Christmas is in the Air!!!

Good morning everyone!!! I had such a great day yesterday....first of all I got my hair cut which makes me feel human again...LOL!!! I also went shopping and found a few things on sale...Whoohoo!!! To top the day off, I actually made three cards....one of which I'll show you tomorrow. I made the first card for the Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoast to honor our fearless leader, Anne Ryan!! She has honored many worthy stampers with her wonderful challenges and now it's her turn!! I didn't case any particular card of her's but made a card in honor of her. The Christmas card features a Cotton Scrap from Crafty Secret...I just love the vintage look!!! It was mounted on a piece of Rose Red cardstock and the background paper is from Webster's Pages Home for the Holidays. The Heidi Swapp Ghost Shape snowflakes were colored with a copic and the pearls, lace, wrinkled seam binding, button, and ribbon finish it off. Congrats, Anne...hope all is well and you are able to return home soon!!!

This Christmas card was made for the Walzingmouse Sketch Challenge # 14 found on their challenge blog. The adorable images from their Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and Poppy Parade, cutout and attached with glue dots and dimensionals. The background papers are from SEI's Winter Song and the scalloped edge and ribbon are the finishing touches.

Thanks for visiting today.....I hope you have a great weekend!!!!
