Five Green Trees

This week's Merry Monday Christmas Challenge is a fun one!  
Make a card with 5 of something on it!
I used several FIVES.   Five tree stamps, 5 green inks, 5 snowflakes and 5 clear rhinestones.
Then I blew the plan - and made SIX cards while I had all the supplies out!
Can you tell I'm recently retired??  I have SO much more time to stamp now!! Whoo hoo!!
You'll find the Merry Monday Challenge here!   What FIVE of something will  you use while you are getting a really big jump start on your Christmas card stash?!
