I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas,,,,,

Good afternooon! It's THURSDAY and it's almost over! One more day til the weekend! I have been having so much fun this week making cards, my mojo has really been in high gear,,,I feel badly dumping all these on you, but the more I make, the better I get, so on to the blog they go :)

I have today a card made with the absolutely DARLING image "Snow Day" by Mo Manning,,,,she had it up for 24 hours as a freebie, and I managed to snag it! (then I bought another one LOL, go figure! Oh well, 2 for the price of one, right??)

She's now three dollars (still a bargain) and you can get her HERE!

I colored her with copics, and used a TON of bling and glitter paper,,,,,,,she's really pretty!!!! I also used my nesties AND my new Marianne Creatables straight edge poinsettias that I had to order all the way from Great Britain,,,,fortunately, they didn't take 3 weeks to get here, but that was the LONGEST 12 days of my LIFE LOL. I wanted them badly!

I stamped some snowflakes in silver, because I wanted them to be very subtle, and I think they are,,,,i wonder if you can even SEE them LOL. The sentiment is a JustRite Christmas nested sentiments,,,,I love them, the fonts are always SO gorgeous!

I'm going to enter her in Mo's Thursday challenge, the theme of which is THE GREAT OUTDOORS, and you can find that HERE! She certainly LOOKS like she's having fun in the great outdoors!

I'm also going to enter her in the Stamtacular Sunday challenge. The theme is ANYTHING CHRISTMAS, and she's certainly very christmassy with her gorgeous sparkly poinsettia. It reminds me of how us children would rush outside on Christmas morning if there was fresh snow,,,,,then we'd run back in to open our stockings by the fire place! Who doesn't think Christmas when they see snow?

You can find the Stamptacular Sunday challenge HERE!

so come on over to one or both challenges, and finish up those holiday cards!!!!!

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!!!!!!!!!!
