Hi there! Did you miss me? LOL! I know it's been a big hustle & bustle out there getting ready for Christmas. I still can't believe it's THIS coming weekend! Where does time go?
I had to pop in this week to share this card with you featuring Sweet November's Winter Kid Tess & AmyR's Holiday Greetings sentiment. I love these new Winter Kids from Amy Young. They are super cute and I like the smaller size of the images.
I had this idea of what I wanted my card to look like, but I had to find the right patterned paper to pull it off. When I rumagged through my mountain stack of Christmas paper, I found this older paper from October Afternoon and the light bulb went on. I wanted Tess to look as if she was standing in this quaint neighborhood just feeling the winter air on her face. She's no doubt thinking of something pleasant, like the smell of warm, fresh baked cookies! Okay, that's what I'm thinking about - always! LOL! I couldn't resist adding a big ol snowflake to her cute hat. These over-sized embellies seem to be the latest thing for beanie hats. I have to admit I ♥ the way they look, however I don't see them looking that way on me.
I'm not sure I will be posting again this week, so in case I don't I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
