Be Merry

Well, it's Monday, what more can I say lol?  I hope you had a fun weekend.  It's not long now till Christmas ... are you ready?  I've got a couple more Christmas cards I'm working on.  I actually have enough for this year so I guess I'm getting a good start on next year's cards.  I have so many Christmas images I had hoped to get colored before the holidays and it looks like I'm not going to get to all of them.  I know most people are tired of making Christmas cards already ... but not me.  They are some of my most favorites to work on ;)

This sweet image is "a la modes Candy Cane Kisses" by My Favorite Things.  I don't see her on their website so I think she may have been discontinued.  I have had this stamp set for quite awhile and couldn't let another year pass without getting her inky!  She's colored with copics and colored pencils and I used Glamour Dust on her candy cane for a touch of sparkle.  MFT holds a sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers each week and I finally was able to play along.  You can find all challenge details here.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Enjoy your day!

Hugs, Anita
