The lights on my tree, I wish you could see...

Hi-dee-ho!

Does anyone else feel like that mad Christmas rush is on? Like I mentioned before, most of my Christmas prep is actually done and taken care of but these last few days I just feel like I'm running, running, running. I guess I just have to chalk it up to be that crazy, wonderful time of year. :)

I think this may be the first Pure Innocence cutie that I've used on a Christmas card this year... shock! I know, I know... I can't believe it either. As quick and easy as they are to color, they are usually a regular go-to for me when I'm short on crafting time. Now, here I am with only a couple cards to go before the big day and this little Christmas Caroler may be the only holiday PI that I'll ink up for 2011. I'll just have make sure the others fulfill their inky destinies on next year's cards. LOL

Once again, this is another mish-mash of different paper scraps that were running loose on my table and needed a home. Looking at it now, this card may be a bit busy but something about the mix of prints brings to mind the crazy print and color combos young kids tend to put together when trying to dress themselves. And since this PI looks to be about that age, we'll say that it works for her. ;)

Ok, now it's time for me to go be merry and bright for my customers at work.
Later gators!
