Rockin' around the Christmas tree

Mornin' friends!

I am sad to report that my Walmart let me down once again... no Glee Christmas cd out yet, sigh. :(

But I don't give up easily so I will be heading back up there after work tonight and hopefully I'll have better luck then. Speaking of Glee... I thought last night's episode was okay but not a top fave or anything. Though I was pleasantly surprised about how well Gwyneth held her own and the mash-up at the end was fun. :)

Alrighty time to move on to my card for today and this one is for the LLB challenge. It's an open Christmas theme and you may be surprised to see that with this theme I didn't even use one of the fab new Christmas Lolitas! You see I got an idea in my head to use Sookie after listening to the old Brenda Lee, "Rockin' around the Christmas tree" song on the radio the other day. So I cut the microphone out of her hand and cut up a some silver ribbon and tied it on little knots to create the garland that she's getting ready to string on the tree. I thought her outfit even worked because her sweater could be one of those crazy Christmas sweaters that Grannies love to give, LOL!

Anywho, I had a lot of fun with this one and I'm sure you will too if you play along with us this week! So pull out a Lolita and get your Christmas groove on! :)

Toodles!

Hi Amy. I love this card! What a great idea. I really love the differant colored gems. They remind me of the tree lights. I have to report that my Walmart was a bust last night at well! I had a really nice sales girl looking all over, but she said they had all the Christmas pallets in the way back and she wasn't allowed to get them out. I don't get it! Anyway, I really loved last night. I got sick of Sue and Will's ex-wife, but I love Singing in the Rain so it was really fun for me. Hope your day goes fast so you can listen to wonderful music on the way home. :O) hugs, Lisa

Absolutely adorable! So much fun to use a non-Xmas-stamp like that - she fits perfectly with that sentiment! :D

Oh this is too cute and we listen to Brenda Lee alot at Christmas time which will start on Thanksgiving as that's when we start putting up or tree and decoratiing our house. I think Sookie looks so cute rockin around the Christmas tree. Oh and hopefully Wal-Mart will have the CD when you get there. I missed it last night as I have 2 sick kids to attend to.
Hugs:)
