All I want for Christmas is you

Hello, hello!

It pretty much snowed all day yesterday and there is more still to come but thankfully I've got today off so I don't have to worry about going anywhere. It's also my birthday today and my sister has promised to make a German Chocolate cake for my par-tay tonight... should be good times! Until then though, I plan on holing up in my craft room and playing the day away! :)

Before I get to my card for the day I still haven't heard from a couple of the Sweet November Birthday candy winners...

The winner of Birthday Boy from my blog is- Tonia
The winner of Penelope and Fiesta from Rinne's blog is- Frea

Tonia and Frea, I need to hear from you with your mailing addys by Thursday or I am going to draw two new winners. You can email me at: pete_danger@hotmail.com

Ok, card time... today I altered Cheeky Nurse from The Greeting Farm to turn her into a cheeky li'l gal holding some mistletoe. I just wiped away her stethoscope using a baby wipe and then drew in the mistletoe. Oh and I also wiped away her original eyebrows and traced Cheeky Glamour's brows onto her for a softer look. Once I had that down she kinda reminded me of a 'sexy' version of Mary from "It's a Wonderful Life" so of course I had to give her brown hair, LOL! Now I'm wondering if every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings, what happens every time a couple kisses under the mistletoe? heeheehee ;)

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!
