All I want for Christmas...

Good morning!
I'm having one of those really good mornings where it just feels like I got up on the right side of the bed and it's going to be a wonderful day. Considering I'm not much of a morning person, I'll take this feeling and roll with it. :)
And how about I spread some of these good feelings and announce the winner of this past week's Sweet November Mistletoe Snowhill candy? Random Generator has done its magic and our winner is.............................

crafty amy!

Congratulations Amy! Email me with you mailing addy and I will get your goodies off to you tomorrow!

Now don't forget that tomorrow I will be posting an all new Sweet November candy kit featuring the second December fairy, Holly Starshine. You won't want to miss out on a chance to win this one! :)

Ok, now for today's card... are you tired of seeing Christmas cards from me yet? LOL
Well, I'm still going strong with them and I even made this one work for Marlene's sketch over at the Sugar Bowl challenge. She also wanted to see you use zigzags in some form so I added rub-on zigzag stitching across the middle of the card. Once again I put my packaging to use with the paper strips coming from the cover of a My Mind's Eye paper pack and I also altered the Gorjuss Girl just a bit by drawing in long sleeves on her dress. And I was feeling super brave so I went a head and hand wrote the sentiment... I NEVER do that! LOL

Ok, I'm off like a rocket... see y'all tomorrow! :)
