Everyone, everywhere, feels the thrill in the air...

Christmas eve, Christmas eve...

Well here we are, the big day is finally upon us... luckily for me I've got the next few days off to enjoy the holiday. Yeah! Still, I'm going to be busy visiting family and friends so it's another quick post from me today but how could I not share the friend I made for Vivi? ;)
Do you recognize who's face I used to make my little boy elf? It's Edward! Isn't he perfect?! And all I did was stamp Vivi then cut out her face and a space on the brim of the hat so his hair would show when I placed his colored up face behind it... kinda like those painted wood scenes they have at amusement parks and you stick your face in the holes to get a photo of you as a monkey or something. :)
And you may have noticed Vivi herself is looking a bit different too... well I took a cue from Traci and added some longer locks to Viv and I also gave her the teddy from the Oh Baby set. Now Vivi and Eddie are both ready to pack the last toys on Santa's sleigh before his big ride tonight. Then I imagine they will be off to someplace warm and sunny for some well earned R&R before it's time to head back to the ol' workshop. LOL
Oh and I also used the TGF sketch #6 for this card... hope you all are finding time to play along!

Have a very, very merry, merry Christmas my friends! :)

Merry Christmas Amy. These two are simply ADORABLE! I did not buy Viv, just something about her....However you have changed my mind, and now I am not sure I can live without a safe and happy few days off. I myself get done at 1pm today and don't have to return until Monday. Yay!!! I so can not wait to play with my family and lounge in my new PJs.(new family tradition for kids and us). Be sure to get to bed early so the big guy won't pass you Christmas, Lisa
