Warm & Cozy Christmas

Happy hump day!

Ok, so I just have to talk Glee for a moment. It was back with a new episode last night and I thought it was a great one. I especially loved the music, so many great songs... but Finn's rendition of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun blew me away! OMGosh, I couldn't believe how amazing it was and I will totally be downloading it onto my ipod today! :)

Moving on to my card, this one was totally just for fun and wanting to play around with a bit of altering. That and I also wanted to play along in the Monday Fun Day challenge to use three of something on a card. I've had this idea for a while to create a cocoa sipping Anya using Cafe Ian's mug holding arm. And since this was going to be a Christmas card I thought it would be cute to put her in some fun Christmas pjs so I pulled out Dress Me Anya's body and pajamas. Then to finish her off I grabbed Travel Anya for her great head of hair. Doesn't she look like she's just woken up and is ready to settle in for a Christmas morning full of opening presents and snuggling with Ian? :)
And as for the challenge, my original plan was to use three pattern papers but then I went and paper pieced her pajamas which got me up to four. So when I added the holly leaves I made sure that there were three on there... but technically I also used three TGF stamps to create this Anya, LOL!

Alrighty, I've got a day off and I'm hoping to get a video or two done so we'll see how that goes.
TTYL!

Oh Amy, I know I say it all the time, but I really think this is one of my all time Favorite one of your cards. She looks so darn adorable with her warm PJs on and her awesome cup of coco to go with that Christmas morning snuggle. :O) I am going to be looking like this come the 25th, only I'll have Betty Boop on my pj's and a warm cup of coffee with the best cream and sugar mixed in. lol... I can not wait for Christmas day this year. Hope you are doing well. I kind of fell off the face of the planet this week, but I am getting back into it. Hope you have a great Friday my friend. Hugs, Lisa
