Farm Fresh punchy challenge

Well hello again my friends, I hope all is well. It's a work day for me so I gotta keep this fairly short and sweet. :)
Be sure to scroll down to yesterday's post if you would like a chance at winning this week's blog candy.
Ok, I've got another Christmas card to share with you today and it works for the Farm Fresh Friday punch challenge over at The Greeting Farm. I loved the idea of using Riding Hood from the Signature set as a little holiday girl delivering a bit of good cheer in the form of some delicious Christmas cookies.
Now I'll be the first to admit that I was a bit more ambitious on this card than I had originally intended... you see, I didn't account for the amount of coloring all those cookies would require. Oy. But in the end it was worth it and besides all the coloring the rest of the card is pretty simple. When I found this scrap of oooooooooold Doodlebug paper I knew it was the perfect finishing touch. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
