Merry Christmas...

Hey there!

I've had this Swiss Pixie colored up since CC Designs previews last week and wanted to get her on a card even though previews are over. I've been really diggin' the December Documented line from Simple Stories so naturally I colored Santa's Helper to match. I think part of the reason I'm loving these papers so much is because it gives me that cool chalkboard look without having to do any fancy stamping techniques. Hey, I'm a lazy crafter remember? ;)
Seriously, this card couldn't have been any quicker to put together. Which was a good thing because I was pretty busy yesterday. Hopefully with my day off today I can really have some fun in the crafty room. I'm proud to say that there is finally a clean desk waiting for me in there, LOL! 

I guess that means I should bid you adieu and see what kind of a mess I can make. 
Later gators! :)

AWE this is Super Cute and that paper is totally Perfect with her!!! Yeah on a clean desk. I am about half way there with mine. Telling Brooke to put stamps away after she uses them has really been a chore!!!
Have a Fabulous Wed.
Hugs, Heidi

So cute, Amy. Love the chalkboard look with the pops of colour! Clearing desks and (dining room) tables is a real challenge for me. ;-(
