Merry & Bright

( ** Please scroll down for my Greeting Farm and Your Next Stamp posts **)

Hello friends.  This is my third post for today ... yes, I have been very busy lol!  I have finished one more Christmas card to add to my stash.  Hopefully I won't be scrambling to come up with Christmas cards at the last minute this year :)

This adorable image is Gingerbread Cookies, a digi you can find over at Funky Kits.  Isn't she a cutie?  I colored her with my copics and colored pencils and used some Glamour Dust on her star wand and the snow-covered ground.  I added some seam binding and pearls for embellishments.  I also used one of my new Memory Box dies, Night Sky Border.  I hope you find some time to get inky this weekend :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
