Merry Christmas! (A Day Late!)

My Christmas card was created (and actually mailed) to a friend as part of a Secret Santa gift exchange. She opened the package yesterday, which means that I can share the card today! BTW, the inside of the card was decorated as well, but I had to rush the card and package to the post office, so I didn't get photos. Bad me!
