What are your Christmas Collectibles?

Hi stamping buds, here it is Thursday already, where does the time go? So what do you collect for your Christmas collectibles? I used to collect Santas but don't anymore and I collected angels but no longer do that and I used to collect apples but don't have those anymore either so I guess I just collect stamps. LOL! Anyway today I have a card that I stamped for the JUGS and ColourQ card challenges to share. Yes, a one layer card. UGH! I don't like those very well. I knew what I wanted to use as I haven't played with this Christmas Collectibles set yet. I made a pot of Turkey Rice Soup today when I got back from running some errands and then I stamped this card.  My picture looks kind of fuzzy to me but maybe my glasses are dirty or maybe I have snow in my eyes as Winter showed up here today. Just cold temps. Now I will start counting the days till Spring comes. Just sayin' I am not a winter fan! 
 I had to add some bling to this card or I would have thrown it out. It is definitely not my favorite card and it won't go into my Christmas collectibles. You know, when you have this grand idea in your head but then it doesn't come out on paper. That is what happened here. I used the colors or let me say tried to for the Colourq as I didn't have some of them. I stamped the ornaments in Real Red, Gumball Green, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana. I textured the middle of my card with the Delicate Designs EF. The Merry Christmas is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
