Happy holidays...


Today my mom and I are heading to town for the November Hallmark Open House. I don't think I have anything on my list anymore but there is a Peanuts nativity that Mom is really hoping to get her hands on for a good deal. Even if I don't find anything it will still be a fun trip... just so long as the snow stays away for a bit longer. :)

So today's card is for the Farm Fresh Challenge over on the TGF blog. It is to use washi tape on your card and since I just got this cool OA chalkboard looking Christmas washi recently it was a great excuse to tear into it. That lead to me finally trying my hand at the chalkboard stamping technique with the Rudolph Headlines stamp and I'm pleased with how it turned out. Once I had that all done I needed a cutie to be heading into the reindeer show so I did a bit of altering and used Wild Sprout Gracie's head (minus the pigtails) with Wild Sprout Gigi's body. I love how her sweater dress looks with that jaunty cap, now she's all dressed up for the winter weather.

Okey dokey, thanks for stopping by... I'll catch ya on the flip side!
