know he will enjoy it and I know it will be hard to be away from the family though the holiday too! Big Hugs!!!  
Since I live in AZ thought I would send this card stamped with a christmas cactus made by Great Impressions. The sentiment and stitched hillside are from Lawn Fawn. 

I kept it pretty basic since it is going to a guy...no flowers or bling. I distressed the edges and the ovals are from Spellbinders. I colored the image with copic markers and added some Liquid Applique for a bit of snow. 

A bit of embossing in the background for snow.

Package #1 I even put a small Christmas Tree in there.... Lots of Yummy goodies 

Package #2...I thought I would be able to fit it all in one box....not....some extras

Thanks for stopping by! 
Please send good wishes and a safe holiday for my nephew! I appreciate them! 
Thanks so much!
Hugs, Lisa

Love your Cactus Christmas Card. Your Nephew is going to Love it and he is going to Love all of the goodies. Great Idea to send a Tree. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Your nephew will love the treats and it will be hard to be away from home for the holidays. I was just with the son the past two days and he keeps wanting to deploy which I dread. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
