It's like a Christmas serenade...

street musicians and the horse drawn sleigh
colored street lights watch the world at play
a Christmas serenade...

Hidee ho!
It's supposed to snow today but I'm doubting that it will be cold enough as we've been having a virtual heatwave of temps in the high 30s. ;)
Still, with my luck I'll be driving home from work in a snow storm! Oh well, I'll deal with that when and if I have to.

So as you can see, I went a little button crazy on this card! What can I say, once I started adding them I just couldn't stop, LOL. I also went a bit glitter crazy too but you can't see that in the pic. I guess sometimes you just need to give in to the sparkle and froof and just go with it. :)
I 'big headed' the Christmas Evie digi from Tickled Pink and though I didn't plan for it originally, after I had colored her hair black all of a sudden she started looking very Snow White-ish to me. So I ran with it which just leads us full circle back to why I went all shimmery and froofy... princesses want to celebrate the holidays too!

Alrighty, I think I must be a bit tired because it feels like I'm starting to talk nonsense a bit. Good thing I've got a couple days off after this. ;)
Oh! And before I forget... Tickled Pink has started their 12 days of Christmas count down with chances to win everyday! Just head on over to the TP blog to see how you can play along!

Amy she is absolutely adorable! I love all the buttons and I love how you colored her. She does kind of look like snow white, but who would ever mind that. Our weather has been much like yours this week. I can hear the snow dripping onto the airconditioner in the back of our house in the afternoons. I just keep thinking that we'll get hit again and all of this is going to turn to ice and boy won't that be fun... :O) I hope you have a great day at work. Hugs, Lisa
