Merry & Bright

( ** You can enter my birthday candy here ** )

Hello sweet stampers.  Well, as my title says, I've got something merry and bright to share today ... you may need your sunglasses!

This sweet little girl is Gingerbread and you can find her over at Funky Kits.  She is colored with copics and colored pencils.  And yes, I know that her coat is a little too pink and bright ;)  But I wasn't about to toss her in the trash and start all over - especially since her coat is the last thing I colored lol.  She's got lots and lots of Glamour Dust on her outfit and then I added some little pearls for her buttons.  I also added some Glamour Dust and pearls to the snowflakes.  My snowflake border is from Memory Box.  My little stack of Christmas cards is starting to grow ;)

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

Hugs, Anita
