Happy Holidays

Happy Friday to all of you!  So did any of you hit the stores bright and early for the 'Black Friday' sales?  I did it a few years ago but not anymore.  The lines are way too long and some of the people are really mean and pushy.  I have family and friends that look forward to this day every year ... what can I say?  They're crazy lol!


Today I'm sharing a card made with one of the older images available over at Funky Kits.  We get so many new stamps from companies that we sometimes forget about the older ones, right?  So I decided to give this little cutie some inky love.  This image is Annie With Star and she's from the Leanne Ellis Designs collection.  She's colored with copics and colored pencils and I used Glamour Dust on her wings and star wand.  The border edge punch is a Martha Stewart punch.  I added some ribbon with a bow, and a couple of pearls.  My yummy papers are Authentique - love the patterns and traditional Christmas colors in this pad.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs, Anita
