happiness and cheer... fun for all, that children call their favorite time of year...
Good Monday morning to you!
Do you realize that Christmas is only like two and a half weeks away? OMGosh where did the time go? Seriously... I feel like I still have way too much to get done before the big day. Bet I'm not the only one though. ;)
I'm really looking forward to doing some holiday baking. Cookies... cakeballs... jello popcorn balls... all the best goodies to plate up and give to friends and family. Hopefully I'll get to start that this coming weekend and have some help from my mom and sister.
But this past weekend was all about the card making and I was all about using more 'oldies but goodies' from my stash. In fact, everything on my card today is from an Anna Griffin die cut sheet that I noticed was dated 2005... so yea, I've been hanging onto them for a while now. ;)
I still love them though and I'm so glad I finally put them to use because they are just perfect for a fun, girly Christmas card.
The image is a mix of Wild Sprouts Annika's head and digi Wild Sprouts Camille's body. I loooooove that stylish little coat so don't be surprised if you see me use it with a bunch of different heads on upcoming Christmas/winter cards. LOL
And on top of all that this card works for two challenges this week! First is Anyone for Anya's open challenge and second is Quixotic's challenge to use charms (which I have dangling from Annika's hand).
In all my blog cruising I've come across quite a few 'new to me' challenges that I really want to have a go at soon... who knows, I just may break my record and combine three challenges next time! LOL :)
