time for holiday cheer

This card is for the 2S4Y challenge and for the Moxie Fab Christmas in the Old Country Challenge. Now, I love the Moxie challenge, but my old country is Cuba, so it is hard to relate! So I really used her images as inspiration, and boy is there a lot of inspiration there! I love me some Moxie Fab! :)

I decided to use the cuckoo clock and do a punny Christmas greeting. I thought the felt was "old world" too. I just funked up the colors a little. The little candy border on the bottoms seems "old country" too. It's so cute! I did a different take on the 2S4Y challenge. Instead of having wavy card stock, I used a wavy sentiment with the "time for".

Now do you want to hear some INSANE? I do not own a "Merry Christmas" stamp. I have holiday cheer, jolly Christmas, peace, snowflakes, etc. but no "Merry Christmas"! What kind of crafter am I? This must be remedied!
