Joy to you and me...

Hi guys!

I hope everyone had a fun filled Halloween weekend and are now ready to jump headfirst right into Christmas cards. I will admit that as much as I enjoy making Halloween cards it was a treat to shift in to a whole different color palette with this first Christmas card of the season. It has been at least a month since I've played along in the Sugar Bowl Challenge so I printed out this super cute digi called Gift Wrapping and I am entering my card into the current 'anything goes' challenge over there. I paired this sweet Christmas fairy with some scraps of my all time favorite Simple Stories holiday collection. The faux burlap and stitching gets me every time and I think it really suits the nature like feel of this image.  I also added a lot of sparkle and shine to the entire image but you can only really see it on the word 'joy' in the sentiment. Believe me, in person this CAS card is really quite eye catching.  :)

Ok, happy Monday to you all and I shall see you again tomorrow!
