Holiday joy

Howdy folks! 

Talk about a day... I ended up having to stay two hours late at work and then drive home in the snow storm that had been going steady all day. Luckily I had the 4 wheel drive to get me up all the hills since the snow plows must have been busy elsewhere. But I was totally beat once I finally made it home. 

That doesn't mean that I didn't make time for a quick card to unwind though. I've had this Christmas Lights Fairy printed out and waiting so I gathered some paper scraps together and colored her up to match. And because she is a little fairy I'm going to enter this card into this week's open challenge over at Flutter By. I kept things clean and simple and the only embellishments on it aren't even traditional paper crafting supplies... I had a miniature plastic light strand and cut it apart to add a couple of bulbs to the bow. I had to wrap it up after that though because my eyes were starting to droop. :)

Arighty friends, take care and I'll see ya in 24.

Very sweet...she is super simple but beautiful!! I'm wondering if you ever got the fairy I sent ya for your bday (not this past year's but 2011). Just remembered it right now..it was from SCACD and I think she was on top of a mushroom, sitting too like this one is. Anyway, I just noticed the little trinkets of mini Christmas lights in the corner. You rock!
