The joy of family...

Hey there!

It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for the December 'anything goes' challenge over on the 7 Kids challenge blog. Playing along is easy, all you have to do is use at least one product that can be found in the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and link back to the challenge blog in your own post, which gives you a chance at winning a $20 gift certificate at the end of the month... who doesn't love that?

I'm a huge fan of the Little Bits collection that Stamping Bella introduced this past fall and each new release seems to top the last. I have so much fun mixing and matching all of the different accessory stamps to create personalized and unique scenes on my cards. For my card today I mixed stamps from four different sets; Santa Kids and Pets, Santa's Snacks, Santa's Mantle and the Fireplace Backdrop. I wanted it to look like this little tyke has snuck out of his bed to eat some of the cookies left for Santa on Christmas Eve. The sentiment is from a Mama Elephant set and I like how it kinda sums up everything in the scene, from the family in the photos, his pup friend and the wonder of a visit from Santa. ♥
Alrighty, I hope to see all of my crafty friends join the fun with me this month over at 7 Kids!
