Hi Everyone! Well, Christmas is just around the corner and I still can't believe it. Doesn't it seem as though the days between Halloween and Christmas go by in a flash? It's the same with the days between the last and first days of school. Then there's winter...Here in Michigan the months of January thru March seem to last forever. It's so cold and snowy and feels like the temps are below zero every day. I guess that why we appreciate Spring so much!

Anyhoo, I finally made it into my studio for a short bit this afternoon. I've been working on year-end financials for our business, along with the usual month-end stuff. That along with the holidays and birthdays has left me with no time to craft. I managed to color a Christmas image in bits and pieces here and there. I finally finished it with a simple background last night while my son was in the bath tub.

I know a lot of you are done with Christmas cards, but I feel like I've only just begun. Probably cause I have 'only just begun'! I will probably continue with Christmas and Winter cards through January and February because it'll be so cold and snowy here. I'll be working in some Valentine projects as well.

Well, enough chit's my card :-) I hope you like it!

Merry Christmas

This little sweetheart is #3092 Tucked Tilda from Magnolia's 'Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection'. She's currently available at Magnolia-licious, along with the rest of the gorgeous collection. I tell ya, I think Christmas and Winter stamps are my absolute favorite! And this collection is tops.  The cute little sentiment is from a local stamp show that I attended last summer.

The image was colored with Copic markers and cut out with a SB die. All of the ribbon and lace is from RRR.  Anyway, the silver corner pieces are from WOC and the bells are from Michael's. The large sparkly white snowflake in the upper left corner is from KaiserCraft and is available in a set at Love To Stamp for only $3 per pack. I just love these! I covered this one in white crackle paint and then gave it a coat of stardust Stickles. It's absolutely GORGEOUS!!!

That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for stoppng by! I hope you'll leave me a little comment to let me know that you were here :-)

Have a Very Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Love and Hugs,
