Swiss Pixie Christmas Card

Is it Friday yet?  Nope, just Thursday...and Thursday is one of my busiest days of the week.  So, I was able to take some time last night and make a few cards so that I don't have to rush to make a new card every day.  I'll have a few on backup just in case things get really hectic.  And they're gonna get hectic, so you'll have to keep reading below to see why.

  So, I threw this card together in literally 15 minutes.  The image was already coloured, and now that I see it on the screen I realize that her little ornament should either be red or have some sparkle, so I'll be fixing that tonight.  The Paper is Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly and the Sentiment is AmyR Stamps.  I got this image through the Canadian Snag Group over on SCS, and it was interesting to colour.  I'm pretty sure she's on Gina K paper, and it was my first time using this paper, so the blending was slightly different than with my Neenah Paper.  Anywhoo...add this one to the every growing pile of Christmas Cards!

So, why are things going to get hectic you ask?  Well, I'm trying to write a story...which I will share with you when it is finished, and I'm very slowly plugging away at the storyboard for a novel - some of which I may share on my other blog, and in 2 weeks I'm going to visit my very bestest friend in the whole world!  She lives in London, ON and has been there for 10 years.  Goodness knows why, but I've never managed to get there to visit before and I'm so excited to be going!  So, I'll be trying to make extra cards over the next couple of weeks so that I can keep up my schedule of posting every day of the working week, plus my DT posts!  And, I've found a couple of great Scrappin' and Stampin' stores in London that she's agreed to take me to!
