It must have been the mistletoe...

the lazy fire... the falling snow...

Hello, hello fellow stamparistas!
T minus eight days and counting until Christmas, are you ready for it?
As you can see I'm still in the Christmas spirit when it comes my cards and I just couldn't resist inking up one of my new Moonlight Whispers stamps from Kraftin' Kimmies. I love the cute, yet kinda twisted Tim Burton-ish look of these little gals... it appeals to the snarky side of my personality, LOL!
So I chose Lillith to see if I could make her work for a Christmas card and I did a touch of altering by wiping away the frog from off the top of her head and drawing in her missing hair. Then I was also going to change her eyebrows a bit to give her a 'friendlier' look but her challenging little smirk spoke to me and thus the mistletoe and sentiment idea came to life. I love it when a stamp 'talks' to me and tells me what she wants to do. ;)
After that the whole card came together super quick and I added lots of sparkle to her dress and the polka dots so that I could enter this into both the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge and the All That Scraps challenge (I know, I know... by doing two it disqualifies me from the ATS challenge but I'm cool with it). :)

Okey dokey I'm audi... gotta get to work. See ya'll tomorrow with more challenge fun!
