Although it's been said...

many times
many ways
Merry Christmas

to youuuuu...

Hey gals, I haven't been able to get on the internet at home as there is something screwy going on with my dial up connection... I'm blaming it on the cold. ;)
So I'm down at my sister's place checking emails and getting this post up as quick as I can, hope you don't mind. :)

But I just had to share the news that Tickled Pink Stamps will be sponsoring the Cupcake Craft Challenge regularly in 2011 and we are kicking things off with this week's challenge to make 'thank you' cards. There is a Tickled Pink prize up for grabs so you should check out all the fun here for a chance to win!

Luckily for me I have this great 'handwritten Christmas' sentiment set from Paper Trey Ink and one of the stamps on it was perfect for this challenge as it is both Christmas-y (which is what I'm making right now) and thankful as well. I decided to do just a tiny bit of altering to 60s mod Ivy by drawing in some pointy elf ears on her... now I think she kinda looks like the elves from the movie "Elf" or the Rudolph animated feature. Too funny! :)

Alrighty friends, have a great day... hope you don't run into any cotton-headed-ninny-muggins! LOL

cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
paper- Scenic Route (Garland)
