Festive Friday challenge

The challenge this week at Festive Friday is this photo:

It kind of reminded me of a country lodge setting, and I remembered I had  SU"S retired Christmas Lodge set. I bought it at a garage sale last summer, and haven't really used it much yet.

I'm still at the lake with limited supplies, but I was hoping I had stamped some lodges and had them in my Christmas stash I accidentally brought along in one of my paper boxes. 

Sure enough, I found one.

No Christmas designer paper along, though. But I still had plenty of plaid, so I used that again. I added some bakers twine and a button. I used cherry cobbler, crumb cake, and vanilla card stock.
I was so wishing I was back home in my craft room, as this photo reminded me of dozens of things I could have used!

Oh well!
 At least I was able to come up with something!
