I Believe

12 Days of Christmas ~ Day #3

I am just in love with how this turned out, it makes me smile every time I come home.





When I made this I wanted something that you could see from a distance and that had a weathered, rustic look to it.  
I made this by using layers of various colors to get the layered look.

I like this too and the quiche. I did not put two and two together and realize that you did the cute snowman family too. I love that! I might even try it because I have wood scraps and the paint.
