Christmas on Acetate

*** EDITED : WINNER AT PENNY BLACK AND MORE ***

******************************************************************************************

Happy Thursday!  After a week break in the tropical country, Malaysia, we are back to the gloomy, dreary weather!  Although it was a short holiday for the 13 hours flight, we were happy to see almost everybody back home and stuffed ourselves with lots of food! 

Today's card is stamping on acetate which I have not been doing for a while.  The urge to stamp on the acetate was inspired by Kelly from Lawnfawn who is having a holiday swap with Hero Arts.

The background sentiments are stamped with HA Greatest Gift with white StazOn and the owl set is from HA Three Owls which are heat embossed.

The bow is made from the same colour cardstock which are assembled by cutting into three different lengths, glued and ta na!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge : Penny Black and MoreThe Paper Players



Here are some photos taken during our vacation in an island, Penang, Malaysia.  Weather in Malaysia stays at 35 degrees celcius all year round and will drop to 25 degrees celcius  at night but with a very high percentage of humidity!

At the hotel overlooking the beach.  As it was not a holiday season, the area was rather quite which is relaxing.

 the sea was rather rough to jetski

After the ride

Spotted this at the resort


We were welcome home by the autumn colours in our garden

EEEK, jetskiing...either fun or terrifying, I don't know which I'd think! I hope you enjoyed your vacation - I too prefer to go in the off-season and avoid the big groups of people!
I love your sweet Christmas card too - the acetate is AMAZING! and the owls are so cute!
