It's the most wonderful time of the year

... there will be much mistletoeing and hearts will be glowing so be of good cheer!

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... yikes, it is down right freezing outside! This time of year always makes me extremely thankful for living in the times I do, where I do... how did people survive before electric heating? ;)
So I have today off and I get to stay all warm and toasty, snug as a bug in the craft room. Well, after one more quick run to the post office that is. Then the day is mine, man I love that feeling. I'm hoping to be really productive since I have a couple projects I need to get done asap.

Ok, onto today's card... so I just couldn't resist playing with another Ketto fairy and altering her into a Christmas card theme. I'm also entering this into the Flutter By weekly challenge since it is open to anything this go round. I wiped away the flowers Phoebe was holding then replaced them with the dollar stamp sign and present. In real life there is a whole lot of sparkle going on here but for the life of me I couldn't get it to photograph at all. Oh well.

Don't forget you still have until tomorrow night to post an entry onto this week's Sweet November candy, check it out here. The winner will be announced on Sunday. :)

Another brilliantly altered card!! Love your Christmas Ketto!! Especially the little no peeking sign!
Ugh! Blogger keeps eating my posts! Something bad in the blog air today!

I think YOU are a master of coloring, so I'm so flattered when you like my tutorials. ;o) I will get a tutorial on the Dahlia hair up as soon as I can. I can tell you that I used these colors: BG15, YG11, B00, a white Souffle pen, and probably BG23, though I think I forgot to put it on the list.
