Deck the halls he's up on the roof top...

Whoa oh oh oh...
Deck the halls he's up on the roof top!
Whoa oh oh oh
Deck the halls he's up on the roof top!

TGIF my stamping peeps!
If you haven't heard the Glee "Deck the Rooftop" mash-up yet, I highly recommend it... I totally rock out to it in the car, LOL! :)

I've got quite the busy day ahead of me so I'm just gonna dive right into my card. I originally set out to make something super quick and super easy but things quickly deviated from that plan... first, I decided to look through my TGF stamps since they are not only cute but usually pretty quick to color up as well. I found WS Miko from the Roll Call set and thought that with a bit of tweaking her dress could look like a nightgown but I wanted a less mischievous looking face so I kept searching and came across WS Reeta... ahhhh, perfect! Ok, so a head swap and tiny altering of her collar was a tad more work but not too bad. Then I pulled out my Christmas stamp binder to look for a good sentiment and instead I found these Martha Stewart clear stamps with the cutest little vintage Santa flying in his sleigh... ooooooh, I suddenly had an idea! Sure I ended up having to hand cut a window pane, computer print a sentiment and dig out some little Christmas lights from my ornament making days but I think it was all worth the extra effort. ;)

Well, thanks for stopping by, I hope you all enjoy this last weekend before the big holiday! Supply list:

Hi Amy, This is just the most adorable idea and card I have ever seen. I just love it. Can you believe that I still have not purchased Roll call set? I just love all of them, and think they are so cute! I hope that you have a great day. I am off to work myself. Both kids are doing better, but do to fevers off and one they still are out of school and now Christmas break. Hugs, Lisa
